Announcement of Vivo Y20T: an inexpensive smartphone on Qualcomm Snapdragon 662

The Chinese company Vivo quietly announced a new representative of its Vivo Y series of smartphones. The new product, called the Vivo Y20T, debuted in India and is in many ways similar to the previously released Vivo Y20.

Unlike its predecessor, the Vivo Y20, which was based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chip, the new smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor, which has 6 GB of RAM. For data storage, a built-in 64 GB drive is allocated with the possibility of expanding using a microSD memory card.

The front panel of the Vivo Y20T has a 6.51-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels (HD +) and a U-notch for the front camera, which has a resolution of 8 megapixels. On the back is a triple main camera with a 13MP main sensor paired with two 2MP modules, one of which acts as a macro camera and the other as a depth sensor for portraits. Everything is controlled by the mobile operating system Android 11 with the proprietary shell Funtouch OS 11.1 installed on top. And the smartphone is powered by a 5000 mAh rechargeable battery with 18 W fast charging function via a USB Type-C port. Other features of the novelty include a separate 3.5 mm audio jack for connecting headphones, a game mode and a fingerprint scanner built into the side power button.

The first country to start selling Vivo Y20T is India. There, it is already available for ordering from local online stores such as Flipkart. The price of the issue is 15 490 rupees, or about 14 800 rubles at the current rate for the version with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.
