Vivo X21 with in-display fingerprint sensor to launch in India on May 29

Vivo has scheduled an event in India on May 29 to launch a new smartphone without mentioning the name of the device. The launch invite has a big ‘X’ in it so it will be an ‘X series’ smartphone and is most likely be the Vivo X21 that was launched in China back in March this year with an in-display fingerprint sensor version and a standard version.
