Earlier this month, we reported that Vivo is planning to launch its Vivo X21 smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor, in India by the end of this month. Recently, the company started sending out media invites for the launch of Vivo X21 on May 29.
While the company has not revealed the name of the phone, the invite features a big ‘X’, suggesting that the device in question is an ‘X series’ smartphone, likely the Vivo X21 that was introduced in China back in March.
Now, India’s homegrown eCommerce marketplace Flipkart has also confirmed that Vivo is indeed launching the in-display fingerprint sensor version of the X21 in India on May 29th and will be exclusively available through its platform.
The smartphone features a 6.28-inch Full-HD+ display with 19:9 aspect ratio and a screen resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with Adreno 512 GPU, 6GB RAM and two options for internal storage — 64GB and 128GB. There’s also a microSD card slot, enabling users to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
As for the photography department, on the front side, the smartphone features a 12-megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture. On the back side, there’s a 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary lens with f/2.4 aperture.
Connectivity options on the Vivo X21 include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, USB 2.0 with OTG support, and GPS. The smartphone runs FunTouch OS 4.0 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box. It is powered by a 3,200mAh battery and comes with support for fast charging.
In terms of pricing, the Vivo X21 with an under-display fingerprint sensor is priced at 3,598 Yuan (approximately $563 or Rs. 38,384) in China. Recently, the smartphone was launched in Singapore, where it has been priced at SGD 799 (approx. Rs. 39,900). So, we are expecting the Vivo X21 to be priced between Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 40,000 ($514 to $587) in India.
