In a bid to bring premium features to affordable mid-range devices, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has launched the V11 Pro in India. The Vivo V11 Pro, which is priced at Rs. 25,990, packs in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
The device will be available in two color options, including a new black/blue color which draws its inspiration from Vincent Van Gogh’s The Starry Night. The device is expected to go on sale starting from September 12 with pre-bookings now open on the company’s website, Amazon and on Paytm.
Despite its decidedly mid-range specifications, the device packs in a large 6.41-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with minimal bezels on all sides and a small, non-obtrusive waterdrop-style notch. At first glance the device looks quite premium and modern, with a screen-to-body ratio of over 90 percent, which is even greater than that of the notchless Vivo Nex.

|Display||6.41-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED|
|Processor||Qualcomm Snapdragon 660|
|Primary Cameras||12MP f/1.8 + 5MP f/2.4|

Vivo V11 Pro Cameras
The device packs in a fourth generation in-display fingerprint scanner, which is touted to be 10 percent faster and 50 percent more secure than previous generations. The Vivo V11 Pro also packs in an impressive 12MP f/1.8+5MP f/2.4 dual camera setup with Vivo’s Dual Pixel camera technology which results in stunning images.
The camera also offers an intelligent AI Scene Identification utility, which enhances the images clicked by detecting the subject matter. The device features a 25MP f/2.0 selfie shooter, which also features portrait mode capabilities.
Vivo V11 Pro Battery & Software
Powering the device is a respectable 3,400mAh Li-ion battery with support for Vivo’s Dual-Engine fast charging technology, which will ensure that the device charges up quickly in times of need. In terms of the software experience, Vivo has packed in its customization-heavy Funtouch OS 4.5 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The OS itself brings a ton of features, including a very fluid gesture-based navigation system which works quite well.
Priced at Rs. 25,990, the Vivo V11 Pro seems like a compelling buy for people looking for a device that offers premium flagship features like an in-display fingerprint sensor and an edge-to-edge display display at an affordable price.
