Chinese brand Vivo has officially launched its flagship smartphone with fingerprint sensor on screen – Vivo X21. It comes with premium glass design and middle range hardware under the hood. Let’s take a look at the device’s specs, price and details.
Vivo X21 features a 6.28-inches Super AMOLED touchscreen display with 2280 x 1080 pixels resolution (Full HD+) and the display design is similar to the iPhone X. The dimensions of Vivo X21 are 154.45×74.78×7.37mm.
For performance-wise, it is powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor and 6GB of RAM memory. The internal storage of Vivo X21 is 64GB and 128GB. Further, it also comes with microSD slot for storage expansion. The 6GB RAM memory is definitely more than enough for daily usage, but it would be better if the processor is Snapdragon 845 high end processor. The performance of Snapdragon 660 is somehow on par with Snapdragon 820 series a few years back.
This 6.28-inches device has a dual camera module on rear panel that includes a 12MP and 5MP cameras while the front-facing camera is another 12MP shooter. The camera features include Dualpixel dual-core sensor and Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence Engine. With the Dualpixel feature, the 12MP shooter on the back is able to capture up to 24MP quality.
For the connection, Vivo X21 is a 4G LTE-enabled smartphone and supports dual-SIM. While most of the new devices in the market are packed with USB Type-C port, Vivo X21 still comes with microUSB port. It remains unknown on the reason Vivo still refuse to introduce USB Type-C port. Other than the microUSB port, it also has 3.5mm audio jack that is no longer available on some of the high end flagships.
Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android Oreo version is the operating system of Vivo X21. As for the power, it does come with 3,200mAh non-removable battery.
For the fingerprint sensor, Vivo X21 is different from other devices as the sensor is on the screen. It also comes with the trendy face unlock. Other notable features include Jovi AI, AI smart photo, AKM DAC and etc. The colors available are black, white and red and it depends on the selected markets. Vivo is the official sponsor of FIFA World Cup in Russia this year and the box of Vivo X21 is printed with the logo of the tournament.
