While we wait for the Vivo V21 Pro India launch, it looks like the company is already ready with the Vivo V23 series. Today, the Vivo V23e with model number V2116 was spotted on the IMEI database website. The listing confirms the name of the phone and suggests that the Vivo V23 series launch is around the corner. The Vivo V23 series will succeed the V21 series that launched earlier this year. The Vivo V21 and V21e have been launched in India, with the V21 Pro expected to arrive later this month.

Vivo V23e spotted on IMEI database

Tipster Mukul Sharma spotted the Vivo V23e smartphone on the IMEI database. The listing doesn’t reveal anything apart from the name and model number. This is the first time we are hearing about a phone in the Vivo V23 series so there’s not much to go on in terms of hardware and design. Suffice it to say that the Vivo V23e will look to improve upon the V21e.

To recall, the Vivo V21e is a 5G phone that was launched in India last month. The phone features a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and the MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset. The handset comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Vivo V21e 5G houses a 4,000mAh battery and supports 44W fast charging. In the camera department, the smartphone offers a 64MP primary sensor and an 8MP wide-angle lens. At the front, the phone gets a 32MP front-facing camera.

The upcoming Vivo V23e will likely get upgraded hardware and should offer 5G support like the V21e. We expect to learn more about the Vivo V23 series launch in the coming weeks as the phones appear on more certification platforms.
