Camerapedia does not hint at type 127. There is one type 135 and three type 120 cameras.

The price per frame would be the lowest of all type 120 variations. I don't guess that frame size, regarding quality, was that much an issue for that range of cameras.
With 6x6 and smaller negatives would have to enlarged anyway, so the cost regarding frame/film would only be part of the story, with the alternative of type 127 film in mind.
So it falls down on many exposures on easy to access film.
