After teasing its upcoming launch on social media, vivo officially debuts its newest mid-range contenders for the Philippine market – The V21 Series – vivo V21 5G and V21e 4G.
V21 5G has a 6.44-inch FHD+ HDR10+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and uses a MediaTek Dimensity 800U SoC backed by 8GB+3GB extended RAM and 128GB of storage.
For optics, it’s got a 64MP main camera, an 8MP wide-angle and bokeh lens, and a 2MP Super Macro unit. Upfront, you get a 44MP snapper for selfies and video calls. Camera features include Dual-View, which lets users record videos using both the front and rear cameras at the same time.
V21e 4G, on the other hand, uses the same display but sticks to a 60Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support. Under the hood, you get a Snapdragon 720G along with 8GB+3GB extended RAM and 128GB of storage. It’s got a similar camera configuration as the V21 5G minus OIS.
Both run Funtouch OS 11.1 on top of Android 11 and pack a 4,000mAh battery with 33W fast-charging.
