Today, Vivo finally launched its V17 smartphone in India at an event in New Delhi. The Vivo V17 was a long due by the company as they had already launched the Vivo V17 pro earlier this year. The highlight for the Pro version was that it had a dual pop-up selfie camera on the front.
Talking about the upcoming Vivo V17, this device sits in the category of mid-range devices that have quality specs onboard. The specs on this thing are pretty decent, to say the least, we will talk about them after a short bit. There is a significant difference between the standard Vivo V17 and the Vivo V17 Pro, and as that main difference is of the camera.
The standard version of the V17 comes with a single selfie camera as compared to the dual pop-up selfie on the Pro version. Apart from the front camera, the back camera module of the Vivo V17 is now an 8 Megapixel camera for wide-angle shots, which is a 13 Megapixel telephoto sensor on the Vivo V17 Pro.
Vivo V17 Configurations
The Vivo V17 flaunts a beautiful 6.44-inch FHD+ display that is based on AMOLED technology with 2400 x 1080 pixels resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the V17 is powered by the Snapdragon 675 chipset, which is a pretty capable and decent processor in the mid-range budget devices.
On the software side, the V17 will be running Funtouch OS 9.2 based on Android 9.0 Pie, which is very outdated, to be honest. These decent specs and configurations are backed up by a giant 4,500 mAh battery that supports fast charging tech and USB-C.
The front camera on the standard V17 is a single 32Mega-pixel camera with f2.45 aperture. On the back, it has a Quad camera setup where the primary is a 48 Mega-pixel sensor, an 8 Mega-pixel for ultra-wide shots, a 2 Mega-pixel depth and a 2 Mega-Pixel Macro sensor.
The new Vivo V17 comes in two color variants, Midnight Ocean(Black) and Glacier Ice (White), and costs Rs 22,990 ($324).
