Vivo launched the X21 in China earlier this year, and now it seems the company is getting ready to come out with an updated variant of the smartphone. A Vivo smartphone was spotted on GeekBench, and the speculation is that it will be called the X21i.
The Vivo X21i is said to come with the MediaTek Helio P20 octa-core processor with clock speeds of 1.99GHz. It also features 6GB of RAM. With this hardware, the GeekBench listing shows the device scoring 1,499 and 5,777 in single-core and the multi-core tests respectively. The X21, on the other hand, featured a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with the same 6GB of RAM.
Pricing and other specifications of the phone haven’t been revealed yet, but we don’t expect them to differ much from the X21. The X21 comes with a 6.28-inch screen with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. The phone features a screen-to-body ratio around 85 percent. There are dual 12-megapixel cameras at the back, all equipped with Dual Pixel technology. There is also a 12-megapixel camera at the front.

The X21 comes with Android Oreo, with Vivo’s proprietary FunTouch OS 4.0 layered on top of it. That’s something we can also expect of the X21i. Of course, all of this can only be confirmed once the phone officially launches in China. We’re not sure when that may be, but we will update the space the moment we have more information. So, stay tuned.
