Vivo is launching a new color variant for one of its mid-range devices. The company has announced a new gradient finish SuperNova Red variant for the Vivo V11 Pro in India, which is now available for purchase on Amazon. Launching phones with the new gradient finish is a thing now. Almost every Chinese smartphone manufacturer has launched a smartphone or two that comes with a gradient back panel. It looks quite good and gives a unique flavor to the smartphone. Companies also follow this tactic to build up lost interest in a phone that has already been launched.
Vivo V11 Pro SuperNova Red Variant
The Vivo V11 Pro has been available in India since September 12, 2018. This is a mid-range smartphone from Vivo, which competes with phones such as the Realme 2 Pro, Motorola One Power, Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, Note 5 Pro, Nokia 6.1 Plus and many more. The phone comes in two color variants: Starry Night and Dazzling Gold. The Starry Night Black variant features a gradient finish at the back depicting a starry night.
Now, the company has launched a new gradient finish for the Vivo V11 Pro. The new color is called SuperNova Red and it looks quite good, at least in promo images. The back panel has a dark red color at the top, which then fades into a lighter shade of red with a wavy pattern. If you want to stand apart from the crowd, then this phone will definitely help you do that. The phone would look best without a case but if you are afraid of dropping it, then get a transparent one to show off the color better.
The SuperNova Red Vivo V11 Pro is available for purchase from Amazon India. It is priced at INR 25,990, which is the same as the other two color variants. The phone comes in one variant only, which has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. As a launch offer, ICICI Band Credit and Debit card users will get an instant 5% discount.
The V11 Pro comes with a 6.41-inch Super AMOLED display with an FHD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch. The phone uses an In-display fingerprint scanner and is probably the cheapest device available in India with this new feature. Internally, the V11 Pro has a Snapdragon 660 processor which is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. A microSD card slot is available as well. In the camera department, the phone has two sensors at the back (12MP+5MP) and a 25MP sensor at the front. A 3400mAh battery is available with support for 18W fast charging. All in all, this is a pretty good package.
Vivo Launching NEX 2 on December 12
Unless you were living under a rock, you probably know that Vivo is gearing up to launch the successor to the Vivo Nex. The company will be holding an event in China on December 12, 2018, to unveil the Vivo Nex 2. This new flagship is going to have a secondary display at the back. Vivo is doing this to get rid of the front facing camera on the front. In the previous gen Vivo Nex, the front camera was embedded within the phone’s body and used a pop-up mechanism to function. That was not a great implementation, which is why the company is now going with dual screens instead. With a secondary display at the back, you can simply use the rear camera for selfies.
