The Vivo T1 5G mid-range smartphone was launched last week and went on sale in India from today, as promised. The Vivo T1 5G is essentially an iQOO U5 in disguise, which was launched in China in December 2021. Vivo seems to have found the product from its sister company to be apt for the Indian market but brings it under its own branding in India. The Vivo T1 5G packs in a large display, high screen refresh rate, Qualcomm’s latest processor, triple rear camera setup, and a big battery, among many other features. Let’s have look at its detailed specifications.

The 6GB + 128GB variant is priced at ₹16,990 and the topmost variant with 8GB + 128GB storage is priced at ₹19,990. It is available for purchase from today through Vivo India’s website, Flipkart, and Vivo’s authorised stores across India.

The Vivo T1 5G sports the iPhone-esque flat sides and a polycarbonate build. It gets a large 6.58-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD with a 240Hz touch sampling rate and 120Hz screen refresh rate. However, there’s a V-Type or waterdrop notch at the top of the display to house the selfie camera, which might upset a few in this day and age of hole-punch cutouts. The handset is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 695 SoC (System on Chip) built on the 6nm process. The graphical duties are handled by the Adreno 619 GPU. It is equipped with up to 8GB of RAM and comes with 128GB of UFS 2.2 storage. You can expand the RAM by an extra 4GB via the Extended RAM feature. The storage can also be expanded by up to 1 TB via the microSD card slot.
In the camera department, it comes with a primary 50MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture and gets two 2MP ancillary cameras to complete the triple camera setup. Vivo phones are known for their selfie shooters, and this one, too, gets a 16MP sensor at the front to please selfie addicts. The Vivo T1 gets camera modes such as Portrait, Night, Live Photo, Time-lapse, and more. However, Night Mode is available only in higher 6GB and 8GB RAM variants.
Connectivity options of the handset include 5G, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, USB-C, 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, fingerprint reader and USB OTG. Onboard sensors include an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, compass, and a virtual gyroscope sensor, which may upset gamers. The smartphone is powered by a 5,000mAh battery coupled with 18-watt fast charging support. It runs on Android 12-based FunTouchOS 12.0 software out of the box.
