“The Vivo Y81i India launch will be in the next few weeks but an exact date is not available yet”
Vivo is set to launch the Y81i smartphone in the Indian market in the next few weeks, according to 91mobiles’ retail chain sources. However, an exact date for the Vivo Y81i India launch could not be ascertained at the moment. The smartphone was launched last month in Malaysia, sports an iPhone X-like display notch, and is an entry-level smartphone. Its key features include the large 6.22-inch screen, Face Access facial unlocking tech, and 3,260mAh battery.
Vivo Y81i price in India
Vivo Y81i price in India will be under Rs 10,000, meaning it will be a rival to Xiaomi’s popular Redmi 6-series smartphones. It remains to be seen whether this model will be available only offline or if it will come to online channels as well. The original Vivo Y81 handset costs Rs 11,990 in the Indian market and can be purchased both online and offline.
