Assuming the same variant that will be launching in India next month — we can expect a 6.44-inches Full HD+ AMOLED display as we have seen on the recent Vivo S20 smartphone. Both the Vivo V20 and the upcoming Vivo V20 Pro typically share identical specs and design on paper.

Under the hood, the Vivo V20 Pro equips Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G chipset. The chipset is built on a 7nm process and supports 5G networks. This evidently makes Vivo V20 Pro the first mid-range 5G phone to launch in this country. The device features 8GB of RAM with 128GB of onboard storage. It has a decent 4000mAh battery underneath, which further supports Vivo’s 33W fast charging tech. On the software front, it ships with Funtouch OS 11. For those unaware, Vivo has recently launched a new Android Skin called OriginOS.

Further, there’s one 8MP wide-angle camera alongside a 2MP monochrome sensor. On the front, the Vivo V20 Pro carries dual selfie shooters, unlike the solo selfie camera featured on the Vivo V20.

The wide-angle camera here supports a 105-degree field of view.
