Vivo X21 Philippines Price is PHP 29,999, Full Specs, Actual Unit Photos

On Thursday night - June 21, 2018 - at the Grand Ballroom of Okada Manila, hotshot Chinese handset brand Vivo Mobile officially launched their newest high-end Android smartphone in our country as of writing.

Priced at PHP 29,999, the Vivo X21 sports a slew of useful and gorgeous features that will surely prove attractive to meticulous mobile consumers who want to enjoy a premium on the devices they purchase.

Vivo X21

When you first see and hold Vivo X21, I'm sure you will be smitten by its sleek, svelte, and ultra-slim glass-metal-glass design identity that effortlessly exudes an air of corporate sophistication and understated elegance.

Looks aside, though, the most innovative feature of this release would have to be the In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, which is the first of its kind from any handset maker.

This technology, which is currently unique to this Vivo smartphone, integrates the Fingerprint Sensor in a specific portion within the screen itself. This, along with virtual navigation keys, allowed the company to make the screen taller by removing the home button in front where the said sensor had been usually placed by manufacturers.

Previously, Vivo worked around the dilemma of increasing the screen size and removing the home button while still keeping the fingerprint scanner by placing the sensor at the back. This, however, made the scanner less convenient to use, especially when the handset is placed on a table.

Essentially, Vivo's In-Display Fingerprint Scanner made the sensor more easily accessible by the user. It's a small enhancement that makes a big difference in daily use.

Another highlight of this model is its bright, clear, and crisp 6.28-inch FullHD+ SuperAMOLED display panel, which makes watching movies, viewing photos, and reading blog articles more enjoyable even if you are doing it outdoors, under direct sunlight.

Above the display, we'll find the 12 MegaPixel f/2.0 Dual Pixel camera that delivers more natural looking selfies after skin clearing -- thanks to Vivo's AI Face Beauty technology, which automatically figures out the user's gender, skin tone, and the ambient lighting condition. The camera app also integrates AR Stickers that lets you add fun effects to your selfies and groufies with friends and loved ones.

At the back, Vivo X21 features a Dual Camera Module made up of a 12 MegaPixel f/1.8 Dual Pixel camera plus a secondary 5 Megapixel shooter. This combo allows the device to add virtual Bokeh Effect to Portrait Shots, wherein the background is blurred nicely to highlight the subject. On top of that, users can add lighting effects to portrait images to further enhance the look of each shot before you sharing on social media or printing.

Under the hood, this high-end model is powered by top-notch innards including the 14nm Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor - which is good enough to deliver a smooth intense 3D mobile gaming experience, a whopping 6GB of RAM for seamless multitasking, and a sizable 128GB of internal storage that can even be augmented via the hybrid nanoSIM slot that can also take in a microSD card.

Powered by a fast charging 3,200 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, Dual SIM and 4G-enabled Vivo X21 is now available at all Vivo Concept Stores as well as authorized retail channels online and in malls across the Philippines.

Again, the complete retail package - that includes the unit itself, the pair of earphones with in-ear silicone buds, microUSB to USB cable, Quick Start Guide, Travel Charger, SIM Card Tray Ejector Pin, Warranty Card, and Soft Gel Case with Matte Sides - sells for PHP 29,999. I believe Vivo X21 will initially be available in one color in our country, which is Black.
