The Vivo V17 has just been announced in India. Like many of the brand’s devices, this too is a camera centric phone.
The V17 sports a 6.44-inches Full HD+ E3 Super AMOLED iView display with a punch-hole selfie camera lens that Vivo claims is the smallest one ever. An in-display fingerprint scanner allows you to unlock the phone securely. We saw the device first in a leaked poster, about a week ago.
The screen has a 20:9 aspect ratio and the slim bezels make for a 91.38% screen-to-body ratio. The panel can support up to 800 nits of brightness and has 100% sRGB spectrum, 100% DCI P3 colour gamut.
The Vivo V17 runs on Funtouch OS 9.2 based on Android 9 Pie, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The device has a dedicated microSD card slot which is part of a triple card tray that supports dual SIM with dual standby.
The phone is backed by a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 18W Fast Charging over a USB Type-C port. The front camera on the Vivo V17 is a 32MP lens which has an f/2.45 aperture, and has a Super Night Selfie mode for low light selfies.
The main cameras on the V17 are arranged in an L-shaped style and comprise a 48MP primary lens with an f/1.8 aperture that also supports Super Night Mode, an 8MP super wide-angle lens with a field-of-view of 120°, an f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP Bokeh lens with an f/2.4 aperture and a 2MP super macro lens with an f/2.4 aperture.
