Vivo has been on the launching spree, since the beginning of this year. We have already seen some good launches this year, from the stable of Vivo, and definitely, we are expecting some more launches this year. Currently, Vivo is the third largest mobile phone company in India, as per its sales volume. Currently, it is market share is little over than 10 percent, and the kind of growth it has demonstrated in past few months, it is poised to become the second largest mobile phone company in India. The best thing is, Vivo has an attractive portfolio of devices in India, which is affordable as well. Also, it is one of the mobile companies which leads the offline retail sales, as we know most of the mobile companies have opted for online retail sales, bring down their offline sales. One of the top draws of Vivo phones is its innovative features, that is available at an affordable price. We just hope that with the new launch of the Vivo will maintain the same flavor, which the old Vivo phones have. We have already got the glimpses of Vivo’s innovative approaches in Vivo Apex, Vivo V15, and Vivo V15 Pro.
The new phone from Vivo is Y17, and it is going to be a premium phone with premium features. In this article, you will come to know why you should buy this new smartphone from Vivo. In other words, if you are already planning to buy Y17, but you are not sure, then this article will definitely help you out. This phone will be sold in India soon, through online as well as offline sales channels. Let’s start with the display features. The phone is going to have a 6.35-inch screen, with a resolution of 720×1544 pixels. From the initial images, we could see that there is a waterdrop-shaped notch, with a small chin located at the bottom of the display. From the initial looks, we can say that this Vivo phone looks a lot different from its older counterparts. We can see the niche metal finish of the phone at the back. Unlike some of the premium flagships released this year, this phone is not going to have an on-screen fingerprint sensor, rather it is going to have a fingerprint sensor at the back. To be honest, we didn’t expect it and we were quite surprised about it when we confirmed this. From the image, one can sense that the volume, as well as the power button, is located on the right-hand side of the phone. On the bottom edge of the phone, one can find the microphone, speaker grille, and the micro-USB port. It has got an HD+ LCD display that comes with 19.3:9 aspect ratio, along with 89 percent screen-to-body ratio.
The new Vivo y17 is going to come with Funtouch OS 9, that is actually based on Android Pie or Android 9. Funtouch OS 9 is one of the most stable customized form OS, which is known for better user convenience and faster performance. Now let’s talk about the thing that is under the hood. Vivo Y17 will have MediaTek Helio P35 octa-core processor. It will have 4GB RAM, while the internal storage is at 128GB. Somehow, we feel that 4G is a bit less for a premium phone like Y17, and this will affect the overall performance of the phone when the user multitasks or install multiple applications or run applications that are resource hungry. Most of the premium phones nowadays come with minimum 6GB RAM, and the high-end ones might have 8GB or 12 GB RAM. However, there is a strong possibility, that Vivo might have done this just to keep the costs in control and make the phone affordable.
Vivo is known for shipping the premium camera with its phones, and with Y17 also it has managed to provide a power-packed camera. The phone will have an AI-based triple camera setup at the rear. The triple camera setup is made up of one 13-megapixel sensor (f/2.2 aperture), one 8-megapixel sensor (f/2.2 aperture), and a 2-megapixel sensor (f/2.4 aperture). Y17 will have a rear flash as well, which is actually concealed beneath all the sensors. The camera will be loaded with features such as time-lapse, PDAF, AI Face Beauty, HDR, and super wide-angle mode. It is also going to have a selfie camera of a 20-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The selfie camera has some cool features such as AI Face beauty, Gender detection, live photo, HDR, panorama, along with different filters. The camera specification looks good and impressive and certainly lives up to the standards of Vivo.
The phone will be shipped with a powerful battery of 5000 mAh, which supports 18 W dual engine fast charging. It has got all the basic connectivity options, that includes Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, Micro-USB with OTG, FM Radio and GPS. Apart from this, it is going to have multiple sensors such as gyroscope, digital compass, ambient light sensor, and accelerometer. The phone will be launched in two colors, that is Mystic Blue and Mystic Purple. From the unofficial sources, we have learned that the phone will be priced little under Rs. 30,000. If this turns true, then Vivo Y17 can be a winner all the way. Users definitely want premium smartphones at a premium price.
