Budget-friendly Android 12 smartphone vivo Y16 now live in the Philippines!


vivo finally launched its newest premium-looking budget smartphone, the Y16!

In all of its boxy 2.5D design, it flaunts a smudge-free fluorite texture in variants Drizzling Gold and Stellar Black. It packs a good punch for a lightweight build in terms of highly smooth performance thanks to its better processor with the benefit of a long-lasting battery capacity. It features “Do Not Disturb” and “eSports” modes for gaming. From its meager price, you’ll be able to enjoy the latest Android 12.
