Vivo launched its V17 Pro device today in Lagos, Nigeria, and just amidst the launch, a non-pro variant of the device- V17 has been spotted, and rumors have it that the device is expected to launch very soon
According to a reliable source, GSMArena– a phone that is alleged to be a variant of then newly-launched V17 Pro was sighted, although until now, we haven’t had a word from vivo regarding the launch of V17 yet, and considering that a Pro device often succeed a non-pro device, then the rumor could be believable to some extent.
As for the specs of the alleged V17 device; a waterdrop display is sighted on the front of the device, alongside a small bezel on the right side. Also, unlike the Pro variant, the alleged V17 spots a tiny notch, overruling the idea of a true uninterrupted display as seen in the Pro variant.
Also, the device is not buttonless, as a power button and volume rocker are sighted on either side of the device; a USB-C port at the bottom flanked by a speaker and microphone. On the back of the device, a Quad-camera is spotted with a flash placed outside a diamond shape elevated plate that contains the four cameras.
Below the cameras– a text written on the plate reads ‘camera & music’, suggesting the two major audiences of which the device will be focussed on (I assume). There’s also text inside the plate which confirms the V17 will come with a 48MP main camera.
As for the phone storage, rumor has it that the vivo V17 will pack 8GB RAM, 128GB storage and a 4,500 mAh battery. The device is expected to officially launch towards the end of the month assuming the leak is genuine. On that note, more details of the device will be shared in the coming weeks, perhaps something new surfaces before the launch of the device.
