You know! We have come a long way in the smartphone department. Gone are the days a consumer had to spend a fortune to get his hands on a decent handset, thanks to the Chinese OEM, Xiaomi. The Beijing-based vendor has literally upped the specs to price ratio for other manufacturers to follow.
The companies with a history (Samsung, for example) had to step back in the budget segment in order to make room for Xiaomi. For making a comeback with their M series, Samsung increased the feature-set and decreased the price. Despite focusing on the offline market at first, Vivo followed the same path of Xiaomi with its U10 device. Guess what? The brand has just launched its successor.
Vivo U20 Goes Live with Snapdragon 675 and Triple Rear Camera Setup
To recall, Vivo U10 hit the market in September. Flaunting a 6.35-inches IPS LCD display with 720 x 1544 pixels resolution, it packs in Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset coupled with up to 64 GB RAM. Apparently, you can expand it up to 256 GB using an external SD card.
Cut to today, Vivo U20 comes with 6.53-inch full-HD+ display with a 90.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. In case you don’t know, Vivo phones run on a custom Android overlay named FuntouchOS. The dual SIM device has a Widevine L1 certification. Meaning, one can flawlessly play high-resolution videos from Prime Video and Netflix.
Under the hood, you can find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC doubled with up to 6 GB of RAM. The 64 GB internal storage is based on UFS 2.1 technology and you can expand it up to 256 GB by swapping in a memory card.
One of the enticing parts of Vivo U20 is its camera. As the title says, the phone packs in a triple rear camera setup featuring a 16-megapixel main camera with the Sony IMX499 sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. For selfies, it houses a 16-megapixel camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The phone has a 5000 mAh battery with support for 18W charging. A disappointing aspect of U20 is the micro USB port. The gadget enthusiasts are already enthralled by the idea of having a USB Type-C port.
As of now, you can’t buy the phone. It will only hit the market by November 28. The 4 GB+ 64 GB variant will cost you Rs. 10990 whereas the 6 GB version needs you to spend Rs. 11,990. You can buy it from Amazon and Vivo’s official e-shop. There are two color options available; Racing Black and Blaze Blue. And, you can get Rs. 1000 off on the prepaid purchase.
