Vivo was sensational news when it introduced Vivo Apex, a concept phone designed with a popup front camera and a fingerprint sensor placed under screen. Those features were materialized in Vivo Nex. This time, Vivo introduces V11, a smartphone without a popup camera but indeed features in-screen fingerprint scanner. Appearance-wise, the V11 looks similar with Oppo R17, one of the first midrange phones to feature such a sensor. The V11 features a Full HD AMOLED display, dubbed Halo FullView by the company.
With bezels of 1.76 mm thick, it comes with virtually without any at a screen to body ratio of 91.2 percent. The water drop-like notch found on Oppo R17 can also be observed on V11. Even under the sun the screen is bright and the front and the back are already layered with film protectors to defend against scratching. The in-screen fingerprint scanner works pretty fast. If you would rather unlock your phone with your face, the phone’s 25-MP front camera can execute the task just fine. The V11 works with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. The phone boasts a RAM of 6 GB and a storage capacity of 128 GB. The 6.41-inch Full HD plus AMOLED display sports a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.
The V11 is armed with a battery capacity of 3400 mAh and Android 8.1 with Funtouch OS 4.5 skin. There are two cameras at the back, 12 MP and 5 MP each. The cameras work perfectly well. Outdoor shots are sharp while taking photos in dim conditions gives decent results. The cameras are equipped with AI assistant that will help with taking pictures in portrait mode. There is also a beauty mode, which do marvelous things to the pictures such as slim down nose, enlarge eyes, and flatten cheeks—all in real time.
