Vivo is back with a whole new range of mid-range smartphones, the Vivo V21 . We present them to you.
Vivo has established itself over the years as a major player in the telephony market. An actor to whom we owe many innovations. Some of you will no doubt think of the gimbal present on board the Vivo X51 , but the brand was also among the first to offer a pop-up camera on the Vivo NEX S.
But it is not only on the top of the range that the manufacturer knows how to innovate and it proves it precisely with the Vivo V21.
This new range consists of three devices, and more precisely the Vivo V21 5G, the Vivo V21 and the Vivo V21e.
Vivo V21 5G and Vivo V21, smartphones geared towards selfies
The Vivo V21 5G and Vivo V21 are very close to each other and they inherit much of the same look and size. Borderless screen, matte look back, rectangular photo module, they take the visual identity of the X51 and they are not lacking in charm. On the other hand, the punch leaves its place in a notch, in the shape of a drop of water.
This notch, precisely, hides a precious asset. More precisely, a 44 million pixel sensor crowned with optics with OIS and autofocus. The Vivo V21 will therefore be able to focus on your face and their optical stabilization system will help them to avoid camera shake. This will also translate into better overall performance, especially in low light conditions.
Here, Vivo also seems to have gone far enough, because the front camera is also accompanied by two LEDs that will be used by the night portrait mode, a mode that will ensure you better shots when the light runs out.
At the rear, there is a photo module made up of three sensors: a 64 mpx sensor crowned with a wide angle equipped with an OIS, an 8 mpx sensor associated with an ultra wide angle and a reserved 2 mpx sensor in macro shots.
The Vivo V21 do not demerit on the rest of their technical sheet.
They are thus equipped with a 6.44-inch AMOLED screen capable of reaching a definition in Full HD + and a refresh rate of 90 Hz, with a touch of HDR10 + as a bonus. SoC side, Vivo turned to a Dimensity 800U, a chip engraved in 7 nm and composed of eight cores divided into two clusters. All with 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and 4000 mAh batteries compatible with Flash Charge, for 33W charging power.
A Vivo V21e for the smallest budgets
The Vivo V21e is more modest, and more accessible. The screen remains the same, but it loses HDR10 + in favor of HDR10.
There are also changes at the SoC level. Exit the Dimensity chip, Vivo has opted this time for a Snapdragon 720G. No change on the rest of the configuration, at least with the exception of the photographic component.
If the rear module does not change and the front camera still reaches 44 million pixels, it unfortunately loses the OIS and the two LEDs.
Vivo has not yet mentioned a European launch, but we know that the Vivo V21 and Vivo V21e will be offered, in Malaysia, at 1600 and 1200 MYR, that is to say at a price between 322 and 254 € without taking into account the taxes s 'applying to our market.
