Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 460 SoC earlier this year in January, alongside two other mid-range chips — the Snapdragon 720G and Snapdragon 662. Android OEMs have already launched Snapdragon 720G and Snapdragon 662 powered devices, but the budget-friendly Snapdragon 460 chip hasn’t made its way to many devices so far. The chipset made its debut appearance with the new OPPO A53 in India yesterday and now sister company Vivo has launched the affordable Vivo Y20 series, featuring the Snapdragon 460.

The devices pack in a substantial 5,000mAh battery with 18W FlashCharge support only on the Vivo Y20. Both the devices run Vivo’s custom Funtouch OS 10.5 Andriod skin based on Android 10.
