vivo Y31s (t1 version) launched with lower RAM/storage and slower charging speed

The vivo Y31s launched earlier this year as the world’s first smartphone powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 SoC. A couple of months later, the company debuted the Y31 Standard Edition with a different chipset and display. Now, three months later, the brand has released yet another model in the series called Y31s (t1 version).

Y31s (t1 version) Specifications and Features

The newly launched Y31s (t1 version) is a watered-down variant of the Y31s Standard Edition. The two devices only differ in terms of storage configuration and charging speed.

The smartphone flaunts a 6.51-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels, 60Hz refresh rate, 1500:1 contrast ratio, and 16.7 million colors. The screen has a 20:9 aspect ratio, 89% screen-to-body ratio, and a dewdrop notch.

The phone is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset coupled with 4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 64GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. If required, users can make use of the 0.5GB extended RAM feature.

As for optics, the handset houses a 13MP (wide) + 2MP (depth) dual-camera setup on the back. There’s also an 8MP snapper for selfies and video calls inside the notch.

On the connectivity front, it supports dual-SIM, 5G, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, and GNSS (GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS, NavIC). Other features of this phone include a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, compass, and proximity sensor.

The Y31s (t1 version) runs OriginOS based on Android 11 and is backed by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging. Last but not least, it measures 164.15 x 75.35 x 8.5mm in dimensions, weighs 189.7g, and comes in two colors (Lake Light Blue, Titanium Empty Gray) 

Y31s (t1 version) Price and Availability

The Y31s (t1 version) is priced at ¥1,399 ($218) in China. The handset is currently listed ‘out of stock’ on vivo’s official website. But it should be available for purchase soon.

As of now, there’s no official word on its availability in global markets.
