Internals, Hardware

Speaking of power, the Vivo X21 ticks with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AI chipset. The chipset is also coupled by a beefy 6GB of RAM for faster app launching and multitasking purposes. It could also utilize CPU resources for complex AI and neural computing. There’s also a large 128GB storage space intended for the users’ multimedia files. 


In terms of software, the Vivo X21 is powered by Android 8.1 Oreo with the company’s proprietary skin FunTouch OS 4.0 on top. The software highlights some important features like the Game Mode which prevents accidental touches, and ensures the gaming experience are optimized when pulling up specific titles.

Hi-Fi Sound

Vivo X21 continues Vivo’s Hi-Fi legacy and houses the AK4376A audio chipset. It is also equipped with Deep Field technology that provides panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects and various environmental audio effects. This allows users to tailor their audio experience. 

Display, Design

When it comes to the display, the Vivo X21 has a 6.28-inch 19:9 FHD+ FullView Super AMOLED screen. It comes with a slim notch, and 1.66mm side bezels. Summing it up, the front panel tallies a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio that provides a wider viewing experience compared to other similar-sized phones.

Vivo has even enhanced its software to support the notch and developed a notification bar that maintains an immersive experience. Maximizing the beauty of the display, Vivo X21 uses P3 display color management technology and supports a P3 wide color gamut to ensure more accurate, natural and saturated colors.

The Vivo X21 has a new 3D glass back cover. The curves and arcs are ergonomically optimized to ensure comfort on the hand. It is very stunning when seen on the wild.


Vivo X21 is also a winner in terms of the camera. It features 12MP (24 million photographic units) front and rear cameras with Dual Pixel Sensors. The secondary rear camera is 5MP. Thanks to the larger photographic area of each pixel, X21’s camera significantly boosts picture clarity. 

On top of this, the X21 features fast focusing technology that rivals DSLRs, which enables it to focus fast and capture depth of field data in every pixel.
