Design and Display
The Vivo Y53s 5G design may not be entirely new, but there is no denying that Vivo did an total design makeup with no bridge between the Y53s and the Y53 from 2017. We have got a very modern look. The bezles were shaved, we have more beautiful colours now.
Speaking on colours, this device comes in three colour options that includes Black, blue and silver.
Moving on to talk about a reminisced design. making a good scrutiny of other already released Vivo smartphones reveals reminisces from the Vivo Y72 5G. The reminisces can be seen on both the front and rear panels.
On the rear, we have a camera module with a vertical array cameras alongside an LED flash on the bottom. However, the cameras here are dual, as opposed to being triple on the Y72 5G.
Another difference you may pick up here, is the gradient system is more pronounced on the Vivo Y72 than on the vivo Y53s, however, there is no denial that both smartphones bear the similar design language.
