Vivo Y21T goes official with Snapdragon 680 SoC, but it's actually a Vivo Y33s
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 actually a Y33s with a different chip, screen, and selfie camera.
According to GSM Arena, the vivo Y33s is powered by the Helio G80 SoC, while the V21T has the Snapdragon 680 at the helm. The diagonal of the 6.58" LCD has been reduced to 6.51", and so is the resolution, from FullHD to HD .
Moreover, vivo swapped the 16MP selfie shooter with an 8MP unit while also ditching the NFC chip.
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.
As per GSM Arena, 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.
Vivo iQOO 9 launch date confirmed
The Chinese technology company Vivo has on Tuesday confirmed that its upcoming Vivo iQOO 9 series will launch on January 5.
According to GSM Arena, the company has also lifted the curtain from the much-anticipated look of the smartphone series.
Reportedly, the new iQOO 9 will retain the BMW M design on the back. It will remain Samsung E5 AMOLED, but this time it will be a second-generation panel. The phone will also be the official KPL device, meaning all competitors will use it in the Arena of Valor King Pro League competition.
Speaking about the cameras, the smartphones will hold on three cameras at the back, in the same L formation.
Like the Vivo X70 Pro series, there will be some text on the remaining side, but this time it will protrude, like the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, but without the extra display on the back. It will add some extra weight on one side when held horizontally, but this might actually be a feature for all the mobile gamers out there, as per GSM Arena.
