The Vivo V20 price in India has been reportedly given an official price cut. The premium smartphone from Vivo’s lineup was launched last year, and so far, was retailed at a price of Rs 24,990. Now, electronics retailer Mahesh Telecom has posted on Twitter that the Vivo V20 price in India has been slashed by Rs 2,000. Now, the Vivo V20 is priced at Rs 22,990 for the 8GB + 128GB variant, and Rs 25,990 for the 8GB + 256GB variant (instead of Rs 27,990). The price cut of the Vivo V20 comes just ahead of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, which is when the Chinese OEM is expected to launch its next generation V-series smartphone, the Vivo V21.
The Vivo V20 was a reliable mid-range smartphone that offered decent performance thanks to a Snapdragon 7-series processor, and plenty of tricks up its sleeve in the camera department. The Vivo V-series is a mid-premium range series of smartphones, and the Vivo V20 price in India reflected the same. The discount offered on the smartphone right now is likely aimed at making space for the upcoming Vivo V21, and clearing out pending inventory for the upcoming smartphone.
While launch details about the Vivo V21 have not been clarified officially, rumours point at an upcoming launch nevertheless. As it stands, Vivo is making its return as the title sponsor of the IPL cricket tournament after a one-year hiatus, and the Vivo V21 may be the smartphone tasked with headlining a new portfolio of Vivo devices in 2021.
The Vivo V21 is rumoured to feature a new generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 7-series processor, along with an updated camera configuration that offers an upgrade over the already decent range of cameras offered in 2020’s Vivo V20 series. The Vivo V21 series is also expected to get three variants — a V21 SE, a standard V21 and a V21 Pro. Vivo has been rumoured to launch up to 11 smartphones in April itself, and the V21 series will likely be a part of this as well.
With the Vivo V20 price in India getting an official discount in the offline retail space, it now remains to be seen if the online stores also get proportionate discounts on different variants of the Vivo V20. As of now, there have been no reports of any price cuts being offered on the Vivo V20 Pro. Given that the upcoming V21 series is also expected to bring a Pro variant along with it, new prices of the V20 Pro may also be announced soon.
