Vivo X21 with in-display fingerprint scanning has become available for pre-bookings in India ahead of its formal launch on Tuesday, May 29. Pre-bookings are live through Vivo's online store, and the company is charging Rs. 2,000 as the advanced pre-booking amount. Customers who pre-book the Vivo handset can avail a bunch of exclusive pre-booking offers, including a five percent cashback and no-cost EMI options. Notably, price details of the Vivo X21 haven't been revealed in the country, but Vivo earlier this week confirmed that the new model will go on sale through Flipkart. The handset debuted in China back in March and was introduced in international markets for the first time earlier this month. Notably, the Vivo X21 variant being launched in India features an under-display fingerprint sensor, which is called the Vivo X21 UD in China. Vivo is evidently looking to do away with the UD branding for India, where it can be expected to launch only one variant of the smartphone - foregoing the variant without the under-display fingerprint sensor.
If you can want to pre-book the Vivo X21, visit Vivo's online store and then make the advanced payment of Rs. 2,000. After that, the company will send you a coupon worth the value of your advanced payment that you'll be able to apply alongside paying the balance amount to purchase the Vivo X21 on May 29. You'll also get a gift voucher worth Rs. 1,000 from Ferns N Petals. Vodafone Red subscribers are also entitled to receive one-year device security and 280GB of additional data. Similarly, the online store has listed that the pre-booking comes with a five percent cashback offer for customers using an SBI credit card and includes no-cost EMI options for up to 12 months.
While the India price of the Vivo X21 hasn't been announced yet, the handset is already available in China with a price tag of CNY 3,598 (approximately Rs. 37,100). The smartphone was also launched in Singapore at SGD 799 (around Rs. 39,900).
The dual-SIM Vivo X21 runs FunTouch OS 4.0 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and features a 6.28-inch full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The touchscreen panel sports an in-display fingerprint scanning technology that makes it a furturistic model.
