 Exclusive Feature: Dual-Tone Spotlight


The V23 5G comes with an exclusive feature: the Dual-Tone Spotlight which remains unique to vivo's V series. The Dual-Tone Spotlights are LED lights that are built into the front of the device, on either sides of the front cameras. The Dual-Tone Spotlight acts as an additional light source for users who are taking selfies or videos in low light settings, enabling the camera sensors to capture much more detail and depth. The Dual-Tone Spotlight also gives users the flexibility to switch between warm light settings, cool light settings or a mixture of both, allowing users to better express their creativity in their selfies and videos.
