Just like the other Vivo smartphones, the new Vivo Y3 also comes with a glossy finish polycarbonate body. There is also a 2.5D curved glass on top of the display. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie based Funtouch OS 9 out of the box. While the device is also loaded with in-house voice assistant Jovi, there is no dedicated button for it.
Talking about the display, the Vivo Y3 sports a 6.35-inch IPS display with Full HD+ resolution and 19.3:9 aspect ratio.

It is backed by a 5,000mAh non-removable battery and also supports 9V/2A (18W) fast charging. However, it uses the dated MicroUSB port instead of the USB Type-C port for charging.
