And Vivo never fails to impress with its body outlook. Y89 comes in Aurora Blue and Black variants, non-gradient yet catchy.
Vivo concentrated much on Cameras and neglected specs for this price range. So, this too seems to be another camera special and nothing else. Considering its overall specs, it seems to be okay and over-priced.
