Following positive feedback for the 2020 generation, the new Y72 also features the long-lasting 5000 mAh battery, which lets consumers go further and enjoy more between charges. And thanks to vivo 18W Fast Charge topping up the battery is quick as well.



Putting the camera first

vivo strives to create the best possible smartphones for photography in each price band by always putting the camera first to help consumers take their perfect shot. When consumers are living their best life, they want their pictures and videos to be just as good and it doesn't matter if they are an amateur or a skilled photographer. That is why vivo offers the right smartphone for everyone to meet the consumer's specific needs. And the Y72 5G perfectly reflects that mission – even at an affordable price. Its rear facing camera system features three lenses with four main shooting functions: Ultra HD, ultra-wide angle, bokeh, and macro to let consumers shoot all kinds of scenes from any distance. The high resolution 64-Megapixel main camera offers electronic image stabilisation for blur-free and clear photos and videos. Thanks to the Super Night Mode consumers can capture vibrant and clear night sceneries. For wider group shots and panoramic vistas, there is an 8-Megapixel wide angle camera, while the macro camera lens lets people see the world from a different perspective and shoot subjects just 4cm away for captivating close ups. A 16-Megapixel front camera rounds-off the strong camera array, providing crisp selfies – even in low-light situations.


Fresh, sophisticated design

With its vivid 6.58" FHD+ screen for a high-quality viewing experience, the fast and reliable side-mounted fingerprint scanner and shifting colours of its Dream Glow finish or the elegance of Graphite Black, the Y72 5G looks and feels premium.
