The vivo Y33s is now available in Malaysia for RM999

September 9, 2021

vivo Malaysia has just launched its latest Y-series smartphone, the vivo Y33s. Priced at RM999, the device is now available for pre-orders on Shopee, Lazada and vivo official site.

The Y33s is a mid-range device powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 paired with a generous 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

Y33s Key Highlights

Aside from its reliable performance, the Y33s is an all rounder of a device with decent specs and features at its price point. Here are some of the key highlights:

  • Camera: The Y33s is equipped with an impressive 50MP main camera and complemented with a 16MP selfie camera.
  • Battery: Packed with a 5,000mAh battery and 18W fast charge, the device can power you through the day.
  • Display: Enjoy unwavering clarity from movies to games and protection for your eyes with a built-in blue light filter on a large 6.58″ IPS LCD display.
  • Design: Weighing ~182g with a thickness of ~8.0mm, the vivo Y33s is a sleek and stylish device that captivates.

Additionally, vivo is having an exclusive bundle deal with instax Fujifilm with the option to purchase an instax Mini 9 or instax Mini Link Printer at discounted prices.

Final Thoughts

Despite being a new release, the Y33s offers specifications that are almost identical to the Y31 that was released earlier this year. With the only key difference being its processor (Helio G80 vs Snapdragon 662), we don’t think a switch to the Y33s will be necessary.

In addition to competing with its prior model, the Y33s also offers fairly similar specs to the Redmi 10 that was launched just a couple weeks ago. In the end, it will boil down to overall design, brand loyalty and UI preferences when it comes to picking a favorite.
