vivo makes the V23 and V23e official in the Philippines as the brand’s latest mid-range 5G phones. The V23’s gold color option has a color-changing back panel and features a 50-megapixel selfie camera that’s paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera and dual-LED flash. Its triple rear camera setup consists of a 64-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and 2-megapixel macro camera, while the display is a 6.44-inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel with a 90hz refresh rate.
Powering the V23 is a Dimensity 920 processor that’s paired with 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. Keeping the lights on is a 4200mAh battery with 44w wired charging.
The V23e, on the other hand, is powered by a Dimensity 810 processor that’s paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. You get a 44-megapixel selfie snapper and a 50-megapixel main rear camera, and the same ultra-wide-angle camera and macro camera as the V23. The battery on the V23e is smaller at 4000mAh, but you still get the same 44w wired charging.
