A media report earlier this month suggested that the vivo V23 5G would be released in India in December, and we later learned that the V23 Pro would be released on January 4, 2022. While we have yet to receive confirmation from vivo on this date, we can now confirm that the vivo V23 series will launch in India next month.
Our source also claims that the V23 series will feature “come with India’s First 50MP Eye Autofocus Dual Selfie camera,” ruling out the V23e and V23e 5G, both of which have single front-facing cameras.
It’s unknown how many smartphones the V23 series will feature in India, but we know it will include the V23 and V23 Pro at next month’s event because an official promo film previewing both phones as “coming soon.” was played in India during a sports tournament.
In the short video, we see a Sunshine Gold-colored smartphone with a curved screen and three cameras on the back, as well as two phones, one gray and the other gold.
The former has a curved screen and a notch with two cameras, and the latter has a triple camera system with a 64MP camera at the center. Both phones are 5G capable. You can watch the whole promotional film by clicking on the link below.
The V23 Pro was initially thought to be a global version of the recently announced China-exclusive S12 Pro, however it appears that, despite having a similar design and 50MP dual selfie camera, the V23 Pro will not be a complete clone of the S12 Pro, as the latter has a 108MP primary camera.
At launch, the vivo V23 Pro is expected to be marketed as “India’s slimmest 3D curve display smartphone at 7.36mm” and you can expect to hear more about it as the new year approaches.
