A few weeks after launching the Vivo V7+ smartphone with a 6 inch, 1440 x 720 pixel display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, Vivo is back, and this time the company’s got two new phones with higher-resolution screens and faster processors.
The Vivo X20 is a 6 inch phone with a Snapdragon 660 chip and 2160 x 1080 pixel AMOLED display, while the Vivo X20 Plus has a 6.4 inch screen (with the same resolution).
The new phones should be available in India soon for about $450 and up.
Both models feature 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint sensor on the back, and both feature 24MP front-facing cameras and a dual camera system on the back with 24MP + 5MP cameras.
But you only get optical image stabilization on the larger Vivo X20 Plus. And the Plus model also has a bigger battery (3,905 mAh vs 3,245 mAh for the Vivo X20).
Vivo will sell the X20 with 64GB for about Rs 30,000 ($460). A 128GB model will set you back Rs 34,000 ($520). And the Vivo X20 Plus with 64GB of storage goes for Rs 35,000 ($540).
Each model also has a microSD card slot.
It’s unlikely these phones will be available in the US anytime soon, but at a time when Apple, Samsung, and Google are selling phones with for as much as $1,000, it’s always fun to see what smaller companies are doing with mid-range phones for the international market.
