The vivo X27 is now official and it is (generally) an improved version of the V15 Pro. Allow TellForce Blog to guide you through the differences.

Both have 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screens with 1080p+ resolution, built-in fingerprint scanner and no notches or holes. There’s a triple camera on the 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. No changes here.

Next is the 120° ultra-wide angle camera – it’s a 13MP shooter. This gives the X27 a resolution advantage over its sibling, which has an 8MP 120° camera. Both 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 the one example of a downgrade – 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 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. That’s twice as much storage as the V15 Pro (a clear upgrade), but the chipset is a mixed bag. The V-phone has a Snapdragon 675, which has a faster CPU but a slower GPU.

The X27 does have a vapor chamber to keep its chipset cool, so that may make a difference in performance. Either way, Android 9.0 Pie turned into Funtouch OS 9 is what you get out of the box.

The battery in the new model is slightly larger – 4,000mAh vs. 3,700mAh. In both cases you’re looking at 18W fast charging.
