Vivo Y53s has launched in Vietnam as the 4G variant of the Vivo Y53s 5G that debuted in China last month. The phone is a budget-friendly offering and is slightly different from the Vivo Y53s 5G. It packs a triple rear camera — one more sensor than the 5G variant — and gets a standard 60Hz display refresh rate, which is a downgrade from the 5G model’s 90Hz display refresh rate. The Vivo Y53s is powered by a MediaTek SoC rather than the Snapdragon 480 found in the 5G model.
