Vivo had launched the Y71 in India back in April, and now the smartphone’s 4GB RAM variant has received a price cut. The price cut was revealed by Mumbai-based mobile retailer Mahesh Telecom, and is currently also reflecting on Amazon India.
The price cut is only applicable on the Vivo Y71 4GB RAM variant, which was launched for Rs 12,990. This variant has been given a Rs 1,000 price cut, and will now be available for Rs 11,990. Notably, the 3GB RAM variant price remains the same – Rs 10,990.
Despite the affordable price tag, the Vivo Y71’s highlights include a tall 18:9 FullView display surrounded by very thin bezels. For security, the device also comes with face unlock feature. At its price range, the smartphone faces tough competition from devices like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, and the Honor 9 Lite to name a few.
