The Vivo V20 goes by a different name, and the company has taken a new approach to design. The new V20 is slimmer than the Vivo V19. It has a waterdrop screen. You might think it is designed inspired by the Vivo X50 series, with a stepped design for the camera module. The V20 has a triple camera setup with the main camera at the top and the other two just below. However, unlike the Vivo X50 Pro, there is no gimbal stabilization system here. The camera module has a silver accent, which looks premium.
