Design and Display
The phone has a smooth, durable premium design. It has the Corning Glass 6, making it a solid companion amidst the adversities. When you take the V17 Pro in your palm, its elite aesthetics will engulf you.
The smartphone features an exclusive, custom-made 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 20:9 which Vivo calls Ultra FullView Display. The latest E3 OLED offers a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, bringing vibrant and authentic colors to life. The screen has exceptionally slim bezels with having a screen-to body-ratio of 91.6%. It has a dimension of 159.00 × 74.70 × 9.80 mm and weighs around 201.8 grams. It is available in 2 colors Midnight Ocean (Black) and Glacier Ice (White). Furthermore, it has an optimized fingerprint technology and algorithm that provides a better unlocking experience — 0.39s Unlocking Speed with Screen on.
The device has a smart elevating module that houses two new front cameras alongside the Moonlight Glow and earpiece. It elegantly extends when needed and retracts without a trace. Vivo also put an auto retraction feature to protect against accidental free fall. In short, when your phone automatically detects a free-fall, it retracts the camera back inside to protect it from damage. The device’s actions are always smooth, sleek, and safe because of the upgraded motor system and the unibody alloy case.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
Vivo always focuses on their phone’s camera quality. The V17 Pro comes with a dual pop-up from the camera. The company is calling this world’s first camera to feature a dual pop-up front camera. The two-camera sensors are housed in a pop-up module. The primary camera is of 32-megapixel and f/2.0 aperture while the other is an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with its 105-degree field of view. The pop-up module also houses a moonlight flash.
Vivo introduced a new camera feature called Pose Master. When you turn on the selfie Pose in V17 Pro, a frame appears on the screen to track your position, guiding you into stylish poses that stand out from the crowd. So the pose master can be a personal fashion coach-built inside the phone.
The company also included AI super night mode in the selfie front camera which takes 12-16 different frames of selfies and combines them in different dynamic ranges to give a super selfie in the night or low-light scenarios. However, this doesn’t work when it is absolutely pitch dark. For this pitch dark scenario, Vivo provided the moonlight flash where you switch on the moonlight glow that lifts your face giving stunning pictures.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”zxikm5d3e04a8f1451″]

It’s like providing a full kit on your hand.
With 48 megapixels and superb light sensitivity, the main rear camera guarantees clear, bright pictures in all situations. Along with the front the AI Super Night Mode is also included for the quad-camera setup. The upgraded HDR is used for shortening the imaging time, while composite multi-frame noise reduction technology ensures a crisp result. With the AI Super Wide Angle Camera, you can take120-degree field of view photos. With the help of Super Macro, you can Focus from 2.5cm for a real Close-up and clear view of life’s little wonders uncovering the marvels which a naked eye can’t see.
