Design and Display
Making a design comparison shows the design on the Vivo V21e 5G isn’t far from what is being served on the regular V21 5G. However, there is a little tweak on the rear panel that pretty much sets both smartphones apart physically.
On the rear of this smartphone, we have a smaller camera module and a gradient design that’s different from what we were served on the former. Having two cameras in place of three rear cameras as seen on its siblings, facilitated the smaller camera module.
Upfront, we have the same 6.44-inch AMOLED display bearing the same parameter, with the highlights being a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels and a density of approximately 409 PPI.
On the rear camera section of the Vivo V21e 5G, we have just two cameras as opposed to being three as seen on the standard V21.
The rear camera setup comprises a 64MP primary camera with an aperture of f/1.8 and an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and a 120˚ field of view. The video recording capability of this setup is capped at 4k @ 30fps.
Moving up front, we find a single 32MP camera as opposed to the 44MP camera on the standard Vivo V21. This camera is capable of recording videos up to 1080p @ 30fps.

On the performance side, the Vivo V21e 5G place the MediaTek Dimensty 800u 5G processor on the regular V21 5G, with a less premium MediaTek Deminsity 700 5G processor.
We also have the Mali-G57 MC2 GPU in place of the Mali-G57 MC3 GPU seen on the regular V21. However, we have got the same 8GB RAM, 128GB built-in storage, non-removable 4000mAh Li-Po battery. But a higher 44W charging as opposed to the 33W charging on the former.
On the software side, we have got the Funtouch 11.1 operating system running on the Android 11 operating system.
