Vivo V20 SE Specifications: Overview

The Vivo V20 SE comes with a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display which makes it similar in size to the Pro and the standard variant. It comes with a standard 60 Hz refresh rate along with a waterdrop notch at the top. Under the hood, we get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 665, which is a decent performer when it comes to mid-range devices. There is only a single storage variant though, with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. This storage is expandable as we do get a MicroSD slot on the phone.

At the back, we get a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots and bokeh effects. At the front in the waterdrop notch, we get a 32MP selfie camera. The front and back cameras on this device are only capable of shooting 1080p videos @30fps, which is low for a phone at this price segment. Then in terms of battery, we get a 4,100 mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging. Vivo claims that the device goes from 0 to 62% in just 30 minutes using the 33W fast charger.

In terms of color variants, Vivo has kept it quite simple with Gravity Black and Oxygen Blue as the two variants. And for pricing, this device is expected to come at around 250 Euro, which roughly translates to about 22,000 INR. This is like a toned-down version of the Pro and the standard V20.
