vivo’s V20 2021 has been leaking quite a lot lately, so we were expecting it to become official pretty soon. Amazon India, however, took us by surprise by listing the phone – and it’s in stock and ready to order – without even a hint of an official announcement from vivo.
Still, we’ll take it. So, without further ado, let’s see what the V20 2021 is all about. You can get it in two colors, Sunset Melody and Midnight Jazz. It has a 6.44-inch 1080×2400 touchscreen, a triple rear camera setup (64 MP main + 8 MP ultrawide + 2 MP “mono”), a 44 MP selfie snapper with autofocus (from 15cm to infinity), the Snapdragon 730G chipset at the helm, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 4,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging. It runs Android 11 with Funtouch 11 on top.
Basically the only difference between this model and the V20 that we’ve already reviewed is in the chipset, the 2021 model gets the 730G, whereas the vanilla V20 has the 720G. That’s not a huge difference given how similar those SoCs are in day to day use, but it’s there, for what it’s worth. Looks-wise, the two are identical however.
If you want to purchase a vivo V20 2021 in India, you’ll need to pay INR 24,990 for the privilege, at least over at Amazon.
