Vivo smartphone has announced plans to bring the Y20 in Kenya, beefing up its mid-tier offering in the country. The handset will be available in Kenya starting 8th October 2020 and packs some fine features such as a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and a triple rear camera setup. The company says the Y20 is aimed at the youth and has some features which are expected to delight users within this group.
An official statement from the company indicates the Y20 will pack some attractive features including an AI triple camera setup that has sensors supporting bokeh and macro photography expected to boost photos snapped on the phone as well as a large 5000mAh battery capacity that should last up to 16 hours of online HD movie streaming on a single charge – thanks to its power-saving technology. Users will also get up to 11 hours of resource intensive gaming on a single charge, meaning it should last a full day under normal use.
Vivo Y20 comes with a polished design and a large 6.51-inch display panel – the company refers to as a Halo Display. The panel’s resolution maxes out at 1600×720 HD+ which might not be at par with expensive devices but enough to impress consumers within the mid-tier range. Something we’ve come to like about a side mounted sensor is the simplicity and ability to reach without having to raise or turn your phone. I’m sure lots of consumers will appreciate the placement, given that most devices nowadays opt for a rear sensor instead.
While the pricing and availability in Kenya are still unknown, we expect Vivo to stick with its price structure. The handset will be available in two colors and more details will be added as the launch day approaches.
