Vivo X21 with in-display fingerprint scanner launched in India: Price, Specifications

Vivo today launched its Vivo X21 smartphone in India at an event in Delhi. The Vivo X21 comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Apart from under-display fingerprint scanner, the other highlights of the phone are a notch display, dual rear camera, and Snapdragon 660 chipset. Vivo had already teased the launch of the X21 in India earlier this month and also revealed that the smartphone will be a Flipkart-exclusive in the country.
