Vivo X21 UD Expected to be Launched in India on May 29


The USP of this phone is its display fingerprint sensor. Following the same, the company took the wraps off the X21 in China in March.

It is not yet clear if Vivo is planning to launch both the standard version with rear-mounted fingerprint sensor or the top-end version Vivo X21 with under-display fingerprint sensor in India.

The Chinese smartphone maker has already sent out media invites for an event scheduled on May 29 featuring an X with a prominent fingerprint in the centre.

Vivo will launch its one-of-its-kind X21 UD phone in India on May 29, sources have confirmed to India Today Tech.

The Invite delivered by Vivo includes a large "X" that traces in the forefront of an X-series smartphone in India. As of now, there's no clarity whether the company will only launch the Vivo X21 with in-display fingerprint scanner or it plans to also the standard version with fingerprint scanner at the back. The rumor assumes significance with the presence of a big "X", which gives an impression that the upcoming device will be Vivo X21.

As mentioned above, this is the second device to arrive with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

This is a mid-range smartphone that will compete with the affordable flagship smartphones such as OnePlus 6 and Honor 10.

There is now no date or price attached to the Apex and there most likely won't be one, as it's a concept phone. It makes use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor coupled with Adreno 512 GPU and 6GB RAM. On the front is an iPhone X-like top notch that homes the 12-megapixel front camera that has attributes like an f/2.0 aperture, IR match lighting, 3D mapping, and Face Wake facial recognition.

Coming to the camera department, as per the listing, the smartphone will come with a dual camera setup on the back, consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor.

Connectivity options include- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Micro USB 2.0, OTG support, 3.5mm headphone-jack, and Location.
