The flagship Vivo phone was unveiled alongside Vivo V20 at an event in Thailand in September. Key highlights of Vivo V20 Pro include dual selfie cameras, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, and 33W fast charging support. The smartphone also comes preloaded with a list of camera-focussed features that include Dual-View Video, Slo-Mo Selfie Video, Super Night Mode, and Motion Autofocus, among others.
As per a ‘block your date' invite sent to the media, the Vivo V20 Pro India launch will be held on December 2. The company is likely to host a virtual event to announce the arrival of the new phone.
