“The Vivo X27 shares a lot of its DNA with the Vivo V15 Pro.”
Vivo has officially revealed the launch date of the Vivo X27 today on its social media handle of Weibo. The Vivo V15 Pro lookalike goes official in China on March 19th in the country. The handset is expected to succeed the Vivo X23 skipping the X25 moniker and will be a big step-up from its predecessor, indicate reports and leaks. The handset has leaked recently on live TV show recently and a short glimpse of it was enough to confirm that its design looks eerily similar to the Vivo V15 Pro (review) mid-ranger in India. Sadly though, the teaser itself doesn’t reveal much about the marquee features of the upcoming phone.
The Vivo X27 could very well be the Vivo V1829A/V1829T that passed TENAA certification recently. If that is indeed correct, then we could see the same 6.39-inch AMOLED display on the Chinese phone with an in-display fingerprint reader. That said, there could be a number of differences between the V15 Pro and Vivo X27. The Indian variant is equipped with a Snapdragon 675 SoC while the Vivo X27 might rock a Snapdragon 710 chipset as the TENAA listing hints at an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. Also, the Chinese version is expected to rock 8GB of RAM and multiple storage options such as 128GB/256GB. It is also likely that we will see the pop-up selfie camera, however, it could be a 16MP sensor instead of the 32MP shooter on the V15 Pro. If the TENAA listed model mentioned above is certainly the Vivo X27, then the triple camera setup can also be expected with a composition of 48MP + 13MP + 5MP. The Vivo X27 will most likely run Android Pie out-of-the-box with the latest version of FunTouch OS 9 sipping power from a 4,000mAh battery. Also, expect 22.5W fast charging on the handset. The pricing does remain a mystery as of now but we can expect more in that aspect from leaks in the coming days.
