Vivo V20: Specifications
With the Vivo V20, the phone maker has managed to pack in a lot of impressive hardware for the price. To begin with, there's an expansive display on the outside. 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 will come hiding an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G 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 also brings Android 11 out of the box with Funtouch OS 11 skin over it.
For cameras, the Vivo V20 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 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.
