Back in March, Vivo launched its third full-screen device, the Vivo X21, at the Wuzhen Internet International Center in China. The device came equipped with an all-screen notched display, but the highlight was the in-display fingerprint sensor. Subsequently, Vivo launched the annual flagship, Vivo NEX, to counter the high-end smartphone market with exceptional technology features.

Recently, two yet-to-be-launched Vivo devices have passed China’s 3C certification (spotted by TouTiao) with model numbers V1809A, V1809T. From the looks of it, they both seem like different versions of the same product. The devices listed are equipped with a power adapter of the type V2323A-CN, which supports the output of 5V/2A, 9V/2A or 10V/2.25A. This also means that the upcoming device could support up to 22.5W fast charging. Such flagship feature is unlikely to be introduced on a Y-series device, and it is highly likely to be from the X-series.

According to previous rumors, Vivo’s next-generation X-series device could be named Vivo X23, skipping the name X22. As for the reason, if you remember the models before the Vivo X20, you can find that the series has always used odd numbers. Except the X20, Vivo has named its devices X3, X5, X7, and X9. Therefore, the follow-up model to the Vivo X21 is likely to be the X23.

Watch: Vivo NEX First Look

It is said that the Vivo X23 will also be equipped with an in-display fingerprint sensor. On the design front, it could look something like the Oppo R17 with a very tiny notch at the top.

Further, the Vivo X23 is expected to come in two variants. The lower priced device is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor, while the more expensive variant is likely to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 mobile chipset. The high-end version is even expected to be equipped with 10GB of RAM, which is said to use 4GB and 6GB dual-channel technology, but the authenticity remains to be verified.
