Vivo V21 series could be launched by the first quarter of 2021, as per a report. A Vivo spokesperson told 91mobiles that the smartphone series is in the works and will be released in the next few months –possibly Q1 2021. No details about the number of models in the lineup and specifications of the upcoming Vivo V21 series have surfaced so far. Vivo V20 Pro, however, is expected to be launched in India next week.
The Vivo V20 series was unveiled in September with three models- Vivo V20 ,Vivo V20 SE, and Vivo V20 Pro. Based on this, it can be speculated that the Vivo V21 series will feature Vivo V21, Vivo V21 SE, and Vivo V21 Pro. The Vivo V20 series was launched in September, around five months after Vivo V19 was launched in April. Thus, the Vivo V21 series showing up in February, five months after the V20, seems likely.
Vivo V20 Pro, meanwhile, is expected to launch in India as soon as December 2, as per a leak. The smartphone was launched in Thailand in September and is expected to come to India in two colour variants – Midnight Jazz and Sunset Melody.
Vivo V20 Pro runs on Funtouch OS 11 based on Android 11 and features a 6.44-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) AMOLED display.
