In 2014, vivo released the Y11 with a 4″ LCD, 5MP primary camera, and a 1,700 mAh battery, and in October 2019, it released a new edition with a more contemporary style and improved specifications. vivo has revealed the Y11’s 2023 version, which is anticipated to have a different appearance and hardware.
If you’re looking for a unique way to express yourself, this is the place to be. The screen width has grown from 6.35″ to 6.51″, but it remains a 60Hz LCD with HD+ quality.
However, unlike the 2019 model, the 2023 Y11 has flat frames and a flat back panel with a rectangular camera island with a large circle containing the 8MP main camera and LED light. The Y11 2019 had a dual camera system on the rear with 13MP main and 2MP depth sensors. It was also accompanied by a fingerprint reader, which the 2023 variant lacks. That’s not because it’s incorporated in the power switch, but because vivo completely ignored it.
The vivo Y11 (2019) was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 439 SoC, whereas the Y11 (2023) is powered by MediaTek’s Helio P35 processor, with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, extendable up to 1TB via a microSD card. The smartphone runs Android 12-based OriginOS Ocean out of the box and has a 5,000 mAh battery that, like the Y11, gets juice via a microUSB port at up to 10W. (2019).
The vivo Y11 (2023) is available in blue and black, with two memory options: 4GB/128GB and 6GB/128GB, priced at CNY899 ($130/€120/INR10,755) and CNY999 ($145/€135/INR11,950). It’s mentioned on vivo’s official Chinese website, but there’s no news on when it’ll be available in China or elsewhere.
