Pioneering In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology on a smartphone, Vivo Philippines just launched its latest flagship phone… the Vivo X21-that will surely give its users a futuristic unlocking experience.

It was a star-studded launch as  Vivo Philippines’ celebrity ambassadors and influencers were present in the event and they even shared their experiences, highlighting the cool featrures of  Vivo’s newest flagship phone.

I do have my share of experience when I get to test the Vivo X21 during its launch. I mentioned earlier regarding its In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology feature, oh boy, that was really fast. Please see my IG post to see what i’m talking about.

SECURITY? To ensure user expectations for this technology are being met, Vivo has tasked its teams to innovate and perfect this technology on the new X21 to provide a reliable and secure unlocking solution to all consumers.

Vivo X21 has a 6.28-inch 19:9 FHD+ FullView Display. With a super slim notch, and 1.66mm side bezels, it achieves a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio to provide a wider viewing experience compared to other similar-sized phones. Vivo has even enhanced its software to support the notch and developed a notification bar that maintains an immersive experience. Maximizing the beauty of the display, Vivo X21 uses P3 display color management technology and supports a P3 wide color gamut to ensure more accurate, natural and saturated colors.

Taking phone design to the extraordinary, X21 has ditched the metal body for a new 3D glass back cover. Every arc and curve on the back cover are ergonomically optimized to ensure comfort in your hand, with only 3.1mm thick in the middle. More than just smooth to the touch X21 uses a new color-blending technique, which creates a unique luster that creates its elegant look.Vivo X21 Now Available in PH!x21 continues Vivo’s heritage of photography leadership, featuring 12MP (24 million photographic units) front and rear cameras with Dual Pixel Sensors. The secondary rear camera is 5MP. Thanks to the larger photographic area of each pixel, X21’s camera significantly boosts picture clarity. On top of this, the X21 features fast focusing technology that rivals DSLRs, which enables it to focus fast and capture depth of field data in every pixel.

Vivo X21’s Al Scene Recognition not only identifies night, sports, vibration or back light scenarios but it can also detect and identify 18 tags and 140 scenarios such as portraits, food and plants as t shoots. It then actively adjusts photography settings and effects to make it easy for the user to capture a great photo.

System level optimization enhances mobile entertainment

Hardware forms the basis of any user experience. The X21 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660AIE chip which can effectively utilize CPU resources for complex Al and neural computing. Its 6GB RAM+ 128GB ROM increases the speed of launching, loading and switching even large and complex mobile games. With the large storage space, users can go wild downloading all the applications, movies and photos they want without the hassle of clearing space.

While gaming, the system will automatically adjust the CPU to optimize performance according to the game’s resources for a smoother gaming experience. The Game Mode on X21 even prevents accidental touch operations, ensuring gamers only make the moves they intended. X21 continues Vivo’s Hi-Fi legacy and houses the AK4376A audio chipset. It is also equipped with Deep Field technology, which was developed by Vivo to provide panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects and various environmental audio effects, allowing users to tailor their audio experience.
