When the Vivo Y50 launched in June, it likely started the trend of having large batteries in budget devices. Today, as competition increases in this segment, Vivo decided to drop the price by 1,000 rupees. There was also a similar drop in prices for the Vivo S1 Pro, which was launched in January this year.
The price cuts that were officially announced today are now reflected on both the official website and ecommerce partner sites like Amazon and Flipkart. While the Vivo Y50 is now available for the only variant with 8 GB + 128 GB for 16,990 Rs, the Vivo S1 Pro for the only variant with 8 GB + 128 GB can be purchased for 18,990 Rs.

Vivo Y50 specifications
The Vivo Y50 is powered by a Snapdragon 665 SoC with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage. It shows a 6.53-inch Full HD + panel with a resolution of 2340 × 1080 pixels. Vivo calls it an “iView” display. The device has a pinhole camera on the right side of the device that houses the front facing camera. It contains a 5,000 mAH battery with a Type-C interface.
In the camera department, the handset has a quad camera array with a 13MP primary lens, an 8MP wide angle lens, followed by a 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensors. There is a 16-megapixel pinhole camera on the front. The rear view camera supports the super night vision mode, which reduces the noise and outputs better photos in poor light conditions.
The company had success with its most recent flagship, the Vivo X50 Pro, which received some decent reviews and had robust sales in that category. The camera technology and the best hardware and design package of the smartphone were praised as well as the solid battery life and the attractive display.
However, the Vivo V17 was seen as a next-generation design with last-generation internals, although its prices at 21,990 rupees in India resulted in some of the older models having to take a price cut, which may be the case today. Since the device didn’t get a positive rating, it makes sense to push a device that has been well received.
