Vivo Y15s (2021) was launched in India on Friday. Debuting in Singapore last year, the new Vivo phone comes with a waterdrop-style display notch and carries dual rear cameras. The Vivo Y15s is also based on Google’s Android Go edition — the streamlined version of Android. It comes in two distinct colours and packs a 5,000mAh battery. The Vivo Y15s is likely to face tough competition from the likes of the Moto E40 and Redmi 10 Prime.
Vivo Y15s price in India, availability
Vivo Y15s price in India has been set at Rs. 10,990 (MRP Rs. 13,990) for the sole 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. The phone comes in Mystic Blue and Wave Green colours and is available for purchase through the Vivo India E-Store as well as various retail stores in the country starting Friday.
In November, the Vivo Y15s was launched in Singapore at SGD 179 (roughly Rs. 10,000) for the same 3GB + 32GB configuration. The Vivo Y15s shouldn’t be confused with the Vivo Y15S, that was launched back in 2015.
