Last week, an unannounced Vivo Y52s mid-ranger smartphone was spotted on Chinese Telecom’s database along with some of the device’s key specs. Right now, the Vivo Y52s has also been officially listed on JD.com where the device is now available for registrations and will begin shipping from December 12th.
In terms of specs, the Vivo Y52s comes along with a 6.58-inches LCD display with FHD+ screen resolution and a smooth 90Hz screen refresh rate. Its front-facing selfie camera will be an 8 megapixels sensor housed within the usual dewdrop-notch.
