Top 5 global smartphone brand Vivo has announced a price cut on its Y51 smartphone. Effective August 31, consumers can now purchase the Vivo Y51 in Vivo’s Concept Store in SM Light Mall and in authorized resellers nationwide for PHP 5,990—PHP 2,000 less than its PHP 7,990 introductory price.
The Vivo Y51 is the company’s first smartphone offering in the Philippines since its arrival in March 2016, and features a glass-on-glass design sandwiching a premium rounded metallic frame. The 5.0-inch Y51 smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz quad-core processor configured with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space expandable to 128GB via micro SD card, and is capable of 4G LTE and dual-SIM/dual standby.
The Y51 also features premium smartphone functions powered by Vivo’s unique approach to Android with the Funtouch OS 2.5. The Android Lollipop-based custom OS supports functions such as smart wake gestures, smart click functionalities that can be assigned to the volume control rockers that can activate even when the screen is off, and voice-based commands that operate the smartphone’s front 5MP and rear 8MP cameras.
“We see the rising demand from consumers for smartphones offering premium features that give them exceptional value for money. As we continue to reinforce our dedication to the local smartphone market, Vivo has decided to offer the Y51 at a more competitive price and make the smartphone a more compelling choice to consumers who demand performance and value,” said Vivo Philippines Vice President Hazel Bascon.
The Vivo Y51 comes in black and white colors, and is available at the Vivo Concept Store and major smartphone retailers nationwide.
