3D Curved 120Hz Display with Sleek aesthetics
Notably, the Vivo V27 is the first non-Pro variant in the ‘V’ series to feature a curved display and comes with a 60-degree screen curvature that allows for an immersive viewing experience. The 3D curved display is visually stunning, with a massive 6.78-inch AMOLED display that has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports 1 billion colours. Despite having such a big display, the phone is light at just 180 grams and 7.36 mm thick. With its curved display and Aura LED ring, which is a ring-shaped light source, the handset looks a class apart from other handsets in this price range. On top of this, the minimalistic circular cut-out for the selfie camera ensures that the phone offers a full-view experience that is often compromised on phones with notches. All these factors add up to give the vivo V27 a distinct premium look. Just one look at the phone and you will feel like holding it in hand, which is a huge compliment to how brilliant it looks.
Moving on to the design, the vivo V27 comes with a glass-sandwich design that has a unique feature on the back. The Magic Blue colour changes from light to dark colour when exposed to sunlight. If you don’t like the blue colour, you can also opt for a Noble Black colour, which shimmers like stars in the night sky.
Professional Night portrait system – Capture low-light moments and portraits like never before
The vivo V27 comes with a triple rear camera setup. Of that, the 50MP primary sensor is the Sony IMX766V with OIS, which offers an incredible amount of detail for your pictures and tremendous stability while shooting videos. Apart from that, the flashlight is not a regular one, it is the Aura system which is more powerful, and works even in portrait mode. You can keep the Aura flash always on, or set it as a regular flashlight too. The handset offers a professional portrait system to enable you to click mesmerising pictures even in low light and night conditions. With Night Portrait and Aura LED ring, you will be able to capture studio-like portraits from the extremely capable Sony IMX766V sensor. With the brand’s suite of night algorithms, you will be able to capture grain-free shots even at night, which is unheard of in this price range. If you’ve ever missed crucial night party moments earlier as your phone managed to click only blurry shots, you can say goodbye to this issue as with vivo V27, this will be a thing of past.
The V27 series also comes with a built-in Wedding style Portrait mode, which is an India-exclusive feature and makes the images stand out as if they were shot from a professional camera. This is really useful for shooting photos at weddings, as it makes your photos more attractive and social media-ready than ever before.
Apart from the primary sensor, you get an 8MP ultrawide lens and a 2MP macro lens too. The extreme night mode makes photos taken at night really bright with low noise. In terms of video, you get hybrid OIS+EIS stabilisation with the ability to record up to 4K resolution at 60fps from both front and rear cameras. One of the key highlights of this smartphone is its selfie camera. We are talking about a 50MP sensor with HD Eye autofocus, giving you sharp and detailed selfies. For those of you who love clicking selfies, this is one of the best options you can find in the market right now.
MediaTek Dimensity 7200 – Performance powerhouse with unparalleled efficiency
vivo V27 is the first phone in India to feature the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 at the helm, which is a marked improvement over the MediaTek Dimensity 900 used in the vivo V25 last year. Not only is it clocked much higher at 2.8Ghz with its powerful cores, but also it is also more efficient thanks to the 4nm process used in the fabrication of this chipset. This enables the handset to offer solid performance and at the same time provide a long battery backup.
In terms of RAM, you get up to 12GB of RAM, and you can further extend up to 20GB using the extended RAM 3.0 feature. As per vivo, you can run up to 27 applications at once, without having a fear of any app booting out due to low memory. The V27 also comes with a dedicated Game Boost mode, which pushes the SoC to the limit to give the maximum frames in demanding games such as Call of Duty and Genshin Impact.
