Vivo is gearing up for a new launch in its camera-centric V-series. Dubbed as the Vivo V17, it will be a slightly watered-down version of the Vivo V17 Pro. Live images of the smartphone have surfaced online giving us a good look at the upcoming smartphone. Moreover, some key specifications of the Vivo V17 have also been leaked prior to its launch later this month.
The alleged Vivo V17 live images released by Russia-based Hi.Tech.Mail shows the smartphone flaunting a gradient finish on its glossy white rear panel with blue and pink accents. The rear houses a quad-camera setup in a diamond-shaped module with an LED flash below it. On the sensors is a 48MP camera while the remaining three camera sensor is not known. It shares many of the design elements with the Vivo S5 that will go official in China on November 14.
The front sports a waterdrop notch with a slightly thick chin at the bottom. The lack of a physical fingerprint sensor suggests the presence of an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Vivo V17 is said to come with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It is reported to come with a 4,500 mAh battery with no word on fast charging.
There is no information about the processor powering the upcoming Vivo smartphone. The phone has a prominent ‘Camera & Music’ branding at the back making it clear that Vivo is targeting photography and music enthusiasts. A device with similar specifications was recently certified by TENAA. It was listed with a 6.38 inch AMOLED display. This could be the upcoming Vivo V17 for all we know.
According to another report, Vivo will launch the smartphone in India and Russia later this month. It is expected to be priced around Rs 25,000. As per the report, Vivo will discontinue the Vivo V17 Pro in India and will only see the Vivo V17 variant in the country. As of now, the company has not provided any official launch date.
