Vivo has just launched two new smartphones of the most peculiar, the Vivo V21 and Vivo V21 5G. For practical purposes, the two mobiles are exactly the same except for the fact that, as its name indicates, the Vivo V21 5G is compatible with 5G networks, while the Vivo V21 is a terminal with 4G. In any case, the most striking thing is not the connectivity, but its selfie camera.

And it is that Vivo has implemented in its new devices a 44 megapixel front camera with optical image stabilization. This is not something we see every day in mid-range mobiles like the ones we are dealing with today. We are going to get to know them better right away, but not without first highlighting that they have been launched in Malaysia and that, for now, there is no news about their arrival on the international.

Light and thin, but without sacrificing hertz

We start with the aesthetic section. The Vivo V21 has a simple rear available in holographic (blue/pink) and black with purple hues. We found nothing beyond the company name and the rear camera module, where we found three lenses and the LED flash. Its slim thickness, of only 7.29 millimeters, and its weight, of 176 grams, is striking. On paper, they are light and fairly thin terminals.

If we turn the device over and take a look at its screen we will see a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel with FullHD + resolution (2,404 x 1,080 pixels) and 90 Hz that, curiously, does not have a hole in the screen, but has a small U-shaped notch, aka a small notch. Under the screen we find the fingerprint sensor, as expected.

MediaTek and 44 MP front camera

Vivo V21 and Vivo V21 5G

We thus move on to the engine. The new Vivo V21 and V21 5G share the processor, a MediaTek Dimensity 800U. The main difference is that one is compatible with 5G networks (and promises up to 2.3 Gbps of download speed) and the other is compatible with 4G networks only. It is accompanied by 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM, although Vivo has implemented a technology called Extended Ram that can take up to 3 GB of external memory to use as RAM. The internal storage is 128 GB UFS 2.2.

And so we come to the camera. On the rear we find a fairly well-known and frequent configuration: a 64-megapixel main sensor with OIS , an eight-megapixel wide-angle and a two-megapixel macro. Nothing out of the ordinary. The funny thing is in the front camera, where we find a 44 megapixel sensor with double LED flash (hidden in the frame) and optical stabilization.

This flash works in video recording (something focused on apps like Tiktok, for example). The camera, in addition, is capable of recording videos in 4K, but from Vivo they warn that OIS and EIS (optical and digital stabilization, respectively) are not compatible with video recording in 4K at 30 FPS , so it is expected that only can be used when recording videos in FullHD or lower.

Versions and price of the Vivo V21 and Vivo V21 5G

Vivo V21 and Vivo V21 5G

As we indicated previously, the Vivo V21 and Vivo V21 5G have been presented in Malaysia and, For now we only know the price of the standard Vivo V21, which is 1,599 ringit, which is approximately 322 euros. To know the price of the Vivo V21 5G, you will have to wait a bit.
