When it comes to aesthetics, its safe to say that vivo knows what its doing. The vivo V20 Pro is no exception. It is a beautiful smartphone with a sleek modern design with an eye-catching color to boot. We have the Sunset Melody variant and it is a stunner.
The V20 Pro is slim phone, measuring in at 158.82 x 74.20 with a thickness of just 7.38 mm and weight of 170 g. The back AG Matte Glass is stunning. Vivo says it used chemical etching to further refine the surface. It has a coating that is resistant to scratches and fingerprints.
At the front is a 6.44-inch full HD+ AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 20:9 aspect ratio. It has punchy colors and deep blacks with a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Its sharp too with 408ppi.
All controls are on the right side. The volume keys and power button are slightly raised from the center of the side panel. At the bottom, there’s the SIM tray, the primary mic, the USB-C port, and the mono speaker. And yes, they skipped the headphone jack, which is unfortunate. There’s also a secondary mic at top.
As for its cameras, the phone has a 64MP main, an 8MP ultra-wide, and 2MP monochrom nestled on a rectangular module, slightly raised from the surface. It has an industrial aesthetic with a combination of black and silver. While in front, there’s a notch holding the dual selfie setup with 44MP and 8MP sensors.
