Vivo managed to beat the Google Pixel 5 to the podium, as it became the first OEM to launch a smartphone with Android 11 out of the box with the launch of the Vivo V20. The smartphone made its way to India too, and now, Vivo is bringing the Vivo V20 Pro to the country, a phone whose selfie prowess we have already witnessed in our selfie camera tests.

The highlight of the Vivo V20 Pro are three fold — it comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, which is one of the better SoCs around for a mix of performance and price; it claims to be the thinnest 5G smartphone in the segment; and it has a powerful front camera setup. This combination makes the device an ideal choice for users who focus on content creation with the front camera, which can range from influencers to other content creators who need a good front camera for their daily needs. The 44MP “Eye Autofocus” camera actually produces results that justify the marketing around it. In our testing, we found the Vivo V20 Pro to produce sharper, better lit, and better-balanced selfies than other competing phones such as the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and the iPhone 11 Pro. The front camera also enables features such as 4K video recording at 60fps, and slow-motion selfie videos.

The rest of the package is also decent. The Snapdragon 765G is a tried-and-tested formula at this stage, and the 6.44″ FHD+ AMOLED display should work well for most users. The rear camera also has good specifications, though one can always argue on the practical utility of 2MP auxiliary camera sensors. The battery is a decent 4000 mAh despite the thin profile of the phone, and the 33W FlashCharge fast charging can get you from 0-60% in 30 minutes.

The Vivo V20 Pro will be available in India in Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody colors, and in a single 8GB + 128GB configuration for ₹29,990 (~$407).
