In the first week of January, Vivo launched a new budget device. This smartphone does not offer much in terms of specifications, but most people in 2021 don’t have much to spare. So they are aiming at the budget segment with the new Vivo Y20A. Budget devices, if sold in high quantities, can also change the tide for a company significantly.
Well, the device came out of the box with Android 10 and promised to get a regular software update and security patch. However, it’s not a new case when some of the users haven’t received the latest firmware OTA update notification. Meanwhile, some of the Vivo Y20A owners also look for the stock ROM to install mostly. On this page, we will share all the latest Vivo Y20A software update details track.
As mentioned, the firmware OTA updates always rollout in batches region-wise which also depends on the server and carriers. So, it’s one of the common issues to not receive any OTA update notification. Therefore, some of the keen users may also miss out on the important or much-awaited updates in some cases. Now, if you also feel the same and have a doubt in mind that you’ve missed out on any important update or you want to manually install the stock firmware on your Vivo Y20A model, then the update tracker list with the software update guide will help you a lot.
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.
