While the company had also launched the Vivo V21e in the Malaysian market, the smartphone has not made it to the Indian shores.

Although the new 5G phone in India packs a ton of features, the USP of the device is its 44MP OIS-equipped selfie camera. Let’s check out all the details, including the Vivo V21 5G price in India.
