Vivo X27 Features – The Difference Between Vivo V15 Pro

Just like the V15 Pro, the Vivo X27 comes with a 6.39 inch Super AMOLED screen with 1080p+ resolution, built-in fingerprint reader, and no notches or holes. The phone has a triple camera on its rear with a 48MP Quad Bayer sensor in the main module. It defaults to 12MP mode, as is the intended use case of Quad Bayer cameras. There is no changes in this camera features between the X27 and V15 Pro.

The next camera is a 120 degrees ultra-wide angle camera (it is a 13MP shooter). This gives the Vivo X27 a resolution advantage over the V15 Pro, which has an 8MP 120 degrees camera. Both cameras also have 5MP depth sensors. The camera offers a night mode that can stack 12-16 photos to reduce noise and produce a clear image in the dark.

The selfie camera is an example of a downgrade with the X27, it has a 16MP sensor, down from 32MP. Both are motorized pop-up cameras, but the one on the X27 is slower as it needs 0.68 seconds to extend compared to 0.46s on the V15 Pro.

The Vivo X27 is powered by a Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The internal storage is twice as much as that of the V15 Pro (this is a clear upgrade), but the chipset is a mixed bag. The V-phone has a Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is a faster CPU but a slower GPU.

The Vivo X27 does have a vapour chamber which keeps its chipset cool, so this may contribute to a difference in performance. The phone comes with Android 9.0 Pie turned into Funtouch OS 9 out-of-the-box.

The battery of the X27 is slightly larger than that of the V15 Pro – 4000mAh against 3700mAh. Both batteries has 18W fast charging.

Vivo X27 Price and Availability

The Vivo X27 is now available for purchase. The price starts at CNY3,600 in China, $535 in the United States, and €470 across Europe. The price is quite more compared to that of the Vivo V15 Pro.
