The Vivo Y19 has been launched in Thailand, and the phone seems to be a rebranded version of the Vivo U3. The phone has been seen to sport the MediaTek Helio P65 SoC instead of the Snapdragon 675 SoC on the U3, but everything else seems to be the same. The Vivo Y19 has a triple rear camera setup at the rear, waterdrop-style notch, rear fingerprint scanner and gradient back panel finish. The other big USP of Vivo Y19 is the large 5,000mAh battery.

For the triple rear camera setup on the Vivo Y19, it features a 16-megapixel main camera with f / 1.78 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle snapper with f / 2.2 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth sensor . On the front, there is a 16-megapixel camera with f / 2.0 aperture in waterdrop-style notch for selfies and video calls.
The Vivo Y19 is also equipped with a 5,000mAh battery for 18W dual engine flash charging and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for authentication. The phone also supports Face Unlock, but has a micro-USB port for charging and file transfer instead of the modern USB Type-C port. It measures 162.15×76.47×8.89 mm, and weighs 193 grams.
