vivo Reveals The 5G Variant Of Its Ultimate Selfie Smartphone – The V21 5G Exclusive Edition


vivo-01vivo Malaysia launched its V21 5G Exclusive Edition in Malaysia, the 5G variant to vivo’s longstanding V-series smartphones, which has a long history of providing consumers with fashion-forward, camera-focused devices at a competitive price.

The vivo V21 5G Exclusive Edition not only offers leading 5G technology and sophisticated style, but also remarkable front view super night vision capability—a leading feature in the industry. With the front and rear OIS+EIS anti-shake video editing function and various smart home features, V21 5G Exclusive Edition has become one of the most cost-effective and cost worthy cell phones in the era of 5G.

“With the nation making progress towards 5G development and taking steps towards becoming a 5G-enabled country, vivo, being a pioneer in 5G technology, is committed to providing the best mobile experience to consumers and offering products that meet different users’ needs. By harnessing vivo’s innovation in 5G, users can benefit from a future-proof smartphone, along with other powerful features, all housed within a sophisticated, ultra-thin design,” says Mike Xu, vivo Malaysia’s Chief Executive Officer.

During the virtual launch, vivo Malaysia also announced its partnership with Fashionably KL, where the smartphone brand worked closely with four local fashion labels to produce limited edition co-branded items inspired by the V21 Series.

“The vivo V21 series is a new paradigm for smartphone, making the smartphone not merely a device, but an expression of style and even one’s lifestyle. Given the growing demand for sleek and powerful products to complement consumers’ diverse, on-the-go lifestyles, we at vivo wanted to connect with consumers who enjoy the beautiful things in life through the V21 series’ slim, lightweight, fashionable design and unique colour palettes. We are honoured to be working with such talented local designers who were able to accurately emulate our designer’s vision for the V21 series through this exclusive co-branded collection,” says Xu.


The vibrant and stylish limited-series collection includes a one-of-a-kind Boxy T-shirt from Malaysian streetwear label, Neonate; a vivo exclusive cross-body bag from Eversince; an oversized shirt with elongated piping details from Kit Woo; and a bucket hat that comes with carefree brushstrokes in blue colour tones from Cassey Gan.

The V21 5G Exclusive Edition comes equipped with an industry-leading 64MP OIS rear camera, which easily handles any complex or macro photography, while its high-resolution function allows for more room in cropping and recompositing the image during post-production.

In low light conditions, the V21 5G Exclusive Edition will be able to counter any shakes and capture high quality selfies even in dim conditions thanks to the 44MP OIS Superior Nighttime selfie feature. It also marks an industry-first in the V21, for a smartphone to feature the functions of both a Dual Selfie Spotlight and Screen Spotlight in a single device. The unique Dual Selfie Spotlight of the front camera is engineered to level up selfies taken in low light.

Meanwhile, the industry-leading ISOCELL Plus 2G technology pushes the limits of light sensitivity, and night-time selfies will see a leap in quality through the V21’s AI Night Portrait algorithm which gives users the freedom to remain in the limelight all through the night.

Powered by the high Antutu Mark MTK Dimensity 800U processor , the 5G variant smartphone also comes with a collection of smart home features such as Jovi Home and wellbeing applications designed to enhance all aspects of users’ smart lifestyles.

The vivo V21 5G Exclusive Edition now comes with 8 + 3GB Extended RAM and 256GB ROM. In addition to the 8 + 3GB Extended RAM technology that provides consumers the extra freedom of running more apps at a faster speed, the V21 5G Exclusive Edition is also equipped with 256GB ROM, offering a larger storage space to store more apps and selfie-worthy pictures.

The 2.4GHz large core enables faster application startup speed, with a high refresh rate for motion clarity and an enhanced gaming experience. Decked with a 4000mAh (TYP) battery, the 33W FlashCharge technology allows users to power up in no time and stay on the move.

The V21 5G Exclusive Edition sports a sleek, minimalist design in a 7.29mm thin body and with vivo’s signature Dual Tone Step Design to make the rear camera lighter and simpler, the device sets a high standard balancing advanced technology with a sleek physical form.
The front of the smartphone comes with an E3 AMOLED FullView™ Display with 90Hz refresh rate, which enables optimal screen brightness, contrast, color vividness, blue light eye protection, and more. Meanwhile, the back side features brand new AG glass colored with themes inspired by nature — Sunset Dazzle and Dusk Blue.

Lastly, the V21 5G Exclusive Edition smartphone also brings a smoother, more efficient, and more powerful connection experience for browsing and mobile entertainment with vivo’s innovative 5G technology, ideal for users that demand a future-proof smartphone.

The vivo V21 5G Exclusive Edition with Dual-Mode 5G will be able to support both SA and NSA networks, enabling the smartphone to be operated optimally whether on an SA or NSA network.
