The Vivo Y20i shares most of its specifications with the standard Y20, but comes with a couple of downgrades. Both Vivo Y20 and Y20i feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 SoC. The OPPO A53 which launched yesterday is the first Snapdragon 460-powered device in India.
The Vivo Y20 series feature a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, 5,000mAh battery, 13-megapixel triple rear cameras and more as their highlights. While Y20 will go on sale in India from August 28th, the Y20i will arrive on September 3rd.
