Vivo is all set to launch its new smartphone in India with in-screen fingerprint scanner – the Vivo X21 on May 29. The company has already sent the invites for the launch event to be held at the said date. Now ahead of its official launch, the Chinese company has started taking pre-order for the Vivo X21. One can Pre-Book the phone on Vivo official E-Store by making an advance payment of Rs 2,000.
The company’s website is also offering attractive pre-booking offers which include a Rs 1,000 gift voucher from Ferns n petals, 5 percent cashback on SBI credit cards, no cost EMI up to 12 months, and one-year device security along with 280 GB additional data from Vodafone.
Interested customers will get an email with a coupon code to purchase the Vivo X21 once they submit the pre-booking amount. Once the device launches on May 29, they will be able to apply the coupon on Vivo’s online store and pay the balance amount to get the device. However, Vivo X21’s product page on the Vivo online store reveals neither the pricing nor the availability of the smartphone.
