A couple of months back, Vivo unveiled its first “U” series device in India named Vivo U10 with impressive features for a starting price of Rs 8,990 like Snapdragon 665 SOC, a 5,000mAh battery, 18W Fast Charging, etc. Today, Vivo U20 launched in India & as the name suggests, it is the upgraded version of the U10 & hence comes with better specs.
At a starting price of Rs 10,990, the U20 offers Snapdragon 675 SOC, a 5,000mAH battery, 18W Fast Charging & triple cameras.
VIVO U20 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The design doesn’t seem to be changed compared to the Vivo U10’s design. So, there is the same display with a waterdrop notch on top & a noticeable bottom chin and a vertically placed camera setup on the rear alongside a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.
The only difference is that this time, the three cameras & the LED flash are placed in a single module, unlike the Vivo U10, where the LED flash is placed outside the camera module.
With companies now going for USB Type-C port on even the entry-level phones (Redmi is an example), the Vivo U12 has a micro-USB port on the bottom. The port has a 3.5mm headphone jack on one side & speaker grill on the other. While the back seems to be made of glass, it is actually glossy plastic.
But that’s not a big issue considering that plastic is more durable & it ensures that the weight of the device is less even if there is a massive battery inside.
On the front, the Vivo U20 features a 6.53-inch Full-HD+ display (2340 x 1080 pixels) & it is an LCD panel. There is no mention of any Gorilla Glass protection on top of the display panel, so we don’t think there is any Gorilla Glass protection. Under the hood, the U20 is powered by an octa-core 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SOC along with 4/6GB RAM & 64GB internal storage.
It is worth mentioning that the storage is UFS 2.1 instead of eMMC, so that’s a massive advantage over phones in this segment with the eMMC storage.
Coming to the cameras on the Vivo U20, there is a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 16 Megapixel unit with a Sony IMX499 sensor & f/1.78 aperture, a secondary 8 Megapixel Ultra-Wide-Angle camera with 120-degree FOV & a third 2 Megapixel Super Macro lens. There is a 16 Megapixel front-facing camera.
The battery is also the highlight of U20 as there is a massive 5,000mAh unit & the phone supports 18W Fast Charging as well. Funtouch OS 9.2 runs out of the box based on Android 9 Pie.

The Vivo U20 comes in two colors – Racing Black and Blaze Blue. There are two storage options & here is the pricing for the Indian market –
