vivo X23 live images surface, comparing it to the Oppo R17

Vlad, 29 August 2018

vivo's X23 is due to become official on September 6, which means these days there are a lot of leaks about it going around. Yesterday the Chinese company itself posted official images of the phone on its website (though they weren't meant to be publicly accessible).

Today someone in possession of an X23 unit decided to create an impromptu photo session, showing the upcoming handset in all its glory, somewhere in the wild.

The next two pictures compare the X23 to the Oppo R17, and while they definitely do look similar, there are a few differences - namely, the positioning of their respective dual rear camera islands, as well as the shapes of their screen notches.

The vivo X23 is expected to launch in Phantom Purple, Magic Night, and Phantom Red. The unit shown here is the Magic Night version, with a gradient glass look on the back.

According to past rumors and leaks, the Snapdragon 670 is powering the vivo X23, with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. An under-display fingerprint reader is in, while the 6.4" screen's resolution is 1080x2340. The screen-to-body ratio enabled by that tiny notch is 91.2%.

It's atleast not as exactly same as all those Xiaomi phones which blatantly copy the iphone X design lol! Every single model of MI these days has the same exact copied placement of the rear cameras including the flash! I bet you can't differenciate i...

The camera of course always look like iphone X. Looking premium from the back but the front just wow. Look at how those penguins making the UI look childish and cartoonish.
