After launching the X60 series in India recently, Vivo has now expanded its V series by launching the new Vivo V21 5G in India today. The device sits atop the Vivo V20 2021, which the company quietly launched in India late last year. The Vivo V21 5G boasts a sleek design along with the same 44MP selfie camera as its predecessor. However, this time Vivo has improved it by adding OIS to the front camera.
So, let’s take a look at the key specs and features of the Vivo V21 5G before moving on to availability and pricing in India.
Vivo V21 5G launched in India
Starting with the sleek design, the device comes with a minimum thickness of 7.29mm, making it the thinnest smartphone in India. On the front, there is a 6.44-inch Samsung E3 Full-HD + Samsung AMOLED panel with a 90Hz refresh rate.
Under the hood, the Vivo V21 includes the MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset that is based on the 7nm TSMC FinFET process. It comes with an octa-core design and an integrated ARM Mali-G57 MC3 GPU on board. The chipset is paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
Now, in addition to physical RAM, Vivo has implemented, what it is calling, an extended RAM technology that can increase RAM from 8GB to 11GB by adding 3GB of internal memory. This will allow users to keep up to 20 applications open at the same time.
As for the optics, the Vivo V21 5G features a triple camera setup on the AG matte glass back panel. The camera module includes a 64MP main lens with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro sensor.
As for the 44MP selfie camera inside the U-shaped notch, Vivo has added OIS technology to him, making the Vivo V21 5G the world’s first smartphone with an OIS selfie snapper. Also, there are two small external lights on the top edge to make nighttime selfies easier to click.
Despite being one of the slimmest devices on the market, the Vivo V21 5G packs a 4,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.
Apart from that, the device also comes with support for 5G networks, Bluetooth 5.1, an in-display fingerprint sensor, a microSD slot to expand storage up to 1TB, and a USB-C port for charging and data transfer.
It comes in three unique color variants, namely Sunset Dazzle, Dusk Blue, and Arctic White. The device runs Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 11 out of the box.

The Vivo V21 5G comes in two configurations: 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. Hence, the basic variant is priced at Rs 29,990, while the high-end variant is priced at Rs 32,990.
