Other hardware features includes a notched 6.28″ FHD+ Super AMOLED FullView display that supports P3 colors, a 3200mAh battery and surprisingly, it still uses a MicroUSB port for charging.
Like other Vivo’s smartphones, photography plays an important role on the Vivo X21, the main camera’s dual lens system comprises of a dual pixel 12MP f/1.8 sensor supported by a secondary 5MP sensor for measuring depth information, which the primary sensor is capable of producing clear photos in low light, the familiar AI Scene Recognition feature is also present for the main camera, it is able to detect and identify over 18 tags and 140 scenarios such as portraits, food and plants. The front camera also captures 12MP selfies with dual pixel technology, it is supported by the Vivo’s AI Face Beauty and AI HDR features to deliver naturally beautified shots.
