Vivo X21 specs and images leaked online ahead of today’s launch

Brace yourself, because we are going to see a lot of iPhone X lookalikes this year

Chinese smartphone brand Vivo is all set to launch the Vivo X21 smartphone today at an event in China. However, just a couple of hours ahead of its launch, the images and specifications of the Vivo X21 have surfaced online showing us what the phone looks like while also confirming some previously leaked specs.


The leaked images of the Vivo X21 show us that it’s yet another smartphone from China that looks like the iPhone X. The Vivo X21 has a notch up top on the front while the back of the phone has a dual camera setup that’s placed in the top-left corner in vertical orientation – just like what we have seen on the iPhone X.


Speaking about specifications, the Vivo X21 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC which is laced with 6 GB RAM and has 128 GB of storage on board. The smartphone features a 6.28-inch display that has a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The configuration of rear and front cameras is unknown, however, what we do know is that the smartphone will ship with a 3200 mAh battery which kind of feels small for a smartphone with display larger than 6-inches.

That said, while the Vivo X21 has a fingerprint scanner at the back, the company will also be launching another variant of the X21 called X21 UD that will have in-display fingerprint scanner just like the X20 Plus UD.
