Vivo Y15 Specifications and Price in Kenya

Vivo Y15 smartphone

The Vivo Y15 is the first smartphone by the company to officially go on sale in Kenya. Yes, you could previously buy Vivo smartphones in Kenya but the company had not officially launched them in the country and you could get them through third-party retailers and distributors. The phone officially went on sale in Kenya yesterday and can be available through offline stores at the moment. I have not seen it on online platforms like Jumia but that may change soon.

The Vivo Y15 specifications are good enough for a smartphone available in Kenya for Ksh 22,000. This puts it in direct competition with the Samsung Galaxy A50, Huawei P30 Lite and the new Huawei Y9 Prime 2019. With these rivals, the Y15 has an uphill task given that Vivo is a new brand in the country and not that many people know about it yet.

Below are some of the key specifications of the Vivo Y15 to help you decide if it is a smartphone worth your money.
