The Vivo Y73 borrows a lot from the X60 series that launched earlier this year. It starts right from the design with a rectangular camera hump as well as the overall design theme. The gradient finishes are new for the Y series this year.

Inside, the Y73 is relying on a MediaTek Helio G95 chipset, which is the same chip we have seen in the Redmi Note 10S this year. To help with the performance boosts, Vivo is giving the Y73 the same software features that arrived on the V21 and X60 series. The Y73 gets an extra 3GB RAM via the Extended RAM feature, which allots a part of the main storage to RAM for multitasking needs.
Vivo is also giving the Y73 the ability to expand the storage to 1TB via a microSD card slot. The phone is running on FunTouchOS 11.1 based on Android 11 out of the box.
The rear cameras consist of a 64-megapixel main camera sensor that is accompanied by a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera. The phone relies on a 4000mAh battery, which itself relies on a 33W fast charging solution. You also get a 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a USB-C port.
