             The Vivo V11 Pro houses a poly fibre body which is a mixture of both metal and plastic. All in all, the device looks and feels premium, those radiant colors make it look overall appealing. Now it might attract fingerprints; however, the radiant color might be able to hide the smudges more efficiently. The idea of a smaller notch is quite exciting but at the same time, it gets spooky if you think about the Facial Recognition features though Vivo has quoted that it scans 1,024 facial feature points to unlock instantly, even in the dark. It's hard to judge that based upon our first look at the device here at the event. If we get the review unit, we would be sure to put the device through its paces to find out more on it in in-depth. However, as an exception, the V11 Pro marches ahead in the fast charging department which was earlier a disappointment in Vivo X21 due to the lack of Fast Charging speeds(Not support). Recently Oppo was the first to bring the Halo Notch to the mobile market segment with their new Oppo F9 Pro. However, the V11 Pro looks much more appealing concerning being value for money due to the In-Display fingerprint scanning mechanism.

Pricing & Availability:

Vivo V11 Pro: 6GB/128GB ROM:  Rs.25,990. 

             Speaking about the availability, it'll be available in the offline market throughout the chain of Vivo's official & partner retail stores. While it'll be exclusively available on Flipkart starting from Sept 2018 itself. There are several offers as well beginning with Free Screen Replacement, Extra Rs.2000/- for HDFC Card users. etc.
