The Vivo V21 5G supports the 5G wireless network, as the device’s name suggests. Fortunately, all SIM card slots will connect to the 5G network at the same time. In addition, the Vivo V21 5G has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
Vivo V21 5G Camera:
When it comes to cameras, the Vivo V21 5G has a triple camera setup at the back. The first is a 64-MegaPixel primary sensor with OIS and video recording at 4K/30fps. A second camera has an ultrawide resolution of 8-MegaPixel. A 2-MegaPixel macro lens serves as the third sensor.
The Vivo V21 5G’s 44-MegaPixel OIS-equipped front-facing camera distinguishes it from the competition. It is one of the few phones on the market that can record in 4K/30fps for the selfie camera.
