Vivo has quietly announced another mid-ranger in India dubbed the Y12G. The phone was listed on Vivo India’s official website, revealing its specifications and pricing and it appears to be quite similar to the Vivo Y12a.

Design and Display

Vivo Y12G Unveiled With Snapdragon 439 and 5,000 mAh Battery

The phone has a 6.51-inch IPS LCD with 720 x 1600 pixel resolution and a small waterdrop notch for the front camera. Overall, the phone looks no different from the Vivo Y12a or the Vivo Y12s 2021, so we can only assume that it is the Indian variant of the two.

The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the side atop the power button.

Internals and Storage

The Snapdragon 439 SoC is at the helm of the device with an octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, and 32GB internal storage. This can be expanded by up to 256GB with a microSD card.

As for software, the phone boots Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11 on top.


The main camera on the back is a 13MP wide-angle lens next to a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. This camera setup can record 1080p videos, but they are limited to 30 FPS.

The waterdrop notch front camera is an 8MP shooter, but it can also record 1080p clips at 30 FPS.

Battery and Pricing

The phone packs plenty of battery capacity at 5,000 mAh, but it only has a 10W charging speed. A compatible charger is packed in the box.

The Vivo Y12G will be available for $148 in Glacier Blue and Phantom Black color options.
