Vivo has announced the V11- a new phone brand for India and a sister company to the Oppo brand
The Vivo V11 appears to be much alike withe Oppo F9 that was recently released to market, but no cause for alarm as both company seem to have a relationship as sister companies. Like the F9, the V11 has a new slimmed-down design for the display notch; while Oppo calls its version the “Waterdrop Screen,” Vivo’s take is called the “Halo Fullview Display.” the shape however are not very similar with the V11 having a much more angles than the F9 of Oppo.
The other feature that helps Vivo maximize screen-to-body ratio is the in-display fingerprint sensor, which at this point is basically the company’s trademark. It works the same way as on other Vivo phones like the NEX and X21; it’s slightly slower than a traditional fingerprint scanner, but more convenient to use than a scanner on the back of the phone. In-display fingerprint scanning technology only works with OLED screens which is a feature of the new v11, so this represents a upgrade for the V series following the V9’s LCD panel. It’s a really good screen, covering 99.5 percent of the P3 color gamut and offering great contrast and viewing angles.
Vivo is continuing this year’s trend of Chinese phone manufacturers experimenting with gradients and patterned finishes; the two options for the V11 are “Starry Night” and “Nebula Fusion.”
