Vivo V20 2021 launches in India, replaces two-month-old Vivo V20 (2020)

Vivo has silently refreshed its Vivo V series in India with the launch of the Vivo V20 2021, a follow up to the Vivo V20 (2020) that launched just two months ago. As expected there aren’t many major hardware upgrades to talk about here, with the only major change being the new Snapdragon 730G chipset. But beyond that, the new phone is identical to the last model in every respect.
