vivo Malaysia Unveils the vivo V27e

vivo launched its latest addition to the vivo V series – the V27e on 1 March 2023 in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. vivo V27e is a light-weight, stylish phone which combines functionality and style for users looking for a lower mid-range smartphone that offers an all-round photography experience.

“With its eye-catching appearance and outstanding image capabilities, vivo V27e allows users the power to capture special, aesthetically pleasing moments. To achieve this, vivo constantly strives to develop leading technology in its smartphones to improve performance in a slim design. The V series smartphones are also well-known for their aesthetic beauty and vivo has continued this strong tradition with an amazing range of colours for vivo V27e. Looking ahead, vivo will continue to push the boundaries with its smartphones to ensure users enjoy the best experience.”

With vivo being the portrait specialist, it was not surprising that the v27e places an emphasis on portrait photography with the Aura Light Portrait feature that vivo claims to provide natural night portraits, thanks to its ultra-sensing rear main camera, studio-level soft lighting effect and portrait-enhancing capabilities. The Aura Light and Portrait Mode work in tandem to help the camera light up faces for better portraits at night (more light usually results in less noise in photos). ​ 

The 64MP OIS Ultra-Sensing Camera on the back of vivo V27e offers a longer exposure and increases light intake by six times, producing more stable snapshots, boosting the quality and success rate of images taken in low-light conditions. vivo claims that the 32MP front camera takes clearer selfies, and being a vivo user myself (I use the vivo X80 Pro) I can attest to the fact that vivo’s selfie capabilities are usually pretty good while being natural so much so that it amazes most of my female friends. The V27e also comes with the multi-style portrait system which offers different templates ​to personalise images taken on the front and rear cameras.

Vivo also claims that the V27e can shoot brighter, more dynamic, detailed videos thanks to the Hybrid Image Stabilisation (OIS + EIS) which can perform stabilisation computations and movements up to 10,000 times per second. (I cannot substantiate these claims as I have not had the opportunity to test the phone in the field/ real-life scenarios).

The Vlog Movie Creator feature offers a new one-stop video creation experience, providing 26 templates with rich video effects to show users how to shoot objects, people, or landscapes, along with real-time guidance for camera movement. The Vlog Movie Creator also enables users to edit videos efficiently with a built-in time slider, allowing users to easily crop and delete redundant segments of videos. It also comes with portrait optimisation to enhance skin texture, focus, lighting and stabilisation, a feature I’m sure most females will undoubtedly appreciate.

The vivo V27e’s design pays tribute to the vibrant colours of nature with a design flow which gives it a dynamic, artistic, simple and elegant look. Both the colour variants offers a different visual experience. The Lavender Purple edition uses the nano-scale photoetching technique and features a glowing peacock feather pattern, giving it an eye-catching look. The phone is also carefully designed to exude an airy, lively and elegant feel. Meanwhile, the Glory Black edition features a silky, glittery pattern which was designed to exude a sense of glamour and refined luxury.

The vivo V27e has a large 6.62′′ 2.5D screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and ultra-high brightness and contrast. The 120Hz Sunlight AMOLED Display also features self-developed ambient light sensors combined with luminescent materials which intelligently adjust the screen’s brightness and deliver vivid authentic colours.

The flat frame, slim body of 7.7mm thickness and a weight of 185g provides an ultra-thin grip that gives the phone a slender and elegant look which is accentuated by the stunning flat screen.  

The new vivo V27e is equipped with a 4600 mAh (TYP) battery. Coupled with vivo’s in-house developed FlashCharge technology, it supports up to 66W of charging power (the V27e comes with a vivo standard charger that supports up to 66W charging) and a peak energy conversion efficiency of up to 97.5%. Further supported with an advanced cooling system, the phone can be charged to 50% in only 19 minutes while the screen is off. The vivo V27e battery has twice the lifespan compared to the industry standard and supports up to 1,600 charging cycles compared to the industry standard of 800 charging cycles.

The vivo V27e is equipped with MediaTek’s Helio G99 platform, which features a 6nm advanced process. It combines graphite sheets of ultra-high thermal conductivity with high-efficiency heat dissipation materials to create an efficient cooling system to boost performance.

The vivo V27e is equipped with Extended RAM technology, which supports up to 8GB of virtual RAM. The Extended RAM works in tandem with the 6nm chip to seamlessly switch between apps and store data.

The vivo V27e is priced at RM1,299 and is currently available at all vivo concept stores, authorised dealers, vivo Malaysia’s official E-Store and vivo Malaysia’s official flagship stores on Shopee, Lazada and TikTok.

From 4 March 2023 onwards for a month, customers who purchase the vivo V27e will receive free gifts worth RM666, which includes a smart tag worth RM69, Bluetooth speaker worth RM99, 1-year extended warranty and 1-year screen protection.
