The Vivo V17 was announced last month in Russia. Spec-wise it was quite similar to the Vivo S1 Pro. However, today a phone with the same name made its way into the Indian market and that too with a revamped design and upgraded specifications. This model has an L-shaped camera, a punch-hole display and a hoard of other upgrades. Furthermore, it also comes with features such as Multi-turbo mode, AR stickers and Voice Changer.

Vivo V17 Overview

The device has a 6.44-inch E3 Super AMOLED iView display (Vivo’s fancy name for punch-hole display). The supported resolution on the device is 1080 x 2400 pixels. A major focus has been given to the display as the panel also has a 100 percent DCI-P3 color gamut. Moreover, the panel filters out 42 percent blue light and there’s a low brightness anti-flicker technology. This tech offers added protection in dark.

Vivo V17 has a quad-camera setup on the back. As mentioned above, the cameras are arranged in an L-shape. The primary lens in the rear cam is a 48MP sensor. The setup is completed by an 8MP secondary sensor, a 2MP sensor for bokeh and another 2MP macro lens. On the front, the device has a 32MP selfie shooter housed inside the punch-hole.

There are some preloaded features on the camera too. The inclusion of Super Night Mode, Ultra Stable Video, portrait bokeh, portrait light effects and many more will certainly help users capture magnificent photos.

Under the hood, Vivo V17 runs on the Snapdragon 675 SoC. The RAM option that you get is of 8GB and the onboard storage is of 128GB. Besides that, the smartphone runs on a 4,500mAh battery with 18W fast charging done via Type-C port.
