Vivo Y69 with 16MP selfie camera now available for P10,990

The Vivo Y69 is an upgrade to the Vivo V5 Lite – it now has a fingerprint scanner and comes with Android Nougat. Its clean design in a tight polycarbonate housing and saturated-enough “only” HD display may not turn heads, but the mix of the 16MP selfie camera (its selling point) at the around-P10k-price-range is the phone’s allure. Throw in Vivo’s own added touches – Smart Slip 3.0 (run two apps at once in a split screen) and App Clone (use two social media apps but with different logged in accounts) and you have a midrange selfie and chatting phone to consider.
