vivo V27e Unboxing and First Impression

vivo has just launched its latest iteration of the vivo V25 Series—the vivo V27 Series dubbed as The Aura Portrait Master. This series offers fans a one-of-a-kind camera feature that’s sure to upgrade any smartphone into a ‘studio in one’s pocket’. This new lineup offers two variants – the vivo V27 5G and vivo V27e.

vivo is also the first to introduce a first-of-its-kind technology in the industry, the Aura Portrait Algorithm. This technology covers the three aspects in the light and imaging processing journey. First is the Aura Light, the second is the 64 MP OIS camera, and last is vivo’s full and exclusive line of Portrait Algorithms.

I was able to get my hands on one of the V27 Series and I am very excited to share with you my unboxing experience as well as my initial impression of vivo V27e. So, let's start with the unboxing.

Unboxing the vivo V27e

The vivo V27e comes in a premium box with the front portion indicating the V27e branding. At the same time, the brand details: model number, IMEI number, serial number, color, and among others, are imprinted on the back portion of the box.

You can also find the vivo V27e branding on the sides of the box. There is nothing to look at from the top and bottom portions.

Inside the Box and Accessories

After opening the lid of the box, you will find the vivo V27e smartphone wrapped in white matte plastic. I will set aside the device for now and see what else we get in the box.

Inside are the following: a SIM card ejector tool, quick start guide, important information (including the Warranty Card), USB power adapter, USB type-C to USB-A charging cable, and silicone case. The vivo V27e doesn’t come with headphones – you have to provide your own.

Let us now take a look at the physical overview and my first impression of the device.

Design and Walk Around

For many years, many of its fans have referred to vivo as the brand that not only provides high-quality innovations but also visually-appealing designs. This time, the brand introduces a new Fluid Design. In my Glory Black variant, there’s a silky, glittering pattern if you looked at the phone from a certain angle. Also, I like this kind of finish because it is less susceptible to fingerprint smudges and scratches.

Aside from Glory Black, the vivo V27e is available in eye-catching Lavender Purple colorway created through vivo’s photolithography process to achieve its glowing peacock feathers design.

In addition to its design, the vivo V27e weighs 185g and has a thickness of 7.69 mm. With its flat frame, the vivo V27e is sleek to look at and comfortable to hold.

On the front, the vivo V27e is equipped with a 6.62-inch FullHD+ (1080 x 2404) 120Hz AMOLED display. At the top is a centered hole-punch 32MP camera, and the earpiece is quite thin and discretely etched above the display. Underneath the display is the fingerprint reader. A pre-installed screen protector is also found.

Found at the back is a rectangular-shaped camera module that houses a triple-camera set-up along with the industry's first built-in ring light called the Aura Light.

vivo V27e Rear Cameras

This replaces the usual camera flash and makes portrait shots clearer and more natural-looking. This feature also gives images a soft light effect usually found in photos done in professional studio setups. Here's what it looks like once activated.

Found on the right side are your standard volume rocker button and power button.

The top is clean with only the secondary noise-canceling microphone present.

At the bottom, you can find the USB Type-C charging port, downward-firing speaker, microphone, and hybrid SIM tray. A hybrid SIM tray can hold either a second SIM card or a microSD card for expandable storage. Sadly, there is no 3.5mm audio jack on the vivo V27e.
