Vivo Y21A was finally launched in India on Monday — just days after its listing appeared on the Vivo India website. The new Vivo phone comes with dual rear cameras and features a waterdrop-style display notch. It also carries 18W fast charging support and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 SoC. Overall, the Vivo Y21A is slightly different from the Vivo Y21e that debuted in the country earlier this month. The existing model has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 SoC as a major change over the new phone. The Vivo Y21A seems to face a tough fight from the likes of the Redmi Note 10, Poco M3, and the Infinix Note 11S.
