Vivo V23 Global Release Date Price Features Everything You Need to Know

Vivo V23 Global Release Date Price Features Everything You Need to Know

50Mp dual selfie cameras, triple rear cameras and slim designs make the Vivo V23 and V23 Pro attractive mid-range options.

Vivo’s selfie-focused mid-range V-series is back with the Vivo V23 and V23 Pro, and we’ve got all the details on both.

For reasons Vivo knows best, the V23 series is the sequel to last year’s V21 – there’s no V22. Otherwise, with a strong front-facing camera and slim designs on both phones, it’s a natural continuation – but eagle-eyed fans may find that these are truly rebrands of the Vivo S12 and S12 Pro, which were recently launched in China.

Here’s what you need to know.

What is the release date of the Vivo V23?

The Vivo V23 series was launched in India on January 5 and the phone is now ready to order.

The phones will go on sale in other Asian countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, and will go on sale in the next few months in APAC, the Middle East and other European markets.

Vivo sells phones in Europe and offers the V21 in the UK and other European markets, but not every new Vivo phone comes to Europe – so it’s good to hear that the V23 will work.

Currently, Vivo does not officially sell any phones in the United States, so a presentation there will be completely discontinued.

How Much Does A Vivo V23 Cost?

Since the V23 series has so far only been sold in India, we are still waiting to see how much it will cost if the phones are sold elsewhere.

Indian prices with approximate conversions are:

Vivo V23:

  • 8GB+128GB – ₹29,990 (around £300/€360/$400)
  • 12GB+256GB – ₹34,990 (around £350/€420/$470)

Vivo V23 Pro:

  • 8GB+128GB – ₹38,990 (around £390/€460/$520)
  • 12GB+256GB – ₹43,990 (around £440/€520/$590)

Innovations In V23 Design And Specifications

There are two phones in the V23 series, let’s take a look at them one by one. The Vivo V23 Pro features a step up for the V23 Pro V series and approaches the true flagship features without losing the selfie camera.

V23

The first thing to note is that the phone is still compact and lightweight – only 7.36 mm thick and weighs only 171 grams.

Thanks to the curves on both the screen and the body, the phone actually looks thinner. It is coated with Fluorite AG Glass, which Vivo has used in previous phones, and the colors vary depending on the light: Sunshine Gold and Stardust Black.

Impressively, the V23 Pro is very compact despite its 6.56-inch screen. This is an AMOLED display with Full HD + image size, but keep in mind that it is limited to 90Hz and is slightly behind the now widespread 120Hz.

Inside the phone you will find MediaTek Dimensity 1200. It is MediaTek’s previous generation flagship as it has been replaced by the Dimensity 9000, but it is still a solid chipset in the upper middle range of the market.

Vivo V23

Let’s go to the cameras. On the front you will find dual selfie cameras: 50Mp main camera with autofocus combined with 8Mp ultra wide.

Surprisingly, the V21’s self-portfolio’s best-selling optical image stabilization (OIS) is not available here, so there are concerns that performance in low light will be worse than the previous generation. ultra wide, more attractive than OIS for Vivo’s target market.

The 108Mp main camera on the back is equipped with a Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor, accompanied by an 8Mp ultra-wide and less interesting 2Mp macro shooter.

As for the battery, although it does not have Qi wireless support, it has a 4300 mAh cell with 44 W wired charging, which is quite typical for a phone of this size and feature.

Finally, the phone comes with Android 12 running Vivo’s own Funtouch OS 12 skin above.

Vivo V23 features

The base Vivo V23 is shown in a very similar way, but you will not know it by looking at it.

Vivo V23

The phone has a completely different body from the V23 Pro, the square edges are immediately reminiscent of the design of the latest iPhones – but a similar camera module and matching Sunshine Gold and Stardust Black color choices show that it is from the same model. soap opera.

The Pro model is a bit thicker and heavier than usual, but the straight sides, though not much, make it feel a little heavier than the round and curved Pro body. It has a slightly smaller screen of 6.44 inches, but still Full HD + 90Hz AMOLED.

The features are similar, but differ in several key areas. The processor is paired with the cheaper MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset used here, with a slightly slower and smaller 4200 mAh battery. Again, the payment is the same.

Although the front camera pair is the same, you will find a lower resolution and a smaller sensor for the main rear camera, which is limited to 64Mp.
