The phone has a dual camera setup that includes 12 megapixels primary and 5 megapixels secondary sensor along with Dual Pixel PDAF technology for faster focus. The phone also features AI-powered scene detection. It has 25 megapixels front camera with intelligent AI Beauty feature.

The phone has IR face unlock that even works fine in low-light. It also has the same under-display fingerprint sensor similar to its predecessors.

Connectivity features of the phone include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy and GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS. Like Vivo X21, this phone also comes with a micro USB port. Not sure why Vivo is not considering Type-c when it is adding a futuristic fingerprint sensor.

It packs 3,400mAh battery that is also bigger than the 3,200mAh battery in Vivo X21.

Vivo X21s has been priced at 2,498 yuan in China. It comes in Starry Night Black and Millenium Powder color options.
