Vivo is reportedly working on a new smartphone in the X-series, and it has already surfaced on Geekbench revealing key specifications and features. Called Vivo X21i, it has now cleared TENAA certification, and the photos have surfaced too, revealing its design.
As we can see in the photos shared by TENAA, the front houses a full screen display with an earpiece, front camera and proximity sensors above the display. On the right, you can see the volume rocker and power / sleep button. The back shows vertical dual camera setup on the top left corner along with an LED flash. At the center, we can see a fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication, and Vivo logo below it.
Vivo X21i specifications and features
Based on the TENAA listing, (spotted by Slashleaks), the Vivo X21i will be powered by a MediaTek P20 octa-core SoC clocked at 2.0GHz, and paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot for further expansion up to 256GB is also expected. The listing also reveals that the smartphone will feature a 6.28-inch OLED display, with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, and a cutout for the notch, just like its predecessor X21.
For photography, the smartphone is expected to feature dual-rear camera setup, featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor, along with a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor, and an LED flash. The X21i is expected to come with a 24-megapixel front camera, which seems like a substantial upgrade over its predecessor’s 12-megapixel camera.

In the software department, the X21i will be mostly run on Android 8.1 Oreo. Connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS and a micro USB port are expected to be in tow. Leaked images show the Matte black variant, but the phone is also listed in Champagne gold and Rose gold.
The Vivo X21i seems to be a decent upgrade over the X21. It managed to log a score of 1,499 and 5,777 in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. There is no word on the official launch date yet, but considering it has cleared TENAA certification, the launch may not be far off.
