Vivo V27 and V27 Pro

Say hello to the new Vivo V series phones – Vivo just launched three V phones – Vivo V27, Vivo V27 Pro, and Vivo V27e for global markets. Both the Vivo V27 and V27 Pro are specifically launched in India, and also for other international markets. It seems the V27e is missing for the Indian markets.

The Vivo V27 Pro is a rebranded version of the Vivo S16 Pro, which has been launched in China in late 2022. The V27, on the other hand, is a new phone that comes with a completely new Dimensity 7200 SoC.
