  • Vivo X21

Just a couple months after becoming the first smartphone maker to launch a device featuring an in-display fingerprint sensor, Vivo has carried the technology forward in a sequel device. The regular version will have the fingerprint sensor put at the back.

Alas, it looks like the new devices, like the Vivo X20 UD, will only be available in China, with prices announced exclusively in yuan so far. The company has also announced another variant of the phone named Vivo X21 Screen Fingerprint. The only difference in both the variants is the placement of fingerprint scanner, rest of the specifications remains same.

With a 90.3 percent screen-to-body ratio that probably wouldn't have been possible without the berated notch, an ultra-wide 19:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution, the Vivo X21 doesn't sound very special. Internally, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 660 AIE SoC, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It packs 6GB RAM and comes in two storage options - 64GB and 128GB. There's a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 256GB. The notch houses dual 12MP cameras and IR light for the face unlock as well as normal selfies and video calls.

The X21 has a 3,200 mAh battery with fast-charging support. There is also an integrated AK4376A audio chip for offering Hi-Fi audio output.

Coming to the camera, the Vivo X21 AI Backlight snapper uses artificial intelligence algorithm to make the detection of backlight more accurate and more natural with the Rubik's cube technology.

As for its other specs, it comes with Google's newest Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.0 bringing a complete AI system experience.

The Vivo X21 will be available in Aurora White, Drill Black, and Ruby Red colour options, while the Vivo X21 UD is available in Drill Black and Ruby Red colour options.

While the Vivo X21 costs 3198 Yuan (approx $500 / Rs. 33,000), the Vivo X21 UD is priced at 3598 Yuan (approx $570 / Rs. 37,000). Whereas the X21 UD will be available only in 128 GB variant.
