Vivo, a Chinese smartphone brand, entered Pakistan back in July this year by introducing three of their budget smartphones. The brand was enormously welcomed by customers for pocket friendly price tags with their competitive specs smartphones. The recent news brings a little drift in Vivo’s strategy as they have now unveiled high-end devices in the market.

According to details Vivo has unveiled a duo of high-end smartphones that is Vivo X20 and X20 Plus. Although the new entrants do not meet the flagship specifications but will surely pave the way to the right track.


Both the devices share most part of the specs sheet with a little difference in display size as the X20 will bring a 6.01-inch display in your hands whereas the X20 Plus carries the larger 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display. However, both benefit from the 2:1 aspect ratio supporting Full HD+ (2160 x 1080) resolution, with a metal design that leaves minimal room for bezels on the front.

Likewise, in terms of OS, we see the Android 7.1.1 Nougat running on both the devices. There is an updated Snapdragon 660 processor from Qualcomm under the hood as well as 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal expandable storage.


Both the smartphones come with a dual camera setup on the back with a 12 MP (f/1.8 wide aperture) + 5 MP setup. The cameras on back are supported by an LED flash for night-time photography. There is a single 12 MP shooter with an f/2.0 aperture on the front making your selfie moments great.

Another difference lies with the battery capacity of the duo; the X20 is powered by a 3,245 mAh battery while the Plus version ups it to 3,905 mAh. However, there is no confirmation about the fast charging support at the moment.

Price and Availability

The Viva X20 and X20 Plus have been made available in Black, Gold and Rose Gold colour options in the Chinese market. It is expected to see the duo in Pakistan from early October this year.

As far as pricing is concerned, the Chinese market has seen a price tag of CNY 2,998 (~PKR 47,750) associated with the X20 and the elder sibling brings CNY 3,498 (~PKR 55,700) out of the box.
