The Vivo Y77 is official. And if that sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the second time it’s happened this week, but that first Y77 5G launched in Malaysia was a different phone in terms of both design and specifications. Apparently Vivo felt that name is so cool that it was going to reuse it even if it causes a confusing mess.
The Chinese Vivo Y77 doesn’t officially have 5G in its name, even though it supports the latest networks. It’s running on a better MediaTek Dimensity 930 chipset compared to the Dimensity 810 on its international counterpart. It’s paired with either 6GB, 8GB, or even 12GB of RAM. Storage is 128GB or 256GB.

The display is also better. It’s a 6.64-inch 2388x1080px IPS LCD with up to 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz of touch sampling rate. There’s a side-mounted capacitive fingerprint scanner, or you can use the 8MP selfie camera for face recognition.
The cameras on the Chinese Y77 are the same as the Malaysian one – a 50MP f/1.8 main camera and a 2MP f/2.4 dedicated macro.
There’s a 4,500mAh battery isnide with 80W dual-core Flash Charge. The Vivo Y77 runs Android 12 with Origin OS Ocean on top.
The Vivo Y77 comes in three colors and four processor and RAM configurations. The 6/128GB starts at CNY 1,499, then the 8/128GB for CNY 1,599, the 8/256GB for CNY 1,799, and finally the 12/256GB for CNY 1,999.
