Vivo might be busy with the upcoming release under its iQOO sub-brand. The company will introduce new gaming flagships in the form of iQOO 9 and iQOO 9 Pro. However, this can’t prevent the brand from bringing new mid-range contenders to the market. In fact, the company is preparing a new budget device for its Y-series dubbed Vivo Y21T. According to reports, the device will be launched in the first week of 2022, most precisely on January 3. The report comes from MySmartPrice citing tipster Ishan Agarwal. According to them, the new mid-range contender is a tweaked Vivo Y21T with an improved camera and chipset.
Vivo Y21T specifications
Vivo will launch the Vivo Y21T in the Indian market during the first week of 2022. The handset will pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC. For those unaware, this is one of the few Qualcomm Snapdragon chips that still offer only 4G connectivity. It’s the natural successor for the Snapdragon 678 which disappeared amidst the crisis in the chipset industry. It’s an efficient chipset with a 6 nm manufacturing process. According to Agarwal, the handset will come in a single variant with 4 GB of RAM. In terms of storage, it will pack 128 GB of Internal Storage, plus a micro SD card slot for further expansion.
The Vivo Y21T will draw its powers from a 5,000 mAh battery with 18 W fast-charging support. We expect a USB Type-C for charging and data transfer. In terms of optics, the handset sports a triple-camera setup. There is a primary camera with 50 MP resolution, and that is basically the only useful sensor here. The other two sensors haven’t been disclosed. But we can only expect them to be a 2 MP macro snapper and a 2 MP depth sensor.
Other details on the handset are yet to be confirmed. If it’s coming in the next week, then we expect Vivo to at least teaser the smartphone launch or list it. The company usually does low-profile launches for these handsets, but we expect confirmation to come soon anyway. According to the report, the handset may stick with a waterdrop notch solution. Giving to the low-end nature it will use an IPS LCD screen with an HD+ resolution. At this point, it’s hard to determine if the display will have any sort of high refresh rate. The rumors say it will cost around INR 15,000 in the Asian country.
