The vanilla model, like the Pro, can change colors thanks to the Sunshine Gold version’s Fluorite AG Glass rear panel. That is not the case with the Stardust Black. Aside from the changing colors, the soft-touch matte finish is grippy and pleasant to the touch. vivo’s V series has always been focused on design, but this generation is arguably the most impressive.

The V23 has a 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90Hz and HDR10+ support. The panel is shielded by Schott Xensation Up glass, which claims to be more durable than existing solutions.

The show’s chipset is MediaTek’s Dimensity 920, which is paired with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM and storage options of 128GB or 256GB, respectively.
