6.9mm Vivo Y27L launches in India

vivo-Y27LThe stylish entry-level Vivo Y27L is now available in India for 12,990 INR or US$196.

If you’ll be purchasing the Y27L, it’s more the style and form that you’ll be paying for than the specifications. That’s because what’s inside the Y27L is fairly in-line with phones half its cost.

Gizchina News of the week

The Vivo Y27L has a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720p display; a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor along with 1GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM; an 8 mega-pixel rear camera, 5 mega-pixel front facing camera, and lastly, a 2260mAh battery.


If nothing else, you’ll be reminded of the Xiaomi Redmi 2 with this set of specifications. But again, it’s the form and design that demand the premium; the Y27L is fairly lightweight 137 grams, and features a magnesium alloy back with the phone being just 6.9mm thick.

The dual SIM, 4G LTE phone should be available across major offline retailers in the coming few days.

    Maybe they can tag up with some mental hospital and sell it to mentaly retarded people as a medical phone.
    I cant seem to find any reason why any sane person will buy this device at this price.

      Agreed. I bought the Vivo X5 Pro. It is seriously overpriced for a mid-range phone even after considering the build quality. The software optimization effort is vastly lacking behind Xiaomi and other competitors.

    Way to expensive to compete against what the competition is offering to consumers. Vivo can no longer just rely on the asthetical build to compensate.
