If everything goes well, Vovi V20 series will be the first smartphone to have the latest Android 11 out-of-the-box. Yes, you read it right!
Starting October 12th, Vivo V20 is all set to become the first handset to Android 11 pre-installed. Generally, Google Pixel handsets are the first ones to have the latest Android out-of-the-box.
The First Non-Pixel Phone to Make a Mark!
However, this could change this year with the launch of Vivo V20 in the Indian market. The latest press release by Vivo revealed that the new Vivo V20 series would pack the latest Android. The FunTouch OS 11 is based on the latest Android 11.
The statement also quoted that depending on market conditions, VIVO has a plan to equip V20 series with Android 11 in succession.
With this, for the first-time a non-Pixel smartphone will deliver a true Android 11 experience. The Pixel phones including Google Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G will hit the US market on October 15th. On the other hand, Vivo V20 will be launched on October 12th.
This is to be noted that Vivo V20 is already in the Indonesian (Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand) market. The global launch is yet to come. However, one can see that the handset is listed both on Vivo India and Global sites.
The other USP of Vivo V20 series is it being ultra-thin with a 7.38mm trendy slim design.
Vivo V20 Specifications:
The Vivo V20 sports a 6.35-inch AMOLED touchscreen with 1080x2400 pixels resolution (409ppi density). Powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 720G chipset, 8GB RAM and Adreno 618 GPU, the new Vivo V20 series would have 128GB internal storage space.
Known for triple-camera-system, the phone packs 64mp primary shooter (wide), 8mp secondary lens (ultra-wide), and 2mp monochrome sensor (depth). For selfie lovers, it is equipped with 44mp f/2.0 aperture front camera.
Backed by 4000mAh battery and 33W fast-charging, the handset comes in 3 colours including Moonlight Sonata, Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody.
Vivo V20 Series 3 Variants:
The Global site of Vivo mentioned that there would be 3 smartphones under Vivo V20 series – the Vivo V20 Pro, Vivo V20 and Vivo V20 SE. Though the Flipkart is a sales partner of Vivo V20 series, one can expect them to be in offline mode as well.
It’s exciting to wait and watch how Vivo differentiates its Vivo V20 series.
