The main innovation in the new products was a screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, occupying 85-86% of the front panel of the smartphone (Vivo data). The diagonal of the screen in the younger model is 6.01 “, in the older one – 6.43”. The resolution is the same – 2160×1080 pixels. The all-metal case of smartphones is black, pink or golden.

The fingerprint scanner located on the back panel is just one of two ways of biometric identification in the Vivo X20 and X20 Plus. The second is face recognition. This function was called by the manufacturer Face Wake. Unlike Face ID from Apple, Vivo technology does not use any additional modules, it only needs a front camera. Most likely, this negatively affects the quality of face recognition.

The heart of the Vivo X20 and X20 Plus is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. It is complemented by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. Having installed a powerful stuffing, Vivo decided to supplement it with software for games. All together received the name Vivo Game Engine. This package includes the ability to open instant messengers and other applications, as well as a keyboard in floating windows on top of the game interface, without stopping its work. The game is also not paused in the case of an incoming call, until you pick up the phone.
