One thing that was quite unusual with Vivo is that Vivo always uses odd numbers for its smartphone. V series smartphones, so far, include smartphones such as Vivo V15, Vivo V17 and the recently launched V19. So will the year 2020 company change this practice as well? At the moment, the gesture is on this side only.
The name of Vivo V20 is also different and its design approach is also new. The new Vivo V20 smartphone is thinner than the Vivo V19 and it comes with Dewdrop Notch replacing the hole-punch camera, which seems to have taken the company a few steps back. Talking about the back of the Vivo V20, it will be seen that its rear panel design is similar to the Vivo X50 smartphone, which has a stepped design for the camera module. The Vivo V20 phone has a triple rear camera setup, with the primary camera located at the top while the other two cameras are located below the primary camera. However, like the Vivo X50 Pro, you will not receive the Gimbal stabilization system in this phone. This camera module has a silver accent, which gives a premium look.
In Vivo V20 you will get three color options, which are Moonlight Sonata, Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody. We have a Sunset Melody Unit, which has a gradient finish on the back. As soon as the light comes on the back panel of the phone, the colors change from blue to purple, purple to orange at different angles. This is certainly attractive compared to other alternatives. This version is slightly thicker 7.48 millimeters and its weight is 1 gram more than the other two options. Vivo offers a glass back that gives a premium feel and has a matte finish that does not allow fingerprints.
The Vivo V20 has a 6.44-inch AMOLED display with 20: 9 aspect ratios and thin borders on all edges. It has full-HD + (1,080×2,400 pixels) resolution and HDR10 support. This phone also has an in-display fingerprint scanner. The power and volume buttons are placed on the right side of the screen, which is easy to use even with one hand. Let me tell you, the power button has a textured finish, which distinguishes it from the volume button.
This Vivo phone is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor, which has 8 GB RAM. We have used this processor in Redmi Note 9 Pro and it is capable of providing good performance. Vivo has given 128 GB storage in Vivo V20. If this storage is not enough for you, then you can also increase it by 1 TB. You will have to pay Rs 24,990 for the base variant of the phone, while if you want to buy its high-end variant, then you will have to spend Rs 27,990.
Speaking of software, Vivo V20 is one of the few smartphones that work on Android 11. This phone works on Android 11 based on Android 11 and our unit unit is equipped with September Android security patch. The phone’s UI was well-known and easy to use. Three-button navigation is enabled by default, but you also have the option to switch to the swipe gester. There are also some pre-installed apps in Vivo V20 and during the setup there is a suggestion to download some other apps which we had skipped.
Speaking of the Vivo V20 camera setup, it has a 64-megapixel primary sensor with f / 1.89 lens, 8-megapixel secondary sensor with f / 2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens and with f / 2.4 lens. A 2-megapixel monochrome sensor has been given. It has a 44 megapixel selfie sensor with F / 2.0 ‘Eye Autofocus’ lens. The Vivo V series is known for its selfie focus smartphone, so it will be interesting to see how the V20 performs.
If you are excited about the battery, then you will be happy to know that Vivo has given a battery pack of 4,000 mAh in this phone. Although it is lower than some other smartphones we have tested recently, it can still be considered as an average for a modern smartphone. Apart from this, you also get a 33 watt Flashcharged USB Type-C Quick Charger in the smartphone box.
