Chinese mobile maker Vivo has launched a new variant of the Vivo X23 in China. The Vivo X23 was launched back in September in Fashion Orange, Fashion Purple, Midnight Blue, Phantom Purple, and Phantom Red colour models, but now the company has added a Star Edition to the mix. The Vivo X23 Star Edition comes as yet another addition to the recent crop of smartphones that have a glossy gradient colour at the back. However, the paint job on the Vivo X23 Star Edition is a little different as it is a Red-coloured handset with streaks of other contrasting colours running through the middle in vertical lines. However, apart from the colour, there are no changes in terms of price, features, and specifications. The key highlights of the handset include a waterdrop display notch, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a 3D glass body, Jovi AI, Face Unlock, a 6.41-inch display, Snapdragon 670 SoC, 8GB RAM, 3,400mAh battery, and more.
The Vivo X23 Start Edition has been priced at CNY 3,498 (roughly Rs. 37,100). It is the same price tag that the original Vivo X23 arrived with. The smartphone is currently available for pre-order on the Vivo's China website. However, the smartphone will go on sale on November 3. The smartphone was first launched in five colour variants, but the Start Edition adds another one to the mix. As mentioned, it features a light to dark Red colour gradient finish with vertical stripes along the rear end.
Apart from the new colour option, the Vivo X23 Star Edition features the same specifications as that of the original Vivo X23. The Vivo 23 Star Edition is a dual-SIM smartphone that runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based Funtouch OS. It sports a 6.41-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Super AMOLED display and is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor clocked upto 2.0GHz. The smartphone comes with 8GB of RAM.
For optics, the Vivo X23 Star Edition also features a dual camera setup with a 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 13-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 125-degree super wide-angle lens. It also comes with a 12-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. Notably, it has 128GB of inbuilt storage.
Connectivity options in the Vivo X23 Start Edition includes 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0 (with aptX), GPS, GLONASS, and OTG support. It packs the same 3,400mAh battery. The handset measures 157.68x74.06x7.47mm and weighs 160.5 grams.
