When compared to one that launched in Pakistan, the handset has a bigger screen (6.58” vs 6.38”). However, Vivo has used LCD display instead of AMOLED panel. Similarly, there’s no in display fingerprint scanner. The display has waterdrop notch in which front camera is placed.
The handset comes in two different color options i.e., Titanium Sapphire and Crystal Symphony colors. It has a design familiar to the Vivo V20 but is slimmer and longer. However, the fingerprint sensor is located on the side.

Under the hood, the device packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC. It is a 11nm chipset which has eight cores and Adreno 610 GPU. It is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Snapdragon 665 is an old chipset. It is not a powerful chipset however; it can get the job done.
