Vivo launches another U series phone in India in the form of U20 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675. The previous phone, U10 with Snapdragon 665 was just launched at the end of September ahead of Diwali festive season. The new model brings a lot of improvements over the former one at a bit higher price tag and will be sold on Amazon.
The Vivo U20 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 and comes in two storage variants – 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 64GB priced at ₹10,990 ($155) and ₹11,990 ($170) respectively. Interestingly, the company has opted for UFS 2.1 storage for better read/write speeds. Also, the storage can be further expanded via a dedicated microSD card slot. Further, the front of the phone is equipped with a 6.3-inch FHD+(1080 x 2340 pixels) LCD panel with a dew-drop notch at the top housing a 16MP selfie camera. The phone also comes with Widevine L1 certification to play high-resolution content on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime.
