In a sign of an impending launch date the VIVO X20 today surfaced on the TENAA website. TENAA is China’s certification board in the vein of America’s FCC.
The leaked images give us our first official glimpse at the X20 and what we can expect from it.
From the above image(s) it is easy to make out that the smartphone looks quite like the OPPO R11 range. The OPPO mid-rangers themselves heavily borrowed from the Apple iPhone 7 series devices. This is markedly noticeable in the placement of the dual cameras in the top left corner and the seamless curved radio antennas at the top and bottom. The only deviation from the iPhone design is the positioning of the fingerprint scanner at the back above the brand logo.
Flip the phone over and it is a similar story, the display does not have much in the way of bezels. Apart from this, the VIVO X20 features a contemporary all-metal unibody design with rather spartan detailing on the sides. The right side houses the volume rocker and power button while the left side has the SIM tray.
Internally the X20 range is allegedly powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 6xx series chipsets. These are complemented by 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The display on the handset is rumoured to be a 5.2-inch Full-HD plus resolution panel with a “tall” ≥ 18:9 aspect ratio. Out of the box, the smartphone is to run on Android v.7.x, Nougat likely under the company’s proprietary Funtouch OS. According to TENAA, the X20 supports various LTE bands, CDMA and GSM standards and will be a dual-SIM, dual-standby device.
