This phone has a 6.51″ IPS LCD screen with HD+ resolution at a 20:9 aspect ratio. The company is calling it Halo FullView display. There is a notch at the top which hosts the 8 MP selfie camera. On the inside, Vivo Y20 has a new Snapdragon 460 processor, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB internal storage. The Snapdragon 460 is a new, improved chipset and gives better performance compared to SD450. It has Qualcomm Fast Connect 6100, Andreno 610 GPU, WiFi 6, and LTE Category 13 for downlink and uplink. Vivo Y20 has a 5000 mAH battery with 18W fast charging. This is a fair amount of battery power for a phone of this size and price range.
The front side of Vivo Y20 has one 8 MP camera that can take 1080p videos. The backside of this phone comes with three cameras and a flash. Main camera is a 13 MP wide-angle sensor, the second one is 2 MP macro sensor, and the third one is a 2 MP depth-sensing camera. This rear camera setup can take videos at 1920×1080 resolution at 30 fps. The macro camera helps to take photos of closeup subjects at a distance of 4cm. There is also a 2 MP bokeh camera that takes depth details for portrait shots. The camera software has features like Face Beauty and Portrait Light effects. There are modes like Panorama, Live Photo, Slow motion, timelapse, and Pro Mode.
All three camera modules are placed in vertical alignment on the back with a LED flash. This is a common design practice these days. One thing to notice is that many companies are using a Macro camera these days. They are good for close shots of small objects. But we feel that for normal users and regular use, ultrawide camera and telephoto are very useful. They help us to take better photos, videos, and overall good results. We suggest companies put those because for educated and enthusiast users in a budget, ultrawide and telephone sensors make a lot of sense.
