Enhanced Beauty and Clarity

The vivo Y95's 20MP AI front camera allows users to capture more details to render clearer selfies. It is also equipped with artificial intelligence technologies such as AI Face Beauty and AI Selfie Lighting that detect age, gender, skin tone, skin texture, and lighting environment to accurately enhance features, without the user having to lift a finger.


Smarter User Experience

The vivo Y95 has the capabilities to understand what every user needs through vivo's AI assistant Jovi. These include counting daily steps and calories, providing results of sports games and weather updates, and prompting users to take a rest if they work late into the night.


The vivo Y95 has an updated AI Game Mode that improves functions such as Floating Call Alerts, Background Calls, and the Game Keyboard. It has added features like the Game Assistant where a quick sideways swipe gives users easy access to all these functions, so they can choose what to turn on or off without leaving the game. In addition, the all-new Auto Gaming Mode keeps games running in the background while other apps are opened so game progress will always be saved.


The vivo Y95 allows users to enjoy two worlds at the same time with its Smart Split feature. A simple, three-fingered swipe splits the screen in two, enabling users to run two apps at the same time, such as messaging friends while simultaneously watching videos.


vivo Y95's camera is integrated with Google Lens technology to bring AI image recognition. Using an industry-leading deep learning algorithm, combined with neural network technology, it can identify objects and scenes in photos taken and perform related searches.


See Beyond the Limits

The vivo Y95 is equipped with an all-new 6.22-inch Halo FullView™ Display with a maximized screen-to-body ratio of 88.6%. The front camera sensor's placeholder in the top middle of the smartphone evokes the halo of a rising sun. The smartphone rewards users with a more expansive mobile viewing experience with its 1520 x 720 HD+ resolution that ensures vibrant colours and clarity on screen.


Double the Brilliance

The vivo Y95 also sports a 13MP+2MP AI dual rear camera which captures depth-of-field information to recreate professional-grade bokeh shots effortlessly. Thanks to AI technology, the smartphone intelligently identifies 140 different photo scenes to automatically optimize every shot to deliver richer blue skies or livelier flowers. Even without third-party apps, the vivo Y95 adds fun to photos with its own range of fun, unique stickers that are enhanced with AR technology.


Play on with Power that Lasts

The vivo Y95 houses a high capacity battery to ensure longer performance. Its 4030mAh battery is complemented by an exclusive, smart-energy power management system allowing users to play at will without running out of battery. This is further enhanced with the smartphone's 4GB RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 octa-core processor so users can run multiple apps with ease. The vivo Y95 has 64GB of internal storage which can be expanded via microSD card.


Beauty in Your Hands

The vivo Y95 is available in Aurora Red and Starry Black. It adopts a whole new gloss painting process on the back, with the Starry Black colour perfectly blending a deep black and shimmering blue, along with the beautifully pale purple that is visible when viewed from certain angles, invoking the far-flung corners of the universe in the palm of your hands.
