Vivo X21 UD with 6.28-inch notched screen and in-display fingerprint scanner launched for global markets

Chinese smartphone brand Vivo launched the Vivo X20 Plus UD back in January this year. The X20 Plus UD is the world’s first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner. However, later in March, the company launched the Vivo X21 UD which too comes with in-display fingerprint scanner. Until now, the X21 UD was only available in China, but now, it has been launched for global markets as well.


The first country to get the Vivo X21 UD is Singapore. The smartphone is priced at S$799 in the country and will go on sale from May 5 through M1, StarHub and other authorized retailers.

Like we already said, the Vivo X21 UD features in-display fingerprint scanner which is its biggest highlight. To unlock the smartphone, all you have to do is place your finger on the bottom-half portion of the phone’s screen, and it will be unlocked.


That said, the Vivo X21 UD sports a 6.28-inch Super AMOLED display that has an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. However, there’s also a notch up top which some of you might find annoying.

Under the hood, the Vivo X21 UD comes with Snapdragon 660 SoC which is paired with 6 GB RAM. It runs Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo, and, has 128 GB of storage on board.

For photography, there are dual cameras at the back – 12 MP and 5 MP – and on the front, there’s a single 12 MP camera. Moreover, even though the Vivo X21 UD features in-display fingerprint scanner, it also comes with Face Recognition in case your fingerprint doesn’t register on the phone.

Lastly, the Vivo X21 UD ships with a 3200 mAh battery that keeps the lights on.
