The Vivo Y20G is already available for purchase in India, with the official price set at INR 14,990.
Vivo Y20G Overview

Other than the new color option of Purist Blue, the Y20G retains the design of the regular Y20. The device has a plastic back and side frame, measuring 8.41mm in thickness and weighing 192.3 grams.
The device features a 6.51-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 16000 pixels in a 20:9 aspect ratio, which is the same display used in the regular Y20. The screen has a waterdrop notch to house the single front-facing camera. The phone body has a screen-to-body ratio of 81.6%, with noticeable bezels around the screen and ~270 PPI density.
Performance and Memory
Although the Y20G’s design aspect is the same as the regular Y20, the Y20G is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, which is much more powerful than the Snapdragon 460 in the regular Y20. Vivo claims the Y20G to be 20% better optimized than the Y20.
The device is available in a single configuration of 6GB RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The device’s internal storage can be extended using the dedicated microSD card slot. The device runs on Funtouch 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.

The Y20G is backed up by a massive 5000 mAh battery with the support of 18W fast charging. According to Vivo, the device can charge up to 70% in 69 minutes. The device also supports reverse charging. However, the device still uses the micro USB.
