It seems that Vivo is on a launching spree this year and it’s all because of the success it garnered in the Indian smartphone market in the recent past. After unveiling the S1, Z1 Pro and Z1 in the midrange segment, Vivo brought the U10 and U20 for those who want a decent handset at a lesser price. In the premium segment, Vivo offered the V17 Pro with a dual pop-up selfie camera in September. Now it has once again disrupted the market with its new offering in the form of V17. Like the previous Vivo smartphone, the Vivo V17 features a big display, great cameras and a long-lasting battery. Also, in V17, Vivo seems to have improved upon its design language, which was already impressive.

To understand what Vivo has actually come up with, you first need to look at the phone. If the Vivo V17 Pro was gorgeous, the Vivo V17 looks stunning.

It sits perfectly in your palm thanks to the curved back design and even the translucent case that comes with the unit.
There are very thin bezels across the sides, measuring 1.85mm but slightly thicker on the chin at 3.3mm. The USB Type-C charging port, speaker, and microphone are placed at the bottom of the Vivo V17, while the volume rocker and power button are present on the right side. At the top, there’s nothing save the noise cancellation microphone. The left side bears a dual-SIM card tray with a dedicated microSD card slot. The rear camera module which was placed at the centre is moved to the top left with a slight change in design. Overall, the smartphone is designed to appeal to millennials and Gen Z.
