For mobile phone manufacturers, each generation of a flagship smartphone is highly confidential before release. Some manufacturers even try to tackle leak channels and dissociate themselves with false reports when they arise. However, in recent times, Chinese manufacturers have been a bit open with information about their device even before launch. Recently, He Wei, the host of a program on Hunan TV (China’s second-most-watched channel, second only to CCTV-1) was spotted with the upcoming vivo X-series flagship, vivo X27.
From the video, we can see that the vivo X27 uses a glass material, a colorful body, a triple rear camera setup, and a front pop-up single camera.

According to the TENAA listing, the vivo X27 is equipped with a 6.39-inch 2340 x 1080 resolution AMOLED screen. It has a dimension of 157.66 × 74.26 × 8.95 mm, weighs 188.3 g and comes pre-installed with Android 9 Pie system. The lights if this smartphone will be kept on by a 3920 mAh battery which supports fast charge (some speculate 4000 mAh). This device will come with up to 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage.
As for the configuration, the v1829 is equipped with an eight-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. It is suspected to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC.
