Vivo has recently launched three smartphones under its V27 series namely V27, V27 Pro, and the V27e. The Vivo V27e which is the smaller and the most affordable model of the three is the focus of this article since we’ve already talked about the V27 and the V27 Pro in another article. The phone is a mid-range device that lacks 5G support and has a 64-megapixel camera that is equipped with optical image stabilization (OIS).
The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio G99 chipset and has a RAM of 8 or 12 GB, with a permanent storage option of 128 or 256 GB. It also supports memory cards, unlike its older siblings. The flat AMOLED screen measures 6.62″ with a resolution of 1080×2400 (398 ppi) and increased refresh rate up to 120 Hz.
The battery of Vivo V27e has a capacity of 4600 mAh and supports fast charging of up to 66 watts. The cameras on the phone include a 32 MP front camera and a triple rear camera setup of 64+2+2 MP. The main rear camera is the only one that has optical stabilization, but the brand of the sensor is still unknown.
The NFC module is available, but not in all countries, and the fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen. The phone also features Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi. The prices for Vivo V27e start at RM666 in Malaysia, an equivalent of about $289, which is considered a good price by some.
The Vivo V27e has received some early reviews, although they are in languages not comprehensible to the author. Key features of the Vivo V27e include a Li-Pol battery, fast charging, triple rear camera setup, and Android Funtouch OS 13. Other features include GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and sensors such as Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Compass, Zoom, Light, Fingerprint (side), NFC, and USB-Type-C v2.0.
Overall, the Vivo V27e is a decent mid-range phone with good specs and features but an unclear camera. Its affordable price and optical stabilization feature make it stand out among its competitors.
