vivo has introduced the Y27 as a new entry-level smartphone with an ultra-sharp camera.

The vivo Y27 is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 octa-core processor, paired with 6GB of RAM with a decent 128GB of storage, which is sadly non-expandable as it doesn’t have a microSD card slot.


On the front, there’s a large 6.64-inch FHD+ IPS display, with a waterdrop notch for the 8-megapixel selfie camera. On the back, we have a distinctively clean design with gold rings in the two lenses. The first one holds the 50-megapixel main camera, joined by a 2-megapixel portrait sensor.

Keeping the lights on is a standard 5,000mAh battery, paired with a 44W FlashCharge. It ships with Android 13-based FuntouchOS 13.


The vivo Y27 is listed in Malaysia for a price of MYR699 (~Php8,400) and in India for INR14,999 (~Php9,900). No word yet if it’s coming to the Philippines.
