Display and Cameras
Vivo Y21 features a 6.51″ IPS LCD screen with 720×1600 resolution that provides an 89% screen-body ratio. The screen is the same as it was in the predecessor Y20. On the front screen, there is a notch at the top with an 8 MP selfie camera and f/2.0 aperture. The selfie camera can take videos at a maximum resolution of 1920×1080 ta 30 fps. Similarly, on the backside, there are two cameras. The first one is a 13 MP f/2.2 main camera and the second one is a 2 MP f/2.2 macro camera.
