Vivo V20 series could launch next month with X50-like cameras

Vivo is reportedly going to launch the V20 series in India next month. According to a new report, the upcoming series will have three devices; V20, V20 SE, and V20 Pro. This launch will coincide with the festive season in the country. During this time, phone sales usually see a big jump. And after a muted affair till now, brands will be hoping for a positive response from consumers in the latter part of 2020.

Having three phones in the series will allow Vivo to start from a lower price point. So, while the basic V20 will pack mid-range specs, the other two could feature 5G chipset. And in addition to that, the report says, the series will pack Vivo X50-like camera setup. So, we’re hoping the new V20 phones gets Snapdragon 765G chipset, and the cameras get a periscope lens.

As you might know, Vivo launched the X50 series earlier this year. And the X50 Pro version carries the unique gimbal camera system. So, it’s possible the Pro version of V20 could also offer something similar for the users. Fair to say the V20 will be a major bump on its predecessor, the Vivo V19 that was available in two variants and priced up to Rs 28,000 in the market. But with the new additions to the V20 series, expect the phones to cost over Rs 30,000 when it launches.
