Ahead of the official announcement, the specifications and design of Vivo Y21e have surfaced on the web. It looks like the Vivo phone is the company’s new mid-range option in the Y series. The Vivo Y21e appears to sport a waterdrop-style display notch and dual rear cameras. The smartphone is said to have two different color options – with gradient finish on both. Vivo has not yet given any formal information about the Y21e. However, considering the amount of information that has surfaced online, the phone can be expected to get an official confirmation in the coming days.
In collaboration with tipster Ishan Agarwal, 91Mobiles has reported alleged details about the Vivo Y21e. Smartphone renders suggest that it could come in Blue and White colors and could include a slim chin on the front. There could also be a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
Vivo Y21e Specifications (Expected)
On the specifications front, the source claimed that the Vivo Y21e will run on Android 12 and will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC. The phone is also said to have a 13-megapixel primary camera at the back and support for 18W fast charging. In terms of connectivity, the Vivo Y21e may include a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It could also include a single speaker grille and a primary microphone at the bottom.
This is especially not the first time we are hearing about the Vivo Y21e. The phone had appeared on benchmark website Geekbench in November with model number V2140. At that time the same model number was also spotted on the IMEI certification site.
As per the details that have surfaced on Geekbench, the Vivo phone could include at least 3GB of RAM. The benchmark listing also showed the handset with Android 11 – contrary to what is now reported online.
Earlier this week, Vivo expanded its Y series by launching the Vivo Y33T in India. The smartphone arrived as a minor upgrade to the Vivo Y21T that debuted in the country only last week.
