Vivo Y74s has silently been launched in China. The new Vivo phone is identical to the Vivo Y76s which debuted in the Chinese market earlier this month. The smartphone features dual rear cameras and has a waterdrop-style display notch. Vivo Y74s is also powered by MediaTek Dimensity 810 SoC. Further, the phone comes in two distinct colour options to choose from. Vivo Y74s launch comes just ahead of the Vivo Y65 5G which is scheduled to arrive in Malaysia on Tuesday, November 23. The upcoming Vivo phone is teased to have a design similar to that of Vivo Y76s but carry features including triple rear cameras to deliver some distinction.
Vivo Y74s price has been set at CNY 2,299 (roughly Rs. 26,800) for the single 8GB + 256GB of onboard storage. The smartphone is currently listed on the Vivo China website in Galaxy Blue and Starry Night Black colours. It is yet to be available for purchase in the country. Details about the global availability and pricing of the Vivo Y74s are yet to be revealed.

For selfies and video chats, Vivo Y74s has an 8-megapixel selfie camera sensor at the front, with an f/2.0 lens.
