The vivo V20 family was introduced last week in Thailand, but today the new lineup are finally available for sale, hitting Southeast Asia and becoming the first phones in the world to ship with Android 11, out of the box.
The family includes three phones – vivo V20 SE, vivo V20 Pro, and vivo V20. The initial announcements revealed all the specs of the first two, but the specs of the vanilla variant has just been announced.
The vivo V20 is powered by the Snapdragon 720G, coupled with an 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, the latter expandable via a dedicated micro SD slot.
At the front, there’s a 6.44-inch OLED panel with a fingerprint scanner underneath. The waterdrop notch in the front houses a 44MP selfie camera with f/2.0 lens.
The rear camera setup borrows the design from the vivo X50 Pro, but not the actual modules. Instead, vivo V20 offers a 64MP f/1.9 main camera and an 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide snapper that offers autofocus so it can also be used for macro shots. A 2MP mono UNIT completes the tally.
The battery inside the vivo V20 has 4,000 mAh capacity and comes with 33W fast-charging.
