The dual-SIM Vivo Y21L sports a 4.5 inch FWVGA (480x854 pixels) display and and runs on the company's Funtouch OS 2.5 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The smartphone has 5-megapixel rear camera with flash, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The latest addition to Vivo's lineup of affordable smartphones comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage that's expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).
