Vivo Quietly Launches the Vivo V20 2021 With New Features and Major Upgrade

The Vivo V20 2021 has sneakily snuck up to the market counters in India when it was stopped on online shopping sites and physical stores recently. Before this, the company lived on in rumors setting speculations of its advent ablaze. 

However, recently it had a super quiet launch in October and is supposedly an upgrade over the previous V20. The design and looks of it are pretty similar to its predecessor, but there’s a lot to expect on the software and SoC front.

The smartphone flaunts an 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and has an affordable price tag of Rs, 24,999. This is around the same price range that its predecessor was launched back in October, making it a popular holiday haul for the masses.

Presently, the smartphone can be availed of Amazon, however, it isn’t quite sure yet whether it will be put up for sale on other sites or not. Its sales might just remain exclusive to Amazon or expand, but they are yet to be confirmed. 

The smartphone is available in two color variants, Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody. There hasn’t been any further news yet of any higher-end variants for the same, such as a 12 GB RAM or a 256 GB storage, but we’re hoping to gather news on that front soon. 

Amazon has listed the detailed specifications of the Vivo V20 2021 phone and turns out that it is a dual sim phone just like its predecessor. It’s OS is powered by the Android 11with Funtouch OS 11. 

It also flaunts a screen display of 6.44 inches, which happens to be a Full HD one. On top of that, its pixel density is of 1,080×2,400 pixels and has a 20:9 aspect ratio. The succeeding smartphone runs on the octa-core  Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G SoC, contrary to its predecessor that runs on the  Snapdragon 720G SoC. 

For the time being, the phone has only one RAM coupled with an internal storage variant, that being 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. However, the storage is expandable up to 1TB which can be easily achieved by using a micro SD card. 

As for the camera, the Vivo V20 2021 flexes a triple camera set up, the primary lens being of 64 megapixels, a super-wide angle secondary lens of 8 megapixels, and a mono sensor of 2 megapixels. 

The front camera is 44 megapixels, which is quite high than most other premium smartphones offer these days. The front camera also has an autofocus lens.

As for the communications and connections part, the phone supports 4G connectivity with the Voice Over LTE feature. It has a USB-C type port for charging and also supports Wi-Fi connectivity. 

It also has a battery capacity of 4,000 mAh and supports fast charging of 33 W. On the weight front, it weighs similar to its predecessor, that is 171 grams. Basically, the hardware features are more or else intact, but the SoC and software features along with the camera have undergone a major transition. 

If this mid-range, affordable phone packed with features is something you’re eyeing this holiday, we’d say go for it!
