Vivo Y66 Performance

The Y66 is using same hardware that powered the Vivo V5 and the V5s. It’s the MediaTek MT6750 octa core 64 bit clocked at 1.5GHz coupled with Mali T860 GPU. If you check the MediaTek website for MT6750 the GPU is optimized for 720 resolution hence makes no sense using FHD resolution.
