Vivo Philippines has a new budget phone and it’s going to be a Shopee exclusive. Meet the Y21T.

The Vivo Y21T was first introduced in Indonesia last month. The unit we’re getting here is essentially the same, but only with 4GB of RAM instead of 6GB.


Then again, everything else is the same. It’s still powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor. That’s a 4G LTE chip, no 5G sadly.

Unlike a lot of phones today, it lacks a high refresh rate screen and only has an HD+ screen instead of FHD+. On the upside, it does come with a generous 5,000mAh battery and a very sharp 50-megapixel main camera.


The Vivo Y21T retails for Php10,999 on Shopee with an additional Php300 discount voucher. What’s more, it also comes with free TWS earbuds and a DITO SIM card.
