In China, Vivo silently launched the “upgraded” variant of the X21, the X21i. Instead of Snapdragon 660, Vivo used MediaTek’s Helio P60 SoC with dual-core A.I. processor and Mali-G72 MP3 GPU on the X21i.
In addition, Vivo also upgraded its front facing camera. It now has a bigger 24MP selfie sensor with A.I. Face Beauty technology. According to Vivo it can recognize skin tone, gender, environment and applies the most suitable filter.
