Plus Home Credit and Credit Card 0% Plans revealed

The first color-changing vlogging phone launched by vivo, the vivo V23 Series 5G is now available in all vivo stores nationwide and e-commerce sites.

The global tech brand launched its newest smartphone in the Philippines via a digital event hosted by vivo ambassadors Maine Mendoza and the newest part of the vivo family, Alden Richards on Feb. 12, 2022.

The program started with a message from world-renowned band LANY before moving to a rundown of the V23 Series 5G’s design and photography specs explained by the two ambassadors It was also then followed by a tech expert who shared insight on the smartphone’s outstanding performance.

The phone offers a MediaTek Dimensity 920 5G chip, along with 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, triple rear cameras, dual-front cameras, and a 4,200mAh battery capacity with 44W fast charging.

One of the phone’s color variants, Sunshine Gold, also has a photochromic effect — the phone’s color turns to gold when exposed to the sun for quite some time and reverts back to its normal aqua gradient color when cooled. You can also use this effect to imprint designs and texts at the back of your smartphone.
