Vivo Malaysia just unveils its L-shaped quad-camera phone, which is the Vivo V17. Sometime around last week, Vivo India reveals the Vivo V17, and now it’s already here in Malaysia. We will be getting our hands on the phone very soon. For now, here what you need to know about it.
First of all, the Vivo V17 features a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Ultra O Screen display with a screen resolution of 2400×1080 pixels. Upfront the Vivo V17 also comes punch-hole display which houses the selfie camera. The phone has a 91.38% screen-to-body ratio which almost makes the Vivo V17 bezeless. As usual, the phone comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner which allows unlocking the phone seamlessly.
The rear of the Vivo V17 features a quad-camera setup which is aligned in L-shape. The quad-cameras are placed inside the rectangular camera bump. This is the first time, Vivo has arranged the camera in that following manner. Seems like this is going to be the trend because next up, Samsung also is planning to launch its smartphone with L-shaped cameras.
For the camera wise, the Vivo V17 features a 48MP wide camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and two 2MP cameras. The first one is for the bokeh lens and the other lens is for the macro shots. Whereas, the front it comes with a 32MP selfie shooter for you to take clear selfies.
Under the hood, the Vivo V17 is powered by the Snapdragon 675 processor which is mated to the 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. This is the first time, I am hearing Vivo smartphone is equipped with a 256GB internal storage. It has come to my surprise to notice Vivo is mating such huge storage for its mid-range Snapdragon processor. Powering the Vivo V17 is the large 4,500mAh battery which supports the 18W wireless charging technology via USB-C.

Pricing and Availability
The Vivo V17 only comes with a single variant which is the 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. For the pricing wise, the Vivo V17 is priced at RM1,699. There are two colours available at the moment which is the Admiral Blue and the Crystal White. Personally, I like the Admiral Blue.
After the official launch today, Vivo has revealed the official date the phone will be available for sale. You can start to purchase the Vivo V17 from the Vivo online store starting 21st December 2019.
