UPDATE (30 September / 7:18 PM):
It looks like the price of the Vivo V17 Pro is pretty much confirmed to be RM1699. In addition to the removed DirectD listing, the phone also appeared on a YouTube ad, complete with the same price.
ORIGINAL STORY (30 September / 6:00 PM):
The Vivo V17 Pro is due to be launched tomorrow, 1 October 2019. Most of its specs is already out in the open, with the bit of information still missing is its price. The last remaining surprise may have been spoilt, as the exact figure has been spotted earlier today.
Retailer DirectD had on its Facebook page listed the price of the Vivo V17 Pro via a shot of the phone in a retail store. The post also came with the store’s pre-order promo for the phone. The post itself appears to be gone, but another post appears to have taken the place of the previous one. It comes with the same caption, but features the V17 Pro’s promotional video instead.
To quickly recap, the Vivo V17 Pro is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and a 4100mAh battery. It also has a fingerprint sensor under its 6.44-inch Full HD+ display. It’s also expected to come with a quad-camera combo at the back, with a pair of front-facing cameras that pop up from the top.
At this point, it seems likely that the price of the Vivo V17 Pro is indeed RM1699. That said, the company has yet to announce the availability of the phone. We’ll keep you posted when we learn when that is, in addition to anything else the company may announce tomorrow.
