The Chinese handset maker, Vivo, has been silently making its presence felt in the Indian handset market by silently launching a number of smartphones. It has launched several budget friendly smartphones in the country that have been hit with the common mass. Now the handset maker has come up with a new entry level smartphone called Vivo Y31A, which is a good handset with decent specifications.
