Performance and Memory

Moving on, Vivo V21 and V21 5G is powered by the Dimensity 800U processor. It’s a MediaTek chipset based on a 7nm process. It has two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.4GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The graphics are handled by Mali-G57 GPU. As the moniker suggests, despite featuring the same chipset, only the V21 5G supports 5G connectivity. It has a theoretical peak download speed of up to 2.3Gbps.

Both phones come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Vivo claims that its Extended RAM feature can increase RAM by up to 3GB using internal storage.


Getting to the cameras, Vivo V21 features three cameras at the back and one at the front.  Leading the lineup is a 64MP primary camera that has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for stable shooting. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide sensor. The third camera is a 2MP sensor for macro photography.
