Vivo is ready to unveil a brand new Y-series smartphone in India. After leaks and rumors, the company introduced the Vivo Y73 ( 2021) in the Country. The new smartphone is a 4G device boasted by MediaTek’s Helio G95 chipset. The device features a design that quite resembles the Vivo V21e but obviously has different specifications.
Vivo Y73 (2021) specifications
The new smartphone flaunts a 6.44-inch Full HD+ display with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels of resolution and 408 pixels density. It is an AMOLED display and as usual, brings an optical in-display fingerprint scanner. The display features a standard 60Hz, 20:9 aspect ratio, and HDR10 support. The device also offers Widevine L1 certifications. The display also brings a waterdrop notch and an optical in-display fingerprint scanner.
Under the hood, the Vivo Y73 packs an Octa-Core MediaTek Helio G95 processor. The device features a 12nm fabrication process. This chipset features two ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.05GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up 2GHz. The device also has 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. If that isn’t enough for you, the storage can be further expanded as the device has a dedicated micro-SD card slot. The device runs FunTouchOS 11.1 which is based on Android 11.
In terms of optics, the smartphone offers a 64MP triple-camera setup with an LED flash. The primary 64MP sensor brings a bright f/1.79 aperture. The device has a 2MP macro camera with an f/2.4 aperture. Last but not least, we have a 2MP depth-sensing module with an f/2.4 aperture. For selfies and video calls, the handset boasts a 16MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Vivo Y73 draws power from a 4,000mAh battery with 33W fast-charging support. The handset also has a USB Type-C, a 3.5mm audio jack, and an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The device runs Android 11 straight out of the box which anything but a surprise. Instead of the Chinese-focused OriginOS, we have the Funtouch OS 11 counterpart.
