This Vivo smartphone has a relatively low weight and has an ultra-thin body - 8.25 mm. It is safe to say that it is one of the thinnest to support 5G networks in this price range. Thanks to this feature, you can comfortably hold it in your hand and be confident in your stable grip.

The fingerprint scanner in the Vivo Y55 5G is mounted on the side. In this way, you unlock your smartphone in one go and take action.

Looking at the colors of the case, you have only two choices - blue or black. In order to achieve the effect of miniature stars, the innovative technique of engraving shiny elements was used. In this way, the matte finish stands out with glitter and is quite resistant to dust and fingerprints.

As for the design of the Vivo Y55 5G, we must also say that it does not differ in shifting the key elements. The rear camera is traditionally positioned in the upper left corner and looks simple.


One of the reasons you like the Vivo Y55 5G is its 6.58-inch Full HD + display with B-Cell technology. Its integrity is slightly disturbed by a small slit in the form of a drop at the top. The 8-megapixel selfie camera is stored there.

The screen characteristics of the Vivo Y55 5G make it the standard minimum for this price range. The aspect ratio is good, the frames around the screen are a bit thick, but some users like them.

The level of maximum brightness is such that you can easily read from the screen on a sunny day.


At the heart of the Vivo Y55 5G lies the MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 5G chipset combined with the Mali-G57 MC2 graphics processor and 4 or 6 GB of RAM, depending on the modification. The storage in both cases is 128 GB. For those of you who need more space for photos, videos and music, an external memory slot is provided.

The smartphone supports 2 SIM cards and comes with Android 11 operating system.

The Vivo Y55 5G has innovative technology to add RAM at the expense of storage. In this way you will ensure more comfortable and smooth work with applications and games. And speaking of mobile games. If you want to get the most out of them, take advantage of Ultra Game Mode 2.0.


Vivo Y55 5G has an 8-megapixel front camera with which you can shoot videos with a resolution of 1080 pixels. It is positioned in a small slot at the top of the screen. In the menu you will find the useful Dual View mode, with which you can show yourself while a landscape or other object is visible in the background.

The rear camera, in turn, is a combination of a main 50-megapixel lens and two 2 MP sensors, charged with the task of taking macro photos and bokeh effect. The main sensor has Eye Autofocus technology. For better night photos, we recommend using the manufacturer's Super Night mode.

The bokeh effect camera works great and you can count on spectacular shots to share with friends.

In the menu you will also find AI Face Beauty - a mode with which you can easily and quickly beautify your face. It is based on an advanced algorithm.

Also worth noting is the Multi Style Portrait mode, which can be used with both front and rear cameras.

Autonomous work

Vivo Y55 5G has a battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh and supports fast charging technology with a power of 18W. According to the manufacturer's calculations, you can count on up to 20 hours of online surfing without interruption or 10 hours of playing games.


Vivo Y55 5G belongs to the middle class device and supports 5G networks. It is designed for anyone looking for a lightweight and aesthetically pleasing smartphone at an affordable price. Its body features an ultra-thin design and will provide you with maximum comfort in everyday use.
