And while the fans await the official announcement, the device has been surfacing in multiple leaks. First, it was spotted in the hands-on images that reveal its iPhone-esque squircle camera. For the sake of standing out, the Chinese brand has tilted the camera assembly at a 45-degree angle. This week, it was spotted in a Vietnamese music video. And now before the official announcement, The Mobile Indian claims to have got hold of the official promotional images of the Vivo V17.
