vivo Y100 comes in a dual-ring design at the back inspired by the professional twin-lens reflex camera. Complementing the Fluorite AG Glass back panel, the camera zone has a color pearl-like effect, called the Pearl Glass that highlights the premium style and gives the vivo Y100 a more dramatic visual effect.
