vivo launched the V23 and V23 Pro in India last month, and the company will further expand the lineup in the country by introducing the V23e 5G on February 21.
The vivo V23e 5G was unveiled last November and will come in gold and blue colors in India. And if vivo makes no changes to the specs for the Indian market, you’ll get the Dimensity 810 SoC, 6.44″ FullHD+ AMOLED screen, 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, Android 11-based FuntouchOS 12, and 4,050 mAh battery with 44W charging.
The V23e 5G will also feature an in-display fingerprint reader, a 44MP selfie camera, and a 50MP primary camera on the rear joined by 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro units.
However, the V23e 5G doesn’t come with a color-changing Fluorite AG glass like the V23 and V23 Pro, so don’t expect it to change colors when exposed to sunlight or artificial UV light sources.
The V23e 5G was launched in Thailand with a price tag of THB12,999 ($400/€355) for the 8GB/128GB variant, which translates to INR30,270 ($405/€355). But since it will be positioned below the V23 and V23 Pro, starting at INR29,990 ($400/€350) and INR38,990 ($520/€455), respectively, in India, you can expect it to launch at around INR25,000 ($330/€295) or less in the world’s second-largest smartphone market.
We’ll find out more about the vivo V23e 5G’s pricing and availability in India on Monday. But in the meantime, you can read our vivo V23 review here and V23 Pro review here.
