Vivo Y83 Design
It was designed by aluminium alloy and it reflects light beautifully, just as expected. Vivo totally ignored the dual rear camera trend on this one and brought just a single rear camera with the LED flash right beside it.
There’s also a rear fingerprint scanner at its usual position, just in case you’re not in the mood for Face ID. It measures 7.7 mm in thickness and it’s quite lightweight, weighing just 150g overall. You can get it in Black, White and Red colours.

Flowing with the current trend, the Y83 comes with the notch screen. This allows the screen to stretch all the way to the top with a notch in place. The notch is also super minimal, while the bottom chin came out to play as well.
