When is the Vivo V20 release date?

The three phones – the V20, V20 Pro, and V20 SE – are out now in several southeast Asian countries including India, but the global rollout has been slower. The V20 series was actually originally announced at a European event, suggesting that the phones will eventually arrive in at least some European markets. We don’t know which or when though.

How much does the V20 series cost?

We don't have European pricing for the V20 phones yet, but here are estimates for the UK based on the Asian prices:

  • V20 SE: about £200
  • V20: about £250
  • V20 Pro: about £350

Bear in mind that if the phones do come to Europe, we would expect prices to rise for the European market – so if you’re tempted to buy a V20 then importing now might be a cheaper option.

Vivo V20 specs & design

The V20 is the main phone in the range. It boasts a slick design that’s reminiscent of the X50, but smaller, slimmer, and simplified. The specs are led by the 64Mp main camera and 44Mp selfie lens, but there’s plenty else to like here.

Vivo V20 Pro specs & design

In case the name doesn’t give it away, the V20 Pro is the beefier big brother of the V20 – though it’s actually technically fractionally smaller.

The main differences are a faster processor in the Snapdragon 765G, which in turn enables 5G support, and an additional 8Mp wide-angle selfie camera. Surprisingly the V20 Pro only ships with Android 10, but will presumably get an update to Android 11 not long after launch.

Vivo V20 SE specs & design

Then there’s the SE, which is the cheap-and-cheerful take on the line. The design is a little different, with a long oblong camera module rather than the boxy version seen on the other two phones, and it also comes in different colours, and drops specs on both the processor and camera module.
