High performance at affordable price point with latest addition to vivo’s Y Series: vivo Y100

Johannesburg, 04 Jul 2024

The latest addition to the renowned vivo Y series, the Y100 promises high performance at an affordable price. With standout features such as vivo's distinctive colour-changing design combined with an ultra-slim body, rapid 80W FlashCharge, crystal clear 120Hz AMOLED display and a high-resolution 50MP AF camera, the Y100 distinguishes itself from the competition, embodying innovation and superior artistry.

Design, durability, aesthetic appeal

The vivo Y100 boasts a striking design that perfectly balances style and functionality. It comes in two captivating colour options – Crystal Black and Breeze Green. The Breeze Green edition features vivo's iconic colour-changing design, transforming from a light green to a deeper shade under sunlight or UV light. The breeze texture on the back mimics the gentle whisper of grass swaying in the wind, adding a soothing touch to the user experience. Additionally, the lightweight metallic high-gloss frame enhances its premium look and feel.

The Y100 is also designed for durability, capable of enduring splashes and sprays of water with ease. It features IP5X dust resistance and IPX4 water resistance, making it a robust choice for everyday use. The Fluorite AG technology achieves fine control of crystals, allowing colours to pass through the glass to the fullest extent, resulting in a transparent appearance while retaining benefits such as wear, scratch and fingerprint resistance. The Y100 has also undergone rigorous testing, including an 8 000-cycle steel wool wear test and a 9H pencil hardness test, ensuring exceptional durability.
