Vivo X20 Launch Set for September 21, Specifications Leak


  • The handset has previously been leaked in posters
  • The Vivo X20 has been tipped to be powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC
  • Vivo X20 will feature near bezel-less design

Vivo X20 smartphone, which was recently spotted in a FIFA World Cup 2018 poster, is now scheduled for a launch on September 21 as the company has reportedly started sending out invites for the event. Separately, some of the specifications of the smartphone have also been leaked and suggested that it will come with Snapdragon 660 SoC.

First talking about the launch invite, shared by Android Pure, the image suggests that the handset will feature the same near bezel-less design as could be seen in earlier leaks. As pointed out in the report, the TENAA listing of the smartphone with model numbers Vivo X20 and X20A shows the dual camera setup in the same orientation as the iPhone 7 Plus and the fingerprint sensor at the back as well.

Interestingly, the specifications of the smartphone have also been leaked through a live image of the smartphone, shared on Chinese microblogging website Weibo, which suggests that the Vivo X20 smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 660 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz. This key aspect of the specification also differentiates the smartphone from Vivo V7+, which was earlier thought to be the same handset with different branding. The Vivo V7+ notably comes with Snapdragon 450 SoC.

Apart from the processor, the leaked live image has also indicated that the Vivo X20 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. To recall, as per previous leaks, the Vivo X20 and X20 Plus are expected to sport 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) displays respectively. The smartphones have been said to pack 6GB of RAM and house 3500mAh batteries.

In terms of optics, the Vivo X20 and X20 Plus smartphones are expected to come with 24-megapixel front cameras. The report also mentions that the Vivo X20 might feature in-screen fingerprint scanner, which was demonstrated by Vivo at Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017. However, this particular aspect of the leak might very well be untrue considering how new the technology is. Lastly, the smartphones have been tipped to come with 128GB of built-in storage.
