Having announced last week that it will be launching the V17, Vivo Malaysia has finally lifted the veil off of the device. As mentioned before, the Vivo V17 is not a toned-down version of the V17 Pro, despite what the name may suggest.
To quick recap, the V17 comes with a 6.44 inch Full HD+ display with an in-display fingerprint sensor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. So this actually leaves the V17 with more internal storage space than the V17 Pro. It also comes with a slightly larger battery, rated at 4500mAh.
For its rear cameras, the phone comes with a familiar 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP quad- camera combo. While the cameras themselves are familiar, they are placed a little differently at the back of the phone.
In front, it has a 32MP camera sitting in a punch hole on the right corner of the display. Not being in a motorised popup segment also means that it lacks the accompanying depth sensor found.
The Vivo V17 is priced at RM1699. It is available for pre-order starting today, but will only be available starting this weekend, on 21 December 2019. If you want to know more about it, you can check out its page on Vivo Malaysia’s official website.
