Vivo V21e 5G with MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC spotted on Geekbench, BIS listing suggests India launch imminent

Highlights
  • Vivo V21e 5G specs appear on Geekbench
  • The smartphone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC and 8GB RAM.
  • Vivo V21e 5G India launch could happen soon as the smartphone has been certified by the BIS. 

Some time ago, Vivo launched the Vivo V21 5G and Vivo V21e 4G in Malaysia. It appears that there is a third device in the series called the Vivo V21e 5G, which we have just spotted on Geekbench. Furthermore, the smartphone has also made its appearance on the BIS certification website, indicating that the Vivo V21e 5G India launch is imminent. We can expect the Vivo V21e 5G specs to be similar to that of its 4G sibling, with the only main difference being the chipset. However, Vivo could also tweak a few things here and there to better differentiate the 5G model from the 4G variant. 

Vivo V21e 5G specs spotted on Geekbench

The above Geekbench listing belongs to the Vivo V21e 5G. It appears to be running a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset – a step down from the Dimensity 800U found on the Vivo V21 5G. This particular Vivo V21e 5G variant has 8GB of RAM and runs Android 11 out of the box. While the Geekbench listing doesn’t tell us much about its specs, we have a rough idea about what the phone could have in store for us. 

The Vivo V21e 5G is very likely a Vivo V21 5G with a downgraded chipset. To recall, the Vivo V21 5G’s specs include a 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED screen, a 4,000mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging, and up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Its triple-camera array packs a 64MP primary camera sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP macro camera. The phone also gets a 44MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls. It also features an under-display fingerprint sensor.
