Vivo Y20 with a 6.51-inch screen, 5000mAh battery and a side fingerprint now available in Kenya

The much anticipated mid-ranger – vivo Y20 is now retailing in Kenya for Ksh. 13,999, which places it within the competitive under 15k device category. Vivo has been keen to capturing some of Kenya’s smartphone market despite it’s somewhat late entrance in the country. The phone maker has released several devices appealing to both the lower-end of midrange device category as well as in the top end arena. The phone is now retailing in Vivo Kenya brand stores as well as on e-commerce site Jumia.

There are a couple of upgrades on vivo’s latest device that ensure it has an optimal performance, matching it price tag in performance. It also comes with a sleek design that looks expensive than what actually the device cost. For those looking for a device worth taking some interesting shots for social media, vivo Y20 has an AI triple camera setup that should perform just fine with detailed photos. Vivo is now focusing more on producing handsets with a unique but loved design, and the latest Y20 falls inline with this vision according to the manufacturer.

According to Mr. James Irungu, vivo Smartphone Kenya Brand Manager, the company is aiming to enrich the Y-series lineup with devices that offer great features such as a better camera, large battery capacity that lasts longer, ample storage at a competitive price such as the Y20. Mr. Irungu further acknowledged the growing demand in youth centered devices that deliver great performance at competitive prices. He also said the company was committed to unveiling devices that were user friendly, rich in gaming features, a large battery as well as a stylish design.

The company paid a special emphasis on photography capabilities despite the rock-bottom price tag with a triple camera setup that consist of a 13MP primary sensor, a 2MP macro and a 2MP bokeh camera. the selfie sensor is maxed-out at 8MP with a large af/2.2 aperture as well as a PDAF technology (Phase Detection Autofocus) to seamlessly take shareable that are crisp and clear.

5000mAh battery capacity has almost become the preferred sweet spot by many, despite smartphones lacking behind in battery evolution, we are at least assured to last a day or two with this size of capacity. Vivo Y20 is equipped with AI power saving technology that guarantees up to 16 hours of online HD movie streaming or 11 hours of strenuous gaming action. Additionally, the handset supports 18w fast charging as well as OTG reverse charging for those who need it.
