Vivo has announced the V11 samrtphone, which combines elements from Vivo's X21 and Oppo's new F9. The mid-ranger comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner and a waterdrop-notch on its 6.41" AMOLED screen. Like the F9, the V11 has a "Halo Fullview Display" with a very small notch.
An in-display fingerprint sensor works the same way as on other Vivo phones like the NEX and X21; it's slightly slower than a traditional fingerprint scanner, but more convenient to use than a scanner on the back of the phone.
The smartphones' OLED screen is covering 99.5 percent of the P3 color gamut and is offering great contrast and viewing angles.
The vivo V11 runs on the Snapdragon 660 chipset, a huge upgrade over the 626 SoC that powered its vivo V9 predecessor. It sports an octa-core CPU clocked at up to 2.2 GHz, an Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB RAM.
The two options for the V11 are "Starry Night" and "Nebula Fusion."
Other important specs of the new smartphone include:
- Snapdragon 660 processor
- 19.5:9 6.41-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display
- 6GB of RAM
- 128GB of storage
- 3400mAh battery
- 25-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera
- 12-megapixel f/1.8 rear camera with 5-megapixel secondary sensor
- Funtouch OS 4.5 atop Android 8.1
- Headphone jack
- Dual-Engine fast charging over a Micro USB port
Vivo is bringing the V11 to India and Thailand first, with several other international markets to follow. Pricing and release date information isn't yet available.
