Vivo V17 for India will have a punch hole display and a different camera design


The Vivo V17 Pro already launched back in September and has even received price cuts in some markets. Vivo announced a non-pro model in Russia last month and is set to announce it in India on December 9. However, a new leak has confirmed that the Vivo V17 launching in India will have a different design from the Russian variant.

We already knew the Indian version will look different, at least with respect to the front, thanks to a launch poster that was released last week. Now photos of the device have leaked and they show the phone will not only look different on the front but also on the rear.

The source of the leak is 91Mobiles and it is a promotional image showing the device in the color variants it will be available in. The phone sports a punch-hole display, with the hole positioned at the top right corner. It has been reported that the display will be called iView display and it will measure 6.44-inches in size with an FHD+ (1080 x 2340) resolution.

On the back, the Vivo V17 for India ditches the diamond-shape camera housing for one similar to that of the Smartisan Nut Pro 3. However, the fourth sensor is placed at the bottom instead of at the top. The LED flash also has a different design. This camera design will be pretty popular next year. Leaks have even revealed that Samsung’s S11 series, as well as the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71, will adopt the same rear camera design with the differences boiling down to the number of cameras and the position of the sensors.


The source has also revealed that the Vivo V17 for India will have a 48MP f/1.8 primary rear camera, an 8MP f/2.2 secondary camera, and two 2MP sensors. There is no mention of the selfie camera’s specification but it is believed to be a 32MP sensor.

The phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 665 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage that can be expanded. There is also an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 4500mAh battery with support for 18W fast charge via a USB Type-C port. When the phone launches next week, it will be available in Glacier Ice and Midnight Ocean and an expected price tag below INR 20,000 (~$279).
