Vivo V23, V23 Pro specifications and features (expected)

Both smartphones come with some interesting specifications and features. The company has already teased some features, and thanks to multiple reports and leaks, we know pretty much about the upcoming Vivo smartphones. So here’s everything that we know about the upcoming Vivo V23 and V23 Pro.

India’s first colour changing smartphone

We’ve seen some interesting designs from smartphone brands over the last couple of years, and Vivo itself has made some fascinating smartphones in the past with some mind-blowing features. With Vivo V23, the company is introducing colour changing glass. The rear panel of Vivo V23 and V23 Pro is carved out of colour-changing glass, aka ‘Changeable Flourite Glass’, which contains fuller crystals, offering better light reflection and sparkle compared to AG matte glass. The rear panel will change its shade when exposed to sunlight or other UV light sources. The smartphone will come in two colours: Stardust Black and Sunshine Gold. One thing to note, the colour-changing effect will only be available on the Sunshine Gold colour.

50MP selfie camera with dual-tone spotlight

Vivo V23 and V23 Pro will be India’s first smartphones to come with a 50MP Eye AF front-facing camera, but that’s not it. The two will also feature an 8MP ultra-wide camera with support for Night Mode. Finding a smartphone with a front-facing LED is quite a rarity in itself, but Vivo V23 and V23 Pro will be coming with a dual-tone front-facing LED flashlight (which it is calling spotlight). This ‘spotlight’ will offer three light modes, namely Cold Light, Neutral Light and Warm Light.

108MP main camera with smart ISO

The Pro model will come with a 108MP triple camera setup with smart ISO. Meanwhile, the vanilla V23 will have a 64MP triple rear camera setup. The main camera on two smartphones will be paired with an 8MP ultrawide sensor and a 2MP super macro sensor.

Vivo V23 is rumoured to feature a 6.44-inch FHD+ display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. Under the hood, the V23 will come with Dimensity 920 SoC, up to 12GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone will boast a 4,200mAh battery with 44W fast charging support.
