Vivo recently launched the Vivo V17 smartphone in India. The device goes on its first sale in the country today. The device is a mid-range offering from Vivo and it features some pretty decent specifications such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, a 32MP selfie camera, and a 4,500mAh battery. Let’s have a look at the price and the features of the Vivo V17 which might make your buying decision a bit easier.
Vivo V17: Price in India
The Vivo V17 smartphone is priced at ₹22,990 in India. There is only one memory variant of the device that is launched in India which has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. There are two color variants of the Vivo V17 – Midnight Ocean and Glacier Ice.
Speaking of availability, the Vivo V17 smartphone can be bought either from the offline retail stores or the online e-commerce platforms like Flipkart, Amazon, Tata CLiQ, and Paytm Mall. If you purchase the device in the sale, you will get a pair of Vivo XE710 headphones worth INR 1,999 for free in the box.
Vivo V17: Specifications and Features
The Vivo V17 features a 6.44-inch OLED FHD+ 1080 x 2340 pixels display which the company has named as an “iView display”. The display of the device comes with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio owing to the fact that we get an almost bezel-less scenario at the front of the device. In order to ensure that there are as fewer bezels as possible, Vivo has incorporated a punch-hole camera setup with the Vivo V17, that too a pretty tiny one (the punch-hole on the Vivo V17 is the “world’s tiniest punch-hole cutout” as claimed by the company). The single punch-hole cut-out is located at the top right side of the display. The hole is dug to make room for a 32MP selfie snapper.
At the back, we get a quad rear camera setup (48MP (f/1.8) primary sensor + 8MP (f/2.2) secondary shooter + 2MP (f/2.4) bokeh lens + 2MP (f/2.4) macro unit) which comes alongside a dual-tone LED flash. The Vivo V17 camera comes with features like Ultra Stable video, portrait mode, various AI modes, and Super Night mode.
Under the hood, the Vivo V17 comes with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The internal storage of the Vivo V17 can be expanded, but one would have to let go of the secondary SIM card as the SIM tray is a hybrid one here.
The Vivo V17 is fueled with a 4,500mAh battery that gets charged with the new dual-engine 18W fast charging tech. The device features a USB Type-C charging port. Moving on to the OS, the Vivo V7 runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box with the company’s in-house FunTouchOS on top of it.
