vivo V21 5G, v21e to launch in the Philippines this June

Here are the pre order details

We’ve started to notice vivo salespersons advertise the vivo V21 series of smartphones very much ahead of its pre-order launch.

Vivo touts the V21 series to be equipped with the world’s first OIS system in the front camera, with the selfie module packing in a whopping 44 megapixels. This gives you a new ‘Ultra Steady Selfie Video’ which you can use, for example, for your TikTok video creations.

If you need more hardware for gaming, you can literally download more RAM as here’s an option to expand its 8GB RAM by 3GB more with the help of its internal storage.

There’s also the triple rear camera setup led by a 64-megapixel night camera module for better low light photos. It also has a 33-Watt FlashCharge tech, and all of these are housed on a device that’s just 7.29mm thin.

  • 6.44-inch FHD+ (1080×2404) AMOLED display
  • MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G

We saw a handful of vivo promoters starting to promote the vivo v21 series as early as today on social media, maybe as a measure to inflate their pre order numbers.
