V20 and V20 Pro
V20 and V20 Pro’s front cameras allow users to unlock a new world of selfie capabilities. The V20 features a 44MP Eye Autofocus front camera while the V20 Pro is fitted with the Eye Autofocus Dual Front Camera, which includes a 44MP Super Definition Main Camera and an 8MP Super Wide-Angle Camera. The main lens of the V20 and V20 Pro features Eye Autofocus (AF), which uses advanced algorithms to track and focus on moving selfie subjects. With the capability to sharpen photo and video quality for multi-person pictures and track mobile subjects, the feature is ideal for a wide range of user scenarios like taking vlogs or group selfies. Vlog quality is further enhanced through the Steadiface Selfie Video feature that stabilises the subject when shooting videos, through a face-focused algorithm that performs edge cropping in a targeted manner. These features reflect vivo’s deep understanding of common user problems when shooting photos and videos with a smartphone.
V20 and V20 Pro’s front cameras are also packed with a host of additional features — Slo-Mo Selfie Video, 4K Selfie Video, and Super Night Selfie that enhance selfie quality and empower users to capture life’s special moments. Meanwhile, the 64MP-8MP-2MP back camera setup features Super Night Mode on the main lens, which supports tripod shooting, wide-angle night scenes, and Stylish Night Filter, enabling users to capture stunning photos in low-light scenarios. The device also features Dual-View Video that allows the user to combine footage captured by the front and rear cameras, doubling their creativity prowess and twice the fun. V20 Pro’s 8MP Super Wide Camera offers a 105° (103.6° after correcting for distortion) Super Wide-Angle Selfie, and pairs with distortion-correction algorithm to create incredibly wide and natural-looking photos.
V20 and V20 Pro also sport an ultra-sleek and light design, packing vivo’s latest technological advancements in a new level of thinness and lightness. The V20 Pro measures 7.39mm thin and weighs only 170g, making it the slimmest 5G smartphone in the market. The V20 sits at just 7.38mm and 171g with an ultra-sleek design that gives users an ideal grip.
With AG Matte Glass adding a soft and delicate touch, as well as Dual Tone Step which stylishly mitigates the rear camera protrusion, V20 and V20 Pro complements the styles of trendy consumers and gives them an unforgettable lightweight hold. In Malaysia, the V20 comes Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody, while the V20 Pro will come in Midnight Jazz and Moonlight Sonata, encapsulating the unique hues of the skies that create colour symphonies and celebrate the beauty of nature.
V20 and V20 Pro is built as both a design accessory and a powerful computing tool for fast-moving users to complete their everyday tasks with their mobile. V20 and V20 Pro are powered by the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 720G processor and 765G processor respectively, delivering smooth performance for applications and games. A 4,000mAh (TYP) battery with vivo’s 33W FlashCharge technology brings solid durability and fast charging time, providing for a more convenient mobile experience and allowing users to record themselves and lighten their lives in more scenarios.
vivo has also incorporated its Funtouch OS 11 into the V20 series to satisfy user needs for a smooth and efficient operating system. Funtouch OS 11 features themes and edgy App icons which offers a refreshing look while being simple, efficient, and highly intuitive for users to interact with, all the while offering them a high-tech and elevated mobile user experience.
V20 will run on the recently launched Android 11 operating system, which will give users more convenient ways to manage conversations, device controls, privacy settings, and more. With Android 11, users will be able to see, respond to, and control their conversations across multiple messaging apps in one place and pin conversations to the top of other apps for better multitasking, making it easier for fast moving smartphone users to connect. Android 11 will also give users a one touch path to controlling connected devices, seamless switching with media output devices, and the Nearby Share feature to quickly send files, videos, map locations, and more to a nearby Android device. Depending on market conditions, vivo has a plan to equip each model in the V20 series with Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 11 in succession.
