Continuing its partnership with FIFA, Vivo has today officially launched a new variant of Vivo X21 — the Vivo X21 FIFA World Cup 2018 Extraordinaire Edition. The smartphone will be available in two color options — Classic Blue and Victory Red.
And it’s not just the name, the phone comes with an extraordinary design as well. The back panel of the smartphone has a four-dimensional gradient printing and a fancy pattern on top. At the bottom of the back panel, the company has opted to embed a three-dimensional 2018 FIFA World Cup logo.
This Vivo X21 World Cup Edition smartphone also comes with an under-display fingerprint sensor and the company has included a specially designed new visual effect indicating the unlock function. Further, the company’s own Jovi AI-based smart assistant can provide World Cup game previews, live links and notification/alarm for the gameplay.
Additionally, the smartphone also comes with a customized user interface, which has accents of red, blue and gold colors. The company has aimed to provide a new user interface that is simple, bright and visually appealing. Along with this, the phone comes with custom World Cup wallpapers and a custom Dusha TM font.
Besides this Vivo X21 FIFA World Cup 2018 Extraordinaire Edition, the company is also offering a limited edition custom-made protective shell case for the phone, representing Germany, Argentina, Brazil, and Portugal. To make the protective shell, the company claims to have used layered water paste printing and a matt UV topcoat process, which Vivo says creates strong color impact and excellent texture.
