Vivo Y20A: Device Overview:

The Vivo Y20A features a 6.51-inches IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20:9. This is a budget device, so the standard 60Hz is all you get with this phone. For processing power, we have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439, which is built on a 12nm manufacturing process. It is an octa-core processor that only uses the low-powered Cortex-A53 cores. We have four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.95 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.45 GHz.

In terms of optics, we have a triple camera setup at the back and a single camera at the front. We have a 13MP primary sensor paired with an f/1.8 lens, a 2MP depth sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens, and a 2MP macro sensor paired with an f/2.4 lens. As for the front, we have a single 8MP sensor paired with an f/1.8 lens. Both the camera setups are only limited to 1080p video recording. We get only Android 10 out of the box, but an update to Android 11 is imminent.

We have only a single storage and RAM variant of the smartphone with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. In terms of connectivity, we have Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and MicroUSB 2.0. As for the sensors, we have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and compass. Powering all of this is a 5000 mAh battery with support for standard 10W charging. This is a budget smartphone, and the lack of quick charging is obvious in a tight budget. The Vivo Y20A is available in two color options: Dawn White and Nebula Blue.

Will Vivo Y20A Receive the Android 11 Update?

Updated on April 5, 2021: Today Vivo rolled the March April 2021 security patch for the device with software version PD2060F_EX_A_1.72.3 based on Android 10.

Vivo Y20A was launched in the year 2020 with Android 10 and FuntouchOS 11. This was an entry-level smartphone. Just like the flagship, we expect the Vivo to roll the next Android 11 update to the device based on OriginOS UI which is the successor of Funtouch UI 10.
