The specifications and design of the Vivo Y21e came to light prior to an official announcement on the internet. The Vivo phone appears to be the company’s new mid-range option in the Y series. The Vivo Y21e appears to have a waterdrop-style display notch and two rear cameras. The smartphone is also said to have two different color options – with a gradient on both. Vivo has not yet revealed any formal details about the Y21e. However, given the amount of information that has surfaced online, it is reasonable to expect the phone to receive official confirmation in the coming days.
In cooperation with tipster Ishan Agarwal, 91Mobiles reported the alleged details of the Vivo Y21e. The smartphone renders suggest that it might come in shades of blue and white, and it might feature a thin chin on the front. There may also be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Vivo Y21e specifications (expected)
In terms of specs, the source claimed that the Vivo Y21e will run Android 12 and be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC. The phone is also said to have a 13MP main camera on the back and 18W fast charge support. In terms of connectivity, the Vivo Y21e may have a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It could also include a single speaker grille and primary microphone on the bottom.
In particular, this is not the first time we’ve heard of the Vivo Y21e. The phone appeared on the benchmark website Geekbench in November with the model number V2140. At that time, the same model number was also discovered on the IMEI certification page.
According to the details surfaced on Geekbench, the Vivo phone could contain at least 3GB of RAM. The benchmark listing also showed the mobile phone with Android 11 – contrary to what was now reported online.
Earlier this week, Vivo expanded its Y series to include the Vivo Y33T in India. The smartphone was a slight upgrade from the Vivo Y21T, which only debuted in the country last week.
