Vivo’s latest Apex concept phone got a lot of attention at the MWC. The inbuilt fingerprint reader and the motorized selfie camera were hailed as innovative features. Now, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer has launched the Vivo X21. It is also worth mentioning that the Vivo X21 will be offered in two variants, one with an in-screen fingerprint sensor (X21UD) and the other with a normal fingerprint sensor at the back.
The Vivo X21 comes equipped with a 6.28-inch FHD+ display that offers a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9 (thanks to the notch upfront). Design-wise, the Vivo X21 looks like any other bezel-less phone with the screen taking up a majority of the front space along with the infamous notch. Powering the Vivo X21 is an Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 clocked at 2.2GHz and paired with 6GB/8GB of RAM. So Vivo will be offering two variants, 6GB/128GB and 6GB/256GB. On top of that, the phone also comes with an expandable microSD card slot.
On the camera front, the Vivo X21 packs a dual rear camera setup. The rear camera is made up of two 12-Megapixel camera lens units with an LED flash. The front camera is also a dual camera setup and consists of two 12-Megapixel lenses with front flash. Keeping pace with its competitors the Vivo X21 also comes with a face unlock feature.
That apart Vivo has introduced Jovi, a smart assistant that relies on Artificial Intelligence. Audio options on the Vivo X21 include the AK4376A HiFi chip. Connectivity options include the usual 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11, Dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth, microUSB, and GPS. The device is backed by a 3,200mAh battery and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo-based FunTouch OS 4.0.
