In late August Vivo introduced the X23, an upgrade to the successor X21, its first in-display fingerprint enabled smartphone. The Chinese smartphone maker now has released yet another colour model of its popular affordable premium smartphone. The new Vivo X23 will now come in a Star version hue, which is the sixth colour gradient option users can now opt from. The new X series is already available for purchase in China.
The nature of this star version gradient is predominantly red with dark lines starting roughly from the middle of the device on its rear. Shared on Weibo, the literal translation of this colour name is Star version, but many are calling it Star Mans version as well. Unfortunately, if you have been expecting specification changes or features, then you’d not be impressed, because there is no change at all. It’s just a colour addition to the existing line-up, which includes phantom purple, magic night blue, phantom red, fashion purple, and fashion orange.
