The Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has further expanded its budget smartphone line-up in India by silently launching the Vivo Y93 smartphone in the country.

The Vivo Y93 is a successor to the Vivo Y83 which came earlier this year with a Notched display. To recall, the Y93 was first unveiled in China, back in November. Later, the brand announced an upgraded Y93s model with MediaTek Helio P22 chipset and 128GB storage.

The Indian version of the Y93 is apparently the same Y93s but with trimmed storage space and a fingerprint scanner at the rear.
