The Vivo X21i got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) quite recently, and the phone has just been spotted in China Telecom’s database as well. China Telecom, as most of you probably already know, is one of China’s largest carriers, and the phone’s specs, price tag, release date, and specifications were spotted at China Telecom’s database. This smartphone will look basically just like the Vivo X21 which was announced not long ago, so we’re looking at a metal + glass build, a display notch, thin bezels, and a vertically-aligned dual camera setup on the back of the device.
The Vivo X21i will be a mid-range smartphone, the device will be fueled by the MediaTek Helio P60 64-bit octa-core processor, while it will ship with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage (expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card). The phone will sport a 6.28-inch fullHD+ (2280 x 1080) display, while a 3,170mAh battery will also be a part of the package. 12 and 5-megapixel cameras will be included on the back of this smartphone, along with an LED flash, and a fingerprint scanner. A 24-megapixel front-facing camera will also be a part of the package, while the phone will ship with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, and on top of Google’s OS, you’ll get Vivo’s custom UI called Funtouch OS, we’re looking at version 4.0 in this case. A 3.5mm headphone jack will be a part of the package, while the phone will measure 154.37 x 74.98 x 6.99mm, and it will weigh 159 grams.
The device will become available in Aurora White, Polar Night Black, and Ruby Red color variants, according to China Telecom, while it will cost 2,698 Yuan ($426), at least over at China Telecom. The device will be released in the country on May 19, at least according to the provided info, and it is still unknown whether Vivo plans to launch it in any additional markets, as it is possible that the company will push it to India following its launch in China, but it remains to be seen what will happen.
