But unlike what you’re thinking, the Vivo V11i is still an interesting device. And in general, it still boasts some of the main characteristics of the V11.
It comes with a MediaTek Helio P60 processor, a powerful chipset that can be found on most midrange devices today. To back it up, the V11i has 4GB of RAM and an absolutely generous 128GB of storage.
The Vivo V11i retains the 25-megapixel selfie camera that the V11 has, as well as the 16-megapixel and 5-megapixel combo on the back. It also has a relatively similar 3,315mAh battery with fast-charging technology.
To keep the price down, Vivo has to remove the in-display fingerprint scanner on the V11i. The said sensor is now in its usual location at the back. Also, the Super AMOLED screen was downgraded to an LTPS pane, although it still has an FHD+ resolution and a “Halo” notch on top.
Design-wise, the V11 and V11i look very similar. Both devices come in a gradient Nebula Fusion and Starry Night color variants. Probably the only way you can tell them apart is by the V11i’s fingerprint scanner on the back.
