Vivo X20 and X20 Plus With ‘Face Wake’ ID and Full View Display Launched

0

Vivo on Thursday has unveiled the high-end Vivo X20 and Vivo X20 Plus smartphones in China. The smartphones are being rumored from last couple of months and expected to launch with on-screen fingerprint scanner, but the company launched the two devices with a Face Wake facial recognition technology for unlocking the device along with a back-mounted square shaped fingerprint scanner.

Design and Features

Apart from Face Wake facial recognition technology, other highlights of the devices are dual-rear camera setup and Full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The main difference difference between the two variants is in the screen size and the battery capacity. The Vivo X20 sports a 6.01” Super AMOLED display, while the X20 Plus comes with a slightly larger 6.43” Super AMOLED display. The Vivo X20 also comes with an AK4376A audio chip for offering Hi-Fi sound output and the Vivo X20 Plus features ES9318 chip.

Design wise both these new devices look similar to the Vivo V7 Plus, recently launched in India. The only difference V7 Plus sports a single rear camera. The smartphones come with a uni-body metal design and the slight curve on the rear offers nice grip to hold. The Vivo X20 and X20 Plus have been launched in Matte Black, Gold, and Rose Gold colour options.

Pricing and Availability

The Vivo X20 comes with a price tag of 2998 Yuan (Rs 29,500 approx.) and 3398 Yuan (Rs 33,500 approx.) for 64GB and 128GB variants respectively. The Vivo X20 Plus is priced at 3498 Yuan (Rs 34,500 approx.) Both the smartphones will be up for pre-orders starting Monday, September 25 and can be purchased from September 30. As usual with vivo devices, it’s unclear if or when they will be officially sold outside of China.
