The latest addition to this series, the Vivo Y22T, has recently made appearances on various certification platforms, shedding some light on its specifications. Notably, the device has been spotted on NBTC, Geekbench, and most recently, it has received Bluetooth SIG certification, confirming the inclusion of a Bluetooth 5.0 module.
Vivo Y22T launch seems imminent
While the Bluetooth SIG certification doesn't disclose specific specifications, it strongly indicates that the smartphone's launch is imminent.
According to previous reports, the Vivo Y22T is expected to be a rebranded older smartphone, offered at an attractive price point. It's anticipated that the differences between this model and its predecessors in the same series might not be substantial.
This upcoming affordable smartphone is likely to retain a similar design and hardware profile while targeting a competitive price range. Geekbench has provided insights into the smartphone, revealing that its model name is "Bengal," and it will support 4G LTE connectivity. In benchmark tests, it achieved scores of 377 in single-core performance and 1501 in multi-core performance. Under the hood, it will be equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm chip, comprising 4 high-performance cores clocked at 2.40GHz and 4 power-efficient cores running at 1.90GHz. There will be a 6GB RAM variant, and it's expected that a 4GB RAM variant will also be available.
Moreover, the Vivo Y22T is anticipated to feature a robust 5000mAh battery with support for 18W fast wired charging. It's likely to run on Android 13 out of the box. For photography enthusiasts, a dual-rear camera module is expected, featuring a 50MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary sensor. Additionally, there will be an 8MP front-facing camera for capturing selfies and facilitating video calls.
