“The Vivo Y91i is a budget offering with waterdrop notch display and a beefy 4,030mAh battery”
Vivo launched the Y91 budget smartphone in India back in January this year, which came in as one of the most affordable phones with a waterdrop notch display. While the handset is pretty affordable, the brand has now launched a toned-down version as well to target the entry-level market. Named the Vivo Y91i, the new smartphone comes with a single camera on the back and misses out on the fingerprint scanner.
