Vivo X21 spotted on Geekbench, will feature Snapdragon 660 SoC, Android 8.1 Oreo

Vivo X21 has been confirmed by Vivo through an official teaser, but the company is yet to reveal specifications about the upcoming smartphone.

The official specifications may take some time to arrive, but with a prototype of the phone spotted on benchmarking website Geekbench, things have become somewhat clear as to what the smartphone could have.

The Geekbench listing suggests that the Vivo X21 will run Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. Further, there is a strong possibility that the Vivo X21 will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, much like predecessor X20, clocked at 1.84GHz. The phone is also expected to sport up to 6GB of RAM.

X21 has a single-core score of 1608 and a multi-core score of 5852, which seems to be decent enough for a mid-range phone.

The phone is suggested to be Vivo’s second smartphone – after the X20 Plus UD – to feature an under-display fingerprint sensor, giving it a bezel-less design.And, once again, other specifications are not yet out in the open. More details are expected to get leaked/ reported in the days closer to the launch date.

Separately, the Vivo V9 is slated for launch in India on March 23. With an iPhone X-like notch and vertical dual rear camera setup, the Vivo V9 has already been listed on Vivo’s official e-commerce portal in the country. The upcoming phone is suggested to sport a a large 6.3-inch full-HD+ IPS display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB inbuilt storage. There is also a 3260mAh battery backing the internals.
