So the successors to the Vivo V19 series are launching soon, six months after the latter debuted in Indonesia.

(Update, October 6: We have the series’ Philippine launch date!)

(Update, September 24: The SE version is official! Read Vivo V20 SE debuts with 32MP selfie cam, 48MP rear cam.)

(Update, September 22: There’s a Pro! Read Vivo V20 Pro 5G debuts, and it looks familiar.)

Vivo Malaysia has already revealed that the Vivo V20 SE‘s announcement is scheduled for September 24, while in Indonesia, Vivo V20 and Vivo V20 SE marketing materials are all over the metro.

A screenshot of Vivo Malaysia’s website. While the page says ‘Vivo V20 SE,’ the URL — see the ‘V20 series’ there? — actually indicates there will be at least one more phone launching September 24


While in Indonesia…

Both smartphones, or any one of the two models, will likely become available in the Philippines, too, but probably in October, seeing the delay of the V19 and V19 Neo‘s local launch because of the first major COVID-19-related lockdown in the country.

Based on the official image of the Vivo V20, we’re thinking the device is the global variant of the Vivo S7 5G. Yes, that unit endorsed by Korean pop group Blackpink’s Lisa Manoban in China. The design of the V20 certainly looks like the S7, and the key features shown in the teasers — 44-megapixel selfie camera with eye auto-focus, 64-megapixel rear night camera, and 33-watt flash charge — are all highlights of the Snapdragon 765G-powered S7 as well.

What about the Vivo V20 SE? It was previously spotted on Geekbench bearing the model number Vivo V2022. The database shows it’s equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chip, 8GB of RAM, and Android 10. It was also seen to support 33 watts of fast charging in a document issued by the China Quality Certification. The latest official Vivo V20 SE teaser, on the other hand, reveals a Gravity Black color variant.
