Another phone with a 6.28 inch FHD+ display with an AMOLED screen, notch and chin. The most exciting feature of this phone is an in-display fingerprint reader, which is a first apparently for commercially available phones. It must be noted that an in-display finger print reader is slightly slower compared to the conventional readers. It uses a Snapdragon 660 processor, hence priced much higher than the other SD 636 phones. The X21 has dual rear camera (12MP+5MP) and a 12MP selfie shooter. The second sim slot is a hybrid slot– sim or memory card. The 3200 mAh battery should last a day. There is still no clarity regarding the presence/absence of an NFC sensor.
In India, it is available exclusively on Flipkart at a price of INR 35,990 right now. 128/6 GB version is the only one available. Considering the One Plus 6 64/6 GB (with SD 845) version priced lesser than the Vivo X21 right now, it appears as if we would be paying a premium largely for the in-display fingerprint reader.
Although the phone it self looks gorgeous, performs well in real life conditions, allows for up-gradation of memory, it would have made more sense if it was priced around the 30k mark in India; at 36k, OP6 seems to be a better buy.
