Camera Features

As for the camera setup, the Wiko Y61 has a single rear camera of 8 MP with an LED flash for low light background shooting. The camera also features HDR, Panorama and it can record 2K video quality. Upfront is a single selfies snapper of 5 MP which is still better than none. The front camera will capture nice photos anywhere at any time and you can use it for video calling as well.

Hardware And Software

The Wiko Y61 has a Mediatek MT6761WV Helio A20 chipset that is built with 12 nm process technology. The phone has a Quad-core CPU clocking at speed of 4×1.8 GHz and PowerVR GE8300 for graphics. It’s powered by the Android 10 operating system based on Go Edition with some Go apps preinstalled on it.

Storage Capacity And Sensors

There is no fingerprint scanner on the phone, instead, you will get other sensors like accelerometer, proximity, and compass.

Battery Power And Network Connectivity
