- Vivo Y30 Standard Edition has been launched in China
- It is a slightly downgraded version of the Vivo Y30
- Vivo Y30 Standard Edition price in China is around Rs 15,700
It appears that Vivo has launched yet another Vivo Y30 variant in China. Named the Vivo Y30 Standard Edition, the smartphone seems to be a downgraded version of the Vivo Y30 that was launched in India back in July. Given that the Vivo Y30 is already out and about in India, it is unlikely that the Vivo Y30 Standard Edition will be launched in the country. Vivo Y30 price in China is set at RMB 1,398 (approx Rs 15,700) and it seems unlikely that the phone will be launched globally. It could release with a different name in some countries, but that remains to be seen.
The Vivo Y30 Standard Edition runs an octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which can be expanded by up to 256GB via a micro SD card. Its massive 5,000mAh battery supports charging at a measly 10W over a micro-USB port, meaning that you may have to leave your phone plugged in for extended periods.
Much like the regular Vivo Y30, the Vivo Y30 Standard Edition comes with a 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel that has a resolution of 720 x 1600. Vivo has also thrown in a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for good measure. Moving on to the optics, the Vivo Y30 Standard Edition comes with just two rear cameras. The 13MP primary camera is assisted by a 2MP depth sensor. Selfies and video calls are handled by an 8MP module nestled at a waterdrop-style notch located at the centre of the screen.
