Vivo Y21 launched at a mid-range pricing segment in India with dual cameras and a big battery cell. The brand has announced a device in the same Y-series of smartphones last month dubbed as Vivo Y72.
Although the Y72 was a 5G device with a Snapdragon processor, the Y21 is a 4G device with a MediaTek processor at the same pricing.
The device comes with a water-drop notch on the display and the back features a dual-camera setup in a lifted-up module with a square cut-out.
Most of the smartphones from Vivo are offline-centric devices and Y21 is no exception. Even though they get most of the sales from the offline market, Vivo makes their devices available on online platforms as well for sale.
