It is a new day and a new Vivo smartphone launch in India. We are talking about the Vivo V17 which is the newest camera-centric smartphone from the brand. It joins the Vivo V17 Pro smartphone that was unveiled a little over a couple of months ago. It is also worth mentioning that this new phone shares its name with the Vivo V17 Russian variant but has a completely different design and improved specifications.
The Vivo V17 Indian variant sports a 6.44-inch Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a punch-hole in the top right corner. This is different from the notched display used on the Russian model and similarly, the back panel has an L-shaped quad camera setup as compared to the diamond shape.
It comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor coupled with 8GB of RAM. There is 128GB of onboard storage and it is the only configuration option. The quad-camera setup includes a 48-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth camera with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. It also has a 32-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.45 aperture for taking selfies and video calls.
The whole package is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 18W Dual-Engine fast charging support. It will run Funtouch OS 9.2 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. Other features include an in-display fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth, and WiFi connectivity options.
The Vivo V17 has been priced at Rs. 22,990 for the sole 8GB/128GB model. It is available in Midnight Ocean and Glacier Ice color variants with sales starting December 17th.
