Last week we got our first taste of the Vivo V21 series thanks to the leaks. The standard V21 is expected to include a 5G chip and an OIS-supported front camera. A Vivo V1e was also confirmed in the leak, but there was nothing about the specs or features. However, a recent entry on Google Play Console has shed more light on the V21e, and it appears it could be based on an iQOO smartphone.

The Vivo V21e is said to be based on the iQOO U3, as the listing shows. Launched in China in December 2020, the iQOO U3 is essentially an affordable mid-range smartphone. In the V21 series, it arrives as the only 4G model besides the V21 5G. There is no information yet on a V21 Pro, but Vivo could release it later in the year.

Vivo V21e specifications leak
Based on the Google Play Console listing, the Vivo V21e relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G chipset. This is the same chipset that the V20 uses, which was later upgraded to the Snapdragon 730G chipset. The V21e is also listed with a 1080p display with a pixel density of 440 PPI. It bears the code name of V2061A, which is similar to the code name of the iQOO U3. Also Read – Vivo V21 5G specifications revealed ahead of launch to get 44MP OIS selfie camera
If the V21e is based on iQOO U3 then it’s easy to judge the rest of the specs. The 1080p screen should measure 6.5 inches and will likely use an IPS LCD screen with a notch on the top. There may be a 5000 mAh battery that will support an 18W fast charging solution. A dual-camera setup is likely to be on the rear, with a 48-megapixel unit as the main sensor. The front camera could have an 8 megapixel sensor.
On the other hand, the Vivo V21 5G is expected to get a MediaTek Dimensity chipset. It is also expected to get a mega upgrade to its front camera – a 44MP eye autofocus selfie camera with an OIS system.
Recently, Vivo launched the X60 series in India, consisting of three models. The X60 and X60 Pro are based on the Snapdragon 870 chipset, while X60 Pro + relies on a Snapdragon 888 chipset. All three phones feature Zeiss optics, with the X60 Pro and X60 Pro + getting the gimbal stabilization system.
