Vivo V21 5G with 44MP an  OIS Night Selfie Camera  

In this phone, the company has focused on cameras and made it a complete selfie dedicated phone. The phone has 44MP OIS Night Selfie Camera that made it “Night Selfie Specialized” with an f/2.0 aperture lens. What makes the camera more special and focused is the dual-LED flash module at the edge of the screen. These spotlights throw direct light on your face when you use the front camera at night. Also, the front camera records 4K video @30 fps, minus OIS. 

The phone is selfie dedicated, so the company has not focused much on the phone’s rear camera, but still, they are worth considering. On the back, the company has set three cameras with 64MP main OIS, 8MP ultra-wide angle, and 2MP shooting Macros. 

The camera performance of the Vivo V21 is ultimate. The phone is selfie dedicated and we have already revealed how capable it is. Similarly, the back camera of the phone has potential to capture focused and high-quality photos.
