Vivo V17 isn’t a completely new or upcoming phone. Recently, Vivo had launched the phone in Russia and that phone is a rebranded Vivo S1 Pro. However, some recent reports indicated that the Vivo V17 will be slightly different from its Russian brother. Today a hands-on video of the phone has leaked which clears up a few things.
In the video, which was uploaded by 91Mobiles, we can see the back of the phone pretty clearly. It looks like the Vivo V17 will have a quad-camera setup on the back, shaped like an L, where three camera sensors are placed vertically along with another camera sensor on the right side in a rectangular camera module. There is no camera bump but we can see a frame going around.
Vivo has recently sent invites for an event on December 9 and it is being expected that in that event, the company will launch the all-new Vivo V17. The invite shows a phone with a punch-hole display and that strengthens the previous claims of the Indian variant of Vivo V17 with a punch-hole display instead of a waterdrop notch that is present on its Russian counterpart. The retail poster for the phone also revealed a few things about the phone.
Apart from the camera and punch-hole display, the Indian variant of Vivo V17 is quite similar to the Russian one, as per media reports. The Vivo V17 is said to feature a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display and it should be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 SoC, coupled with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage. The phone may pack a 4500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging as well. In terms of camera, the Vivo V17 will be quite interesting as the phone may come with a 48-megapixel primary camera along with an 8-megapixel camera (probably ultra-wide) and two more 2-megapixel cameras among which one may be a just a depth sensor while the other one might be a macro lens.
However, these are the details acquired from various sources and there is no official word from Vivo regarding the specs or features of the Vivo V17. But, we are pretty sure that the pricing will be quite interesting as this is a mid-range phone and with the Vivo V17, the company is aiming at a market crowded with quite a large number of smartphones from brands like Xiaomi and Realme.
