vivo V27e Launch
1st March marked the launch of vivo’s latest addition to their V series; the V27e! Needless to say, the launch was a massive hit, with plenty of local celebs and KOLs showing up to hype up the event. From artist Jang Han-byul and influencer Aun Li Ying (安俐颖) making an appearance, to Astro radio announcer Tincy Tan (陈昱汐) emcee-ing – vivo’s launch went off without a hitch.
The launch was buzzing, as people tested out the phone for themselves. It was a common sight to see fellow attendees testing out the new vivo V27e’s camera, with many making use of the Aura Light Portrait to take aesthetic selfies. We also got to taste cupcakes and a lavender crepe cake from Vanilla Crepe, which fit perfectly with vivo’s lavender-themed phone.
