Vivo jumped on the right train with the Y20G!

Vivo has been launching quite a few phones in the recent past and most of them have been following a similar trend of almost integrating the same or maybe a few upgraded versions of the features however this time around, Vivo made a swift and might I add, the right turn in terms of bringing in a major change.

Vivo launched the Y20G phone and it came as quite a surprise for one particular reason if not anything else. Personally. It was a good surprise. Vivo Y20G comes powered with MediaTek Helio G80 gaming chipset. And this is the correct turn that the brand took. This is the first ever phone by Vivo to be powered by a MediaTek gaming chipset.

Let’s take a quick look into the features and the specifications of the phone first.

The phone is available in two variants, 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage for 13K in India and the other one the one with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage for the price for 15K.

As mentioned before, it packs the octa-core MediaTek Helio G80 SoC clocked at 2GHz and comes in the above-mentioned RAM and ROM variants.

It supports dual-SIM cards (Nano) and run on Android 11-based Funtouch OS 11 out of the box.

Its rear camera module looks exactly the same as that of the vanilla Vivo Y20. The rear camera setup includes a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture and two 2-megapixel cameras with f/2.4 aperture, each. For selfies, there’s an 8-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture. The camera app comes pre-loaded with modes such as portrait, panorama, live photo, slo-mo, time-lapse, and more

Other notable features on the Vivo Y20G include dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5.0, 4G LTE, GPS, and fingerprint scanner. It packs a 5,000mAh that supports 18W fast charging via micro-USB port.

There are two color variants available for the Vivo Y20G; Obsidian Black and Purist Blue colour options for the phone. Personally, the Obsidian Black looks good and has a sophisticated touch to it.

Overall, based on the features and the specifications, I would say Vivo has brought in a solid and strong gaming phone to the segment and it definitely stands as a strong competitor for the rest. In terms of the price as well, the brand has made sure to make it affordable for all without cutting corners on the features and ensuring the best of overall performance.
