Vivo has launched a new smartphone, called Vivo X23 Symphony Edition, in China. Compared to the Vivo X23 phone that was announced in September, the newly introduced Symphony Edition features an older chipset and lower amount of RAM. The X23 Symphony Edition includes some improved features such as better selfie camera, and a slightly larger battery.
The Vivo X23 Symphony Edition is 157.6 x 75.4 7.1 mm in size, and weighs 162 grams. It has arrived in China in two attractive colors of Arctic Morning, and Starry Night Ocean. The 2.5D holographic illusion glass on the rear side of the phone exhibits mesmerizing depth effect.
Vivo‘s new handset features a 6.41-inch Super AMOLED screen that carries support for FHD+ (2340×1080 pixels) resolution. Like the X23, the Symphony Edition also features an in-screen fingerprint reader. Instead of the Snapdragon 670 SoC found on the X23, the Symphony Edition features Snapdragon 660 chipset from last year. Also, the 8GB of RAM on the X23 has been replaced by 6GB of RAM on the Symphony Edition.
The new handset includes a built-in storage of 128GB. It includes a microSD card slot for more storage. The handset receives power from 3,500mAh battery, which is 100mAh larger than the one on the X23. It carries support for 18W fast charging through USB-C.
