While most tech companies focus on enhancing their smartphones' rear cameras, this global smartphone brand is looking the other way in hopes to provide Filipinos with a different kind of selfie experience. 

vivo launches its V21 Series in the Philippines on June 5, 2021, and both models promise user-friendly, expert-grade camera features that allow users to take professional-looking portraits in a snap. 

A closer look at the vivo V21 5G and V21e specs reveal a feature-rich selfie phone with a solid tech backup. The vivo V21 5G is one of the thinnest 5G-capable selfie phones in the market today, while the V21e is not far behind at 7.38mm. Both phones can help you create fun, professional-looking portraits.

Available in all vivo stores nationwide and official e-commerce sites, the latest handsets include the flagship V21 5G and the V21e – both feature-rich, selfie-focused smartphones. More than just the selfie power boost, both phones hint at the serious specs beneath the exterior that gives users a smooth, seamless experience.

The V21 5G uses MediaTek Dimensity 800U 5G Processor, which allows the phone to boost its cores up to 2.4GHz, enabling users to launch apps, including top games, in a split second. Even at massive CPU speeds, the processor is engineered for balance and efficiency. This allows users to enjoy a 5G experience and great power efficiency for longer battery life. The same hard-working processor is also what enables the phone's cameras, along with built-in imaging accelerators, and noise reduction technology, to jointly work their magic during photography and video capture sessions. All this while the CPU's integrated AI processing unit works in the background to facilitate AI-camera enhancements that improve capture details and add effects.

For its part, the V21e uses Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 720G, reputed for being a game-centric, 8-core chipset that fully supports advanced camera, graphics processing, and entertainment features, as well as fast charging and power-efficient performance. This CPU is what gets the phone primed and ready for quick app launches, including spur-of-the-moment photography sessions.

Both the V21 5G and V21e use 8GB + 3GB Extended RAM technology. This means that, as an 8GB phone, they can readily tap on their internal storage for 3GB of additional memory space for RAM. This feat allows the user to run more apps at once and at consistently fast speeds.

The V21 5G, sporting a width of just 7.29mm, easily stands out as among the thinnest 5G-capable smartphones in the market today. It is available in Sunset Dazzle and Dusk Blue (AG Matte Glass). The V21e is just as sleek at 7.38mm width, in Roman Black and Diamond Flare (Ultra-thin AG glass) colors. 

Delivering on the promise of being ''the new portrait master,'' the flagship V21 5G provides users with features like Dual Selfie Spotlight, Dual-View Video, and Ultra Stable Selfie Video, all anchored on vivo's 44MP OIS Self Portrait front camera, and its 64MP OIS Night Camera. 

On the other hand, the more affordable vivo V21e enables users to enjoy fun photography with Super Night Selfie, Dual-View Videos, and Motion Autofocus, backed by its 44MP Eye Autofocus Self Portrait camera, and 64MP Night Camera.

The two models mutually boast of top-notch AMOLED displays with HDR10+ certification. The V21 5G features a 90Hz refresh rate (with a contrast ratio of 6000000:1), while the V21e has a 60Hz refresh rate (with a contrast ratio of 2000000:1). Both phones run on a 4000mAh battery, with 33W FlashCharge. 

Anyone can be a selfie master with the new V21 5G priced at P23,999 or the V21e at P17,999. Those who will purchase the V21e now until June 15 may get a special treat of P1,000 off, bringing the price to P16,999.
