The Vivo V21 series is close to being launched in India. Reports have previously suggested the line-up will be launched towards the end of this month, and a separate leak by tipster Abhishek Yadav even claims that Vivo is looking at launching two phones as part of the series — Vivo V21 4G and Vivo V21 5G. 

Now ahead of the eventual launch of the two phones, we’ve received exclusive information about the design of the V21 5G. As per our source close to the company, the Vivo V21 5G will become one of the slimmest 5G phones around, as it will be just 7.29mm thick and weigh only 176 grams. Our source has also confirmed the phone will feature a “premium AG glass finish” to complete the design of the device. Apart from this, our source did not reveal anything else about the device. However, we’re expecting more information about the V21 5G in the days leading up to the launch.
