Smartphone Vivo X21 received a "bang" and a fingerprint scanner on the screen

Chinese company Vivo has announced another smartphone with a built-in display of a fingerprint scanner - Vivo X21. The standard version of the gadget will be equipped with an "ordinary" fingerprint sensor, but everything in order.

What kind of beast?


Vivo X21 got the design in the style of the iPhone X, even the module of the main camera is made upright. Its 6.28-inch Super AMOLED screen with a cut-out, 19: 9 aspect ratio and Full HD + (2280x1080 pixels), occupies 90.3% of the front panel. The heart of the device was the eight-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, RAM 6 GB, and in addition to a flash drive with a capacity of 64/128 GB, there is a slot for microSD cards up to 256 GB.

The camera on the back side consists of the main 12-megapixel module with the autofocus system Dual Pixel and optics f / 1.8, to create the blur effect, the second 5-megapixel module with aperture f / 2.4 is used. There is an artificial intelligence system for recognizing scenes. The front 12-megapixel camera (also with Dual Pixel technology) supports Vivo's usual "decorations" and face-unlocking function.

It seems that Chinese users prefer Micro USB compatibility to the USB Type-C usability.

The base Vivo X21 fingerprint scanner is located on the back of the glass. Modification with a display sensor X21 UD will cost more. For autonomy the battery responds to 3200 mAh, there is a dual-band Wi-Fi, and the NFC producer again ignored it. The sound is answered by the AK4376A DAC, a 3.5 mm connector on the upper end.

Vivo says about AI, which optimizes the performance of the device and allows you to achieve maximum performance in games. The smartphone comes with a shell of Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

And how much is he worth?


Vivo X21 is available in red, black and white colors. The price depends on the version:

  • 6 + 64 GB - $ 460;
  • 6 + 128 GB - $ 505;
  • 6 + 128 GB, display scanner - $ 570.

In China, sales will begin on March 24, and the top version will be available on March 28. The main competitor of the standard Vivo X21 is the one presented on the eve of Oppo R15 . Even if the devices appear with us, with such prices, they do not shine. If you really like the design of the iPhone X, Asus promises ZenFone 5Z with the top characteristics for 480 euros.

If you want to touch the technologies of the future, then the choice is between Vivo X21 and the predecessor Vivo X20 Plus UD . The price they have about the same. Later, even more frameless Vivo APEX will be released.
