As the sole mobile provider of the device, Smart will be offering the X21 exclusively to its enterprise clients.

The X21 is designed especially for C-level executives and entrepreneurs with features such as in-display fingerprint scanning technology and a 6.28” AMOLED display.

“The X-21 was crafted with the on-the-go lifestyle of business leaders and influencers in mind. To be able to tap this market and ensure that users enjoy the highest quality experience with the device, we thought of partnering with Smart given that their premium plans come with a guarantee of excellence in service,” said Vivo VP for PR strategy and partnerships Annie Lim.

To allow subscribers to fully enjoy the phone’s state-of-the-art features, Smart has bundled the offer together with its Plan 2000, which is inclusive of unlimited calls and texts, as well as non-stop surfing.

“This year, we at Smart have really focused on ramping up our LTE capabilities and have seen these activities bear fruit,” said Smart Infinity head Chet Alviz.

“All efforts are aimed at elevating our services and the experience of our customers. Part of this is to provide them with mobile devices like the Vivo X21, so they can fully and truly enjoy the power of Smart’s fastest LTE network,” Alviz added.
