vivo’s latest smartphone, the Y20, has been launched in Kenya.
The device, announced globally over 2 months ago, targets the entry-level market that has for long been dominated by other Chinese brands. vivo has, in the past year, tried to chip away at that market with 4 other Y-series smartphones that it has availed in the Kenyan market since its debut.
As we had noted earlier when we got wind of the impending launch, “The vivo Y20 features a 6.51-inch HD+ “Halo Display” in a 20:9 aspect ratio, a 5,000mAh battery that vivo says can go for 11 hours when one is gaming, an AI triple camera setup with macro and bokeh lenses as well as “advanced selfie features”.”
“The device arrives running version 10.5 of vivo’s custom take on Android 10, FunTouch OS, and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 460. It has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor (embedded in the power button) and supports 18W fast-charging.”
The smartphone, which vivo is describing as “lightweight, sleek, and perfectly polished” comes in Obsidian Black and Nebula Blue colours.
It is available online through Jumia Kenya as well as via offline channels across the country.
The device is going for Kshs 14,000. That is Kshs 3,000 less than the price of the vivo Y30, the other available option from the brand.
