OPPO has recently launched the OPPO R17 and R17 Pro smartphones with waterdrop display design. Sibling brand Vivo too will be launching Vivo X23 and Vivo V11 series with very similar design on Sept.6. While the X23 smartphone will be launching in China, the V11 and V11 Pro will be announced in India. Compared to predecessor X21 and V9 smartphones, their upcoming successors will be featuring displays with smaller notch. Fresh photos of the Vivo X23 have surfaced to reveal its front and rear appearance. In one of the photos, the front design of the Vivo X23 is compared with OPPO R17 to show the display notch difference.
Vivo has claimed that the Vivo X23 will be offering 91 percent screen-to-body ratio and this is quite evident in the above photos. The reflective glass rear gives a premium appeal. The company has already confirmed that it will be arriving in color gradient options Magic Night Black, Phantom Purple and Phantom Purple. The handset shown is the black version of the phone.
The above photo that compares the front design of both phones shows that the OPPO R17 placed on the left has a drop-like notch whereas the notch on X23 appears round. The below image shows the differences in the positioning of the rear dual cameras on both phones. The X23 and R17 lack rear mounted fingerprint scanner as these devices are equipped with under-display fingerprint scanner.
Like the Oppo R17, the Vivo X23 is expected to be fueled by Snapdragon 670. The other rumored features of the X23 include 6.4-inch S-AMOLED screen, 128 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. There is no information available on the pricing of the phone yet.
