Vivo V17 with Pinhole Selfie Camera to Launch on December 9th


The Chinese company is inviting everyone to witness the unveiling of Vivo V17 in India this coming December 9th. With a hashtag #clearasreal, the press invitation reveals a pinhole selfie camera on the top-right corner of the image. It’s the first Vivo phone to launch with the aforementioned feature.

It’s weird to see a non-pro model to be announced at a later date as it’s typically the other way around or at the same time. Nevertheless, here’s what you need to know about the upcoming V17. In a nutshell, it’s the Vivo S1 Pro with a pinhole selfie camera instead of a teardrop notch. Furthermore, it’s still the same 32MP f2.0 selfie lens. That said, you can expect the same 6.38″ FHD+ Super AMOLED with 90% screen-to-body ratio, Snapdragon 665 chipset with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, and 4500mAh battery with 18W fast charging support. The same goes for the quad-cameras that’s housed inside a diamond-cut module — featuring 48MP + 8MP ultrawide + 2MP macro + 2MP depth. In the Philippines, the S1 Pro retails for P15,999. Given it’s nearly the same phone, the company might be looking to launch the V17 for India only.
