Commenting on the launch of the all-new Vivo V20, Nipun Marya, Director Brand Strategy, Vivo India, said, “The all-new V20 is yet another effort from Vivo to provide a strong, well-rounded smartphone that not only provides exceptional front- camera performance but becomes a benchmark in smartphone design. The 44MP Eye Autofocus feature paired with the eye-autofocus algorithm promises to bring clear front camera pictures and videos to the users. With its ultra slim design and power-packed camera performance, we are hopeful that this latest addition to the Vivo V series range will excite the Indian consumers to delightfully capture every moment.” He further added, “We at Vivo believe it is pivotal that we lay immense focus and commitment towards making our phones resonate with the consumers and their evolving needs. With the rise of content creation platforms and the popularity they are getting from the Indian audience, we at Vivo realize the importance of self-expression via video. As video selfies become the new normal, Vivo stands committed to provide camera innovation to the creators of today. And today’s launch is Vivo’s showcase to that commitment.”

Vivo V20’s doesn’t just have the Super Night Mode, there is also a new Tripod Night Mode which increases stability and exposure to make the night shots look flawless.
