Today, vivo made its X23 smartphone official for the Chinese market.
The vivo X23 has an in-display fingerprint scanner embedded under its 6.41-inch 1080x2340px Super AMOLED display. The display sports a tiny water drop notch for the 12MP selfie camera that, combined with an IR scanner, is used for facial recognition.

Powering the vivo X23 is the new Snapdragon 670 chipset with an eight core processor and 8GB of RAM. There's something vivo calls Dual Turbo Acceleration Engine for improved performance.
Imaging is handled by a main array of a 12MP f/1.8 regular and 13MP f/2.4 ultra wide cameras and opposite them a bright 12MP f/2.0 selfie snapper. The cameras are naturally adorned with all the AI bells and whistles you can think of - AI Beauty, AI Portrait, etc.
