The VIVO X20 series handsets pronounced furor. Probably, the best of them was the VIVO X20 Plus UD that was the world’s first smartphone using an under-display fingerprint recognition technology. However, we didn’t wait long to see its successor. The VIVO X21 with improved features was uncovered on March 19. It has already managed to become a best-seller breaking all the records. But the manufacturer decided to boost the sales launching the special black gold variant with a luxurious look. The VIVO X21 Black Gold version was announced on April 19, and today it went on sale officially. The regular model is priced at 3298 yuan, while the under-display fingerprint model costs 3698 yuan. Thus they cost 100 yuan more than the rest of color options.
The VIVO X21 Black Gold variant should be considered as the most attractive version. As the name suggests, the phone is based on the original Ice Diamond Black color elements. The only difference is the replacement of the silver design elements with gold elements. As a result, we have a luxurious phone.
On the other hand, the rest of features remain the same. The VIVO X21 Black Gold sports a 6.28-inch full-screen that holds the 12MP f/2.0 selfie snapper coupled with an IR fill light to allow for fast Face Wake 2.0 with 3D mapping. On the back, it carries a dual-camera with 12MP f/1.8 and a 5MP f/2.4 sensors. In terms of hardware, the handset is packed with a Snapdragon 660 chip paired with a 6GB of RAM, two storage options, 64GB and 128GB, and a 3200mAh battery supporting fast charging. Android Oreo 8.1 runs the hardware with Funtouch OS 4.0 on top.
