It houses cutting-edge features such as the FHD + Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display, professional-grade 48MP AI Quad Camera, plus stunning makeover features created to compliment the lifestyle of today’s young and stylish consumers.
“The creation of V17 Pro once again showcases our strong consumer-centric innovation approach.

32MP Dual Pop-Up Selfie Camera to Capture Perfect Selfies at All Times
The signature Vivo Pop-Up Camera steps up another level. Now, two premium front cameras, an earpiece and the Selfie Softlight are housed in the entire elevating top module. Adopting a unibody alloy design, the new elevating system is built to last, while blending mechanical action with artistic elegance.
V17 Pro’s 32MP Front Camera and 8MP Wide-Angle Front Camera ensure every detail in any selfie is captured clearly. Able to capture wide angles up to 105-degrees, V17 Pro brings more fun and possibilities to group shots. And to empower consumers to take perfect night selfies effortlessly, V17 Pro is complimented with the Selfie Softlight that lights up the dark, and Night Selfie feature that smartly combines multiple frames to optimize picture brightness at night.
48MP AI Quad Camera Delivers Sophisticated Photography Quality
Shoot beyond current limits with the 48MP AI Quad Camera*. It is a super-clear main camera supported by telephoto, macro and wide-angle lenses. With AI algorithms embedded, it brings a new photography experience by capturing even better photo clarity. The smartphone also features a Super Wide-Angle Camera that expands landscape shots even further.
For photography lovers that strive to capture the smallest details of a picture, the 13MP Optical Zoom offers multiple zoom options (2x optical and 10x digital) and is the standout feature. If that is not enough, the rear camera also features the Super Macro Camera that can focus through its 2.5cm focus lens for ultra-close shots.
To complete the professional shot options, the V17 Pro smartphone also features 2 impressive beautifying features. The “Pose Master” comes with an in-frame function that adjusts user’s angles and guides the subject to pose for better pictures. It also includes “AI Makeup” for beautification purposes to bring out the most stunning features of any person or subject.
An Uninterrupted Visual Experience by Brilliantly Concealing the Camera, Earpiece and Sensors
Consumers can now enjoy the ultimate expansive view with the exclusive custom made 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display with a ratio of 20:9. The uninterrupted display is cleverly designed to hide the Dual Pop-Up Selfie Camera, earpiece, light and proximity sensors all inside the phone body. With its 1.75mm side-bezels, 3.8mm bottom bezel and 6.5mm rounded corners, the V17 Pro brings a screen-to-body ratio of 91.64% view. It is truly a brilliant creation that creates a supremely satisfying ‘visual indulgence’ that elevates the mobile experience to a new level.
With the latest E3 OLED that offers a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, V17 Pro brings vibrant and authentic colors to real life. Users can now enjoy playing or viewing their smartphones without feeling eyestrain (contrasting with E2 display) as V17 Pro filters out 42% of blue light and boasts TÜV Rhineland certification. In addition, its Low Brightness Anti-Flicker technology provides added protection for eyes even in the dark. This will completely redefine watching movies on smartphones for long hours.
The smartphone also comes with Vivo’s industry-leading In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. With higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithms, allowing consumers to unlock the smartphone safely and easily.
Strong Hardware Performance to Ensure V17 Pro Runs Smoothly at All Times
V17 Pro is also designed for gamers. It comes with optimized Game Mode that brings out a new gaming experience. The Multi-Turbo acceleration technology actively tunes the operating system to ensure users can enjoy a more exhilarating game performance.
Multi-Turbo integrates the AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Game Turbo, Net Turbo and Cooling Turbo, which greatly increases the efficiency of the compiler. It also has a cold start speed that increases 25%, and a warm start speed that increases 9%, ensuring V17 Pro’s system can perform at its best.
Gamers can enjoy an immersive gaming experience by utilizing on Game Center – a feature that can quickly check phone performance such as, phone temperature or data workload. When involved in serious competition, the Ultra Game Mode helps to turn off messages and alerts, allowing gamers to focus all their attention on winning.
To protect gamers’ privacy, the new “Voice Changer” allows gamers to change their voices while gaming. This adds a little bit more fun and transforms a regular gaming experience into an unforgettable one.
V17 Pro is supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor with 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM that ensures performance for applications and system can be operated smoothly at any time. Its 4100mAh battery with Dual-Engine Fast Charging Technology brings higher durability and faster charging that ensures the smartphone provides a long-lasting mobile experience.
