Hardware limitations are just one of the reasons why smartphones are having a hard time taking professional-looking night portraits. Fortunately, we now have a device like the vivo V27 series, which makes taking portraits at night more interesting thanks to its Aura Portrait Algorithm feature. 

The Aura Portrait Algorithm feature works with the help of three components: light, camera sensor, and software. First, there’s the Aura Light on the back, which is essentially a ring light built-in on the device. Yes, the popular ring light is now attached to the smartphone itself, no need to carry a heavy professional light everywhere you go. 

The sensor has a 1/1.56-inch size, allowing it to absorb 145% more light, which results in better image quality, even in night shots or indoors in low-light scenarios.


As for the third component, we have the software. The vivo V27 series comes with the brand’s Portrait Algorithms. The Aura Light and the IMX766V work closely with the said algorithm to intelligently adjust the lighting to match your environment, thus creating studio-quality portrait images when you’re shooting during the day and especially at night.

Oh, and that’s not it, as the images you’d be taking from the vivo V27 series looks as good as the device’s design itself.

Now, let’s see what the Aura Light can actually do. To begin, you simply have to open the camera app, go to Portrait, enable the flash, and pick between different “Styles”.


After snapping some photos in low-light, you can see how much better the special Aura Light is compared to traditional LED flashes. It has a warmer tone to really lift up skin tones. Plus, the light coverage is much wider and the software processes it to provide a studio-quality look.

The images also look clean with little to no visible noise, even in low-light environments. Without a doubt, the special IMX766V works seamlessly on this one.

And it’s not just the main camera and Aura Light that makes it a great content-creation machine. The vivo V27 also comes with a 50-megapixel Eye AF vlogging camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel macro shooter.
