Vivo V20 series of smartphones has officially been confirmed by the company to launch in India. The company's India Twitter handle has posted a short teaser video, hinting at the phones' imminent launch in the country. A promotional page for the Vivo V20 was also spotted on the Flipkart app, hinting at its availability on the e-commerce platform soon. It was earlier reported that the Vivo V20 series is expected to be launched in the country on October 12. The Vivo V20 series comprises three models – Vivo V20, Vivo V20 SE, and Vivo V20 Pro. The Vivo V20 SE and the Vivo V20 Pro has already been launched earlier this month in Malaysia and Thailand, respectively. Not many details have been revealed around the vanilla Vivo V20 but it is likely to share a number of specifications with the Pro model.
Vivo tweeted a short teaser video of the upcoming phones through its India handle (@Vivo_India). The post hints at the phones' ultra-slim design and doesn't reveal much else. The cover photo on the Twitter profile page highlights the upcoming series, offering a glimpse into its three expected colour options – black, white, and a blue-purple gradient hue.
The Vivo V20 series has also been listed on the Vivo India website. It teases the impressive camera features of the upcoming phones and allows interested customers to sign up for updates.
The Vivo V20 has been listed in a promotional page on the Flipkart app. While it doesn't reveal any details on the launch date or the pricing in India, it does feature a ‘Notify Me' button for updates. The Vivo V20 series is also expected to be available for purchase via offline partner retail stores.
An earlier report claimed that the Vivo V20 series will launch in India on October 12. However, it should be noted that only two of the three smartphone models in the series are expected to be launched in the country, according to the report.
No release date or pricing details have officially been announced by Vivo.
