Last month we have witnessed Oppo has unleashed a reimagined smartphone from 2015. Actually, to follow the naming convention Oppo had to unleash a new smartphone whose name was already taken. The same thing is now happening with the Vivo, a new smartphone from Vivo has been announced which was already available since 2015. Not to confused with the new Vivo Y50 series debut Vivo Y51.
The company earlier had launched the Vivo Y51s with 5G connectivity back in July. The Y51 arrives with Snapdragon 665 SoC at the helm, that is 4G enabled smartphone. The Vivo Y51s is 5G network capable whereas the Y51 has the 4G network. In that case, the Vivo naming conversion is out of my head. The letter ‘s’, ‘i’ are used to represent a lite version of a particular smartphone series. But here, the Y51s is feature-rich variant while the Y51 is a lite version.
