vivo x21 live updates

We have been hearing about the in-display fingerprint scanner for a couple of years now. While Apple and Samsung were expected to deploy the tech, it is Vivo who managed to integrate the tech first in its smartphone, the Vivo X21. Basically, the smartphone doesn’t have a physical button, and the fingerprint sensor is instead placed under the display. This makes the screen itself a fingerprint sensor. After launching the smartphone in China, the Vivo X21 is all set to launch in India today.

The event will be live streamed on Vivo’s official YouTube and Facebook channels at 12:30PM. The Vivo X21 is expected to be sold exclusively via Flipkart, and we can expect a bunch of launch offers that buyers can take advantage of, including no cost EMI. The launch event will kick off soon, and we will keep you updated with all the key pointers here. So stay tuned.
