Vivo has released the latest phones in the company’s mainstream the V23 and V23 Pro to continue the tradition of prioritising selfies and a ‘color-changing’ exterior.
Vivo said that the material took two years to research and development. The most unusual feature is the Sunshine Gold model’s ‘color-changing’ exterior that apparently shifts colors completely when exposed to sunlight. The phone will turn to blue-green when exposed to the sun for about thirty seconds before gradually returning back to the original gold.
Other standout features are the display’s notch that houses two selfie cameras, a 50-megapixel main unit and an 8-megapixel ultrawide on both phones and the selfie camera system also supports eye-based autofocus.
The V23 Pro has a 108-megapixel main camera on the back while the V23’s is 64 megapixels; both are joined by 8-megapixel ultrawide and 2-megapixel macro sensors.
The V23 Pro’s screen is a 6.56-inch 90Hz 1080p OLED panel with curved edges. The V23, however, has a flat 6.44-inch 90Hz 1080p panel, and the sides of the phone itself are also flat, similar to an iPhone 12 or 13. The other main difference between the two phones is the processor — the V23 has a MediaTek Dimensity 920, while the V23 Pro has a Dimensity 1200.
