Vivo launched the V17 Pro in India in September & that phone has a Quad camera setup on the rear, a dual selfie camera setup in the pop-up mechanism & a Full-Screen design. Today, the Vivo V17 launched in India & as the name suggests, this is the non-Pro version of the V17, hence cheaper than the V17 Pro. The phone is priced at Rs 22,990 in India & is up for Pre-booking.
The design is different than the V17 Pro as there is no longer a Full-Screen design. Instead, Vivo went for a punch-hole display on the front & the USP of this device is that it has the tiniest punch-hole in any phone at just 2.98mm. There are Quad cameras on the rear & the rectangular camera module is placed on the top left that has the four lenses & the LED flash.
Vivo V17 does have a headphone jack & there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom.
Coming to the specifications, there is a 6.44-inch FHD+ (2400×1080) E3 Super AMOLED panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio & the SOC powering the V17 is Qualcomm Snapdragon 675. This is the same chipset that powers the V17 Pro. There is 8GB RAM & 128GB internal storage.
Talking about the cameras, the Vivo V17 has Quad cameras on the rear that include a primary 48 Megapixel main lens, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro lens & a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 32MP selfie shooter. Some camera features include Super night selfie, Portrait light effects (Portrait bokeh included), AR stickers, Pose Master, AI Makeup, AI HDR, Burst, Super EIS for videos, etc.
The phone comes with a 4,500mAh battery & supports 9V/2A fast charging. Funtouch OS 9.2 runs out of the box, which is based on Android 9 Pie.
