From the front, the Vivo V20 SE looks identical to its bigger brother V20, sporting the same 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. Fueling the device is Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, a rather odd choice for a mid-ranger at this price, especially in a market with several competitors offering much better chipsets at similar price points. For what it’s worth, the chipset is paired with a generous 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage along with microSD card support.

In the imaging department, the phone flaunts triple rear cameras on the back, consisting of a 48MP f/1.8 primary sensor, 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, there’s a 32MP f/2.0 camera on the front with support for Vivo’s Super Night mode for better low-light photos.

The Vivo V20 SE is powered by a 4,100 mAh battery and comes with a 33W FlashCharge fast charger, which the company claims can charge the battery from 0% to 62% within 30 minutes. Other highlights of the device include an in-display fingerprint sensor, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, USB Type C, micro SD card support, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The Vivo V20 SE comes running Android 10 out-of-the-box with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 11 on top.

Save for the chipset, the overall hardware on offer is decent for the price, but whether it will be enough to take on the seasoned competitors such as the POCO X3 and Realme 7 Pro remains to be seen.

Pricing & Availability

The Vivo V20 SE is priced at ₹20,990 (~$282) for the 8GB/128GB variant and will go on sale in India starting November 3. The device comes in two colors: Aquamarine Green and Gravity Black and will be available from offline and online partners. For online buyers, Vivo is offering a 1-time screen replacement, extra ₹2000 off on exchange, and no-cost EMI up to 12 months.
