Vivo Y83, the company’s latest budget smartphone, is claimed to have silently made its way into the Indian market. According to information obtained from an established Mumbai-based mobile retailer, the Vivo Y83 with a FullView display and an iPhone X-like notch is now available in India at a market operating price (MOP) of Rs. 14,990 for the 4GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage variant. Notably, the smartphone was launched in China last week in a 64GB inbuilt storage model that is priced at CNY 1,498 (roughly Rs. 15,800).
As we mentioned, Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom on Thursday took to Twitter to reveal that the Vivo Y83 is now available in India at a price that takes on the recently launched Samsung Galaxy J6. According to the retail box, this phone is part of the ‘Make in India’ initiative. We’ve reached out to Vivo India for confirmation of the smartphone’s launch in India, and will update this space when we hear back.
