- Vivo has refreshed the V20 barely months after its launch.
- The phone has been equipped with an updated Snapdragon 730G SoC.
- The V20 2021 brings a triple camera set-up.
Vivo has gone ahead and launched an updated version of the V20 in India. The phone has been listed on Vivo India and Amazon India. Interestingly, this is the fourth Vivo V20 series device from the company this year after the Vivo V20 SE, the original V20 and the V20 Pro.
It appears essentially to be the same phone as the original V20 launched earlier in the year. However, there is a key change here. The V20 (2021) has been launched with an improved chipset as compared to the previous phone.
Vivo has also decided to launch the new device at exactly the same price as the original V20. As such, the new Vivo V20 will be available for purchase in India at a price of Rs 24,990. The device has been launched in two colours -- Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody colors.
Vivo V20 (2021): Specifications
The panel here is a 6.44-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display running at a resolution of 1080x2400 pixels. Although, it does not support fast refresh rates like some of its competitors do. The display uses a now normal 20:9 aspect ratio and a high pixel density of 408ppi. The panel also supports HDR 10 for high-quality video playback and has a high peak brightness.
Under the hood, the phone comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of onboard storage which can be expanded further using a MicroSD card. The phone pairs this core hardware with software solutions such as the Ultra Game Mode which can help it improve the gaming performance of the device. The Vivo V20 2021 also brings Android 11 out of the box with Funtouch OS 11 skin over it.
For cameras, the Vivo V20 2021 comes with a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 primary lens which has been paired with an 8-megapixel multi-function camera that can click super wide-angle, bokeh and super macro shots. There's also a 2-megapixel monochrome lens also for adding extra detail to shots.
The Vivo V20 2021 also brings a big 4000mAh battery pack that should be good for a day's usage on moderate-heavy use. Additionally, the phone also offers one of the fastest charging solutions in the segment with its 33W Flash Charge support. Vivo claims this can charge the device's battery to 65% in just 30 minutes.
