Lighting up your selfies with Vivo

TOP 5 global smartphone brand Vivo introduces another companion for young Filipinos who love to express themselves with the Vivo Y55 smartphone. 

The Vivo Y55 promises to “light up your selfies” with its Smart Screen Flash and high-quality front-facing camera that elevates your selfie game.

“Young Filipinos nowadays are not afraid of expressing their feelings and sharing it with their friends. We see how frequently they share stories online and offline, and they often use their smartphones to document their daily lives. With the Vivo Y55, we kept that behaviour in mind, and made sure that we deliver a device that not only keeps up with their multi-tasking demands, but also provides useful features that help them elevate their selfie experience,” said Hazel Bascon, Vivo Philippines Vice President.

Vivo Philippines Product Manager Mark Cuevas presents the new features of the Vivo Y55 smartphone to technology media. At right, a model showcases the Vivo Y55 smartphone during its launch event. 
The Vivo Y55 features a 5.2-inch, 1280x720-pixel display on an ultra-slim unibody design. It is the first entry-level Vivo smartphone to be powered by an octa-core processor—a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 running at 1.4GHz, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. Its main camera is rated at 8MP, and can take photos and scale it up to 32MP in Ultra HD mode, while its front-facing camera snaps photos at 5MP, assisted with its Smart Screen Flash technology. The Y55 is powered by a 2,650mAh battery, ensuring longer staying power for extended storytelling on social media.

The Y55 is also Vivo’s first smartphone to come with the new version of Funtouch OS 2.6, based on Android’s Marshmallow operating system. This brings a host of new and improved features, such as Smart Split 2.0, Eye Protection Mode, and improved memory management, among others.

“The Vivo Y55 is a testament to Vivo’s dedication in developing high-quality products that embody the brand’s values. It seamlessly integrates top-quality hardware with highly-optimized software, giving users a more premium experience that adds value to the product. The Vivo Y55, along with Vivo’s new Funtouch OS 2.6, is only the beginning, and Filipino consumers can look forward to more exciting products that can give them more value for their money,” concluded Bascon.

The Vivo Y55 is now available in major retailers and at the Vivo Concept Store and will retail for P7,990.
