Sagar, 01 January 2022

The vivo Y21T expected to debut in India on January 3 is already official in Indonesia. However, it's not an entirely new smartphone. It's a modified Y21s with a different chipset.

The vivo Y21s is powered by the Helio G80 SoC, while the Y21T has the Snapdragon 680 at the helm. The screen is a 6.51" LCD with HD+ resolution. For some reason vivo ditched the NFC chip which was present in the s-variant.

The rest of the vivo Y21T's specs include Android 11-based Funtouch OS 12, triple card slot (2 SIM + 1 microSD), side-mounted fingerprint reader, USB-C, 3.5mm headphone jack, 5,000 mAh battery, and 18W charging.

The triple camera system on the AG Matte back consists of 50MP primary, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth units, and there's an 8MP camera inside the notch for selfies and video calls.

The vivo Y21T comes in a single 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration. The former can be extended virtually by 2GB, and the latter up to 1TB using a microSD card.
