Official Renders of Bezel-less Vivo X20 Full-Screen Phone Leak

by Jed John 23

This year 2017 is sure looking likely to have the record of being the year of bezel-less phones. Since Xiaomi released the bezel-less Mi Mix last year, we have lost count of the number of bezel-less phones that have been launched this year alone. From the flagship Galaxy S8 to the budget Doogee Mix, the list continues to grow. Right now, Vivo looks set to join the fray with its own full-screen phone which is dubbed Vivo X20.Vivo X20

Vivo has not been very active this year in its frequency of smartphone releases this year but the sure look set to launch a mid-range flagship-looking model in the X20. The company recently shared two renders of the X20 and from the photos, it can be seen that the device will come in white and black colours. The shape looks very much like the Galaxy S8 with an ultra thin bezel on the upper and lower edges, giving the device a high screen-to-body ratio. The sides look like what will be without bezels.Vivo X20

The device is being projected as Vivo’s first full-screen phone and is expected to utilize an 18:9 aspect ratio, judging from the size of the renders. No further detail is revealed about the X20 but the device is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest mid-range Snapdragon 660 SoC. The processor will be backed by 6GB of RAM.The device is also expected to feature a powerful camera configured with Vivo’s latest DSP image processing technology and maybe dual cameras at the front and rear.

As to when the Vivo X20 will be released, we can’t say but we expect more teasers to be released in the coming days.

    Looks way better than any tri-bezel-less phone

  • Stiven

    Looks very nice, good specs, but I suspect it won’t be cheap, if I had to guess i would say around 400$.

    • Rob

      This is Vivo so expect $450+, wouldn’t be surprised to see it hit $550-600 once resellers get hold of it.

      • Stiven

        I’m so disappointed I have expected sd660 in more affordable devices but there is non, actually there is no affordable sd660 devices for now, so it has more sense to buy sd835 device. I know vivo is expensive but I don’t understand why xiaomi don’t use sd660 and give us what we need decent device with decent price.

        • Rob

          Probably because it’s their flagship mid-range chipset so QC probably only supplying to manufacturers to fit in upper mid-range phones. Probably see it in more affordable handsets come christmas. Just have to wait it out I’m afraid!

        • balcobomber25

          The 660 wasn’t meant to be in affordable phones, that is what the 630 and 625 are for. The 660 is meant for the upper-midrange and even some budget flagships which is the $300+ price.

          That doesn’t mean some company won’t use it in a cheaper phone but that’s what no one has yet.

      • balcobomber25

        And I wouldn’t be surprised to see myself camped outside a Vivo store on my next trip to China to buy one….

  • xcerty

    how it’s bezelless ? are you fucking retarded ?

    • balcobomber25

      Bezelless is a marketing term and nothing else. It has been used on products for a few years now and nearly all of them have some sort of bezel.

      And there’s really no need for childish profanity.

  • G’n’T

    This being Vivo even with the 660 in it, it will be close to the same price as the Samsung. And it will still sell truckloads! lol

    • NextHype

      you’re a bit exaggerating ^^
      it’ll probably sell around $400-$450

      • G’n’T

        Vivo’s first ‘full screen’ phone, I’m guessing closer to $600.

    • balcobomber25

      And it will be worth every penny. There’s a reason Vivo has such a loyal following.

      • G’n’T

        I am one of those loyal followers. I still have and use my XShot. Just wish I could afford their more top of the line phones.

        • balcobomber25

          I love the Xshot, I still use it sometimes when I am back in Thailand. I wish they would make an Xshot 2!

          • Hansb

            Still using Xshot as daily driver and except for a cracked screen it is good and fun to use.
            I really wish Vivo made Xshot 2, pushing camera performance boundaries again.

          • G’n’T

            It’s a shame they never updated the software to a newer Android version as well.

          • Hansb

            Yeah well indeed it runs 4.4.2 but some features of Funtouch 2.0 actually were found on later versions of Android.
            Furthermore their version of KitKat must be optimized quite well because I easily get a day of battery life with heavy use (no gaming)

          • G’n’T

            Agree. I get a full day easy and that’s with taking a lot of photos when I’m on holidays..

          • G’n’T

            Couldn’t agree more..

  • Daniel McDermott

    Certainly not bezel-less, but still not bad. Definitely one to watch. 2nd half of 2017 is certainly going to be a parade of skinny bezeled phones.

    • Vesuvius

      Good because they have all become such boring slabs that all look the same…time for a change

  • NextHype

    Nice to see Vivo releasing a 90%+ screen/body ratio phone, whatever may be the marketing name (bezel-less, full-vision, big-ass-screen, or whatever).
    SD660 is a good choice, let’s hope this will reflect on final product price.
