Vivo has launched the X23 smartphone with a large display and a small waterdrop notch in China. On the same day, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer also launched the V11 Pro in India. The Vivo X23 device is very similar to the V11 Pro, but there are a few differences.
The Vivo X23 is powered by Snapdragon 670 processor and coupled with an 8GB RAM. It has 12MP (f/1.8 aperture) + 13MP 125-degree wide-angle cameras on the back and a 12MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The front camera is combined with an IR scanner, which is used for facial recognition.
The storage is 128GB and 3,400mAH battery. Contrary to this, V11 Pro has 12MP+5MP dual rear cameras and a 25MP front-facing camera.
The Vivo X23 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 1080×2340 resolution. It runs Android 8.1 underneath Vivo's Funtouch OS 4.5.
