Vivo V23 series India launch timeframe and key features
The publication claims that the Vivo V23 will launch in India in January 2022. It added that the V23 lineup will “come in with India’s first 50MP Eye Autofocus Dual Selfie Camera.” Some reports had claimed that the V23 could be a rebranded version of V23e 4G/5G. However, this rumour has been debunked since the V23e features a single front-facing camera. A recent report claimed that the Vivo V23 Pro will debut first, while the V23 may arrive on a later date.
The Vivo V23 series commercial was reportedly aired during the Pro Kabaddi League match on Star Sports. The ad showcased the V23 series handset in Sunshine Gold hue. It also revealed that the phone features a curved edge display and a 64-megapixel triple camera unit. At the end of the video, a grey colour variant is also shown alongside the golden model.

The Vivo S12 Pro features a 6.44-inch AMOLED FHD+ 90Hz display, an autofocus-enabled 50-megapixel (main) + 8-megapixel (ultrawide) dual selfie camera, and a triple camera unit featuring an OIS-assisted 108-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens.
The Dimensity 1200 chipset powers the S12 Pro with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage. It has a 4,300mAh battery with 44W fast charging. The vanilla Vivo S12 has Dimensity 1100 chipset, 44-megapixel + 8-megapixel dual selfie camera setup, and a 4,200mAh battery. The rest of the specs of the S12 are identical to its Pro model.
