Vivo India launches the Vivo Y72 5G, this time with a Snapdragon 480 chipsetIt's quite a habit Vivo is developing by launching one and the same smartphone with different names and different smartphones with one and the same name but for different markets.

The latest example in this direction is the Vivo Y72 5G for India. Even though it has the same name as the Vivo Y72 5G announced back in March, it offers a number of differences. For starters, the dimensions are different - the new device is shorter and lighter. It is also available in two different colors - Slate Gray and Prism Magic. The front camera has an 8MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture instead of a 16MP one. Moreover, the main rear shooter packs a 48MP sensor, instead of a 64MP one and there's a 2MP secondary camera. It also omits the ultra-wide shooter. Finally, instead of a Dimensity 700 chipset, the Vivo Y72 5G for India packs a Snapdragon 480 chipset.

All the rest is the same - a 5000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging, a 6.58-inch FHD+ IPS display, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.1, USB Type-C port, side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
