Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i to Make Their Way to Nepal Soon

It was just a while ago that we learned that Vivo might be bringing the Vivo Y95 to Nepal. Now, we are hearing reports that Vivo will be bringing in two more phones to Nepal – the Vivo Y91, and Vivo Y91i – very soon.

These phones will lie on a different price category than the Vivo Y95. Customers who like Vivo smartphones will get the chance to choose between 3 new phones this new year. This is a good move from Vivo.

Vivo Y91/Y91i Specifications

At the front, Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i have an HD+ 6.22 inch IPS LCD display. There’s a tiny teardrop-shaped notch at the top. Inside, both the phones are powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 Soc. But, the Vivo Y91 has within it 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage while the Vivo Y91i has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.

In terms of camera, both the Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i sport a dual 12MP f/2.2 primary sensor that is combined with a 2 MP, f/2.4 depth sensor at the back. There’s a small 8 MP f/2.0 selfie camera hiding beneath the notch. Unlike some other phones that we have seen from Vivo in the past year, Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i have a regular fingerprint sensor at the back.

Inside both, these phones is a massive 4030 mAh battery. This is the same sized battery as the Vivo Y95. Like the Y95, Vivo has chosen to fit this phone with a micro USB port.

Impressions

Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i look identical to each other.  And these phones look identical to Vivo Y95. I like the fact that even the budget model of Vivo phones receive the same care to design that its more expensive counterparts receive. The only difference between the Y91 and the Y91i is the size of RAM and internal storage.

These phones are definitely not for pixel peepers with its HD+ resolution spread over the massive 6.22 inch display but Vivo’s displays are good enough for average users. The Snapdragon 439 is not the most powerful chipset out there but it can handle calling and texting pretty well.

Apps like Instagram and Youtube will run well but you can forget about gaming or intensive multitasking. The 3GB RAM is good enough, but 2GB RAM might leave you desiring for a little more RAM for smoother multitasking experience. Both 32GB and 16GB internal storage might not be enough for most people’s needs.

Vivo’s skin on top of Android may not entice everyone but most users won’t mind. At least they are shipping the phone with Android 8.1.

Vivo has shipped these phones with fingerprint sensors ar the back instead of relying completely on a face unlock feature. The cameras will produce bright and vibrant images on broad daylight and suitable lighting conditions. But I don’t expect them to work well in low-light conditions. One thing buyers would like to note is that Vivo tends to oversoften people’s faces to make them look more ‘beautiful’. The selfie cam is just fine though.

The battery on these phones is extremely huge and it should last you a full day of heavy use with no complaints. If the battery is your top priority when buying a phone, the Vivo Y91 and Vivo Y91i are well suited for you.

The prices of these phones haven’t been disclosed yet. Looking at the specs, we are thinking the Y91 and Y91i will lie well below the price point of 30K.
