The recently announced Vivo V11 has a massive 6.41-inch AMOLED display with a notch and an integrated fingerprint reader. Powered by the Snapdragon 660 processor, it also sports 6 GB of memory and 128 GB internal storage. The price is not official yet, but the Chinese market is expected to get it for less than US$450.

Chinese company Vivo is back with a very attractive device that we can only hope to see officially available in other countries. For now, they only announced the Vivo V11 phablet, so the launch date — even for the Chinese market — remains a secret.

Known as the V11 Pro in India — the only noticeable difference being the missing 64 GB of storage space when compared to the non-pro — the Vivo V11 comes with the following highlights: Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 6 GB of memory, 128 GB internal storage, 6.41-inch Super AMOLED notched display with 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, infrared face unlocking, in-display fingerprint scanning, 25 MP selfie shooter, 12 MP f/1.8 + 5 MP f/2.4 main camera, 3,400 mAh battery, Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.5 on top.

Although Vivo also added a 3.5 mm audio jack, there are quite a few things missing. Early reviews shown that the photo quality provided by the handset's cameras is quite low, there is no USB Type-C charging, no NFC, and no IP rating for protection from the elements.

In the end, the Vivo V11 might come out as an attractive device if the price goes as low as US$365. However, this is the best scenario mentioned by the ongoing rumors. Depending on the market, this handset is expected to go up to US$440 (and probably higher if it ever reaches Europe or the United States).

All the above considered, how much would you be willing to shell out for the Vivo V11 and why? Let us know in the comments.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
