The vivo Y17 was finally made official. It arrives with a tall 6.35” LCD panel with HD+ resolution and the not so popular tall aspect ratio of 19.3:9. The phone has only 4 GB RAM and 128 gigs of storage. The chipset is Helio P35, built on the TSMC 12 nm FinFET process. It has eight cores with a maximum frequency of 2.3 GHz, although vivo refrained from announcing it.
The biggest selling point of the phone is clearly the triple camera. It has an 8 MP f/2.2 wide-angle camera on top, the 13 MP f/2.2 main shooter is in the middle, with the third cam being a 2 MP depth sensor. The front-facing camera is 20 MP with f/2.0 aperture.
The phone brings the 18W fast charging for the monstrous 5,000 mAh battery, the biggest power cell vivo has ever put in a smartphone. The company has put Ultra Game Mode in the vivo Y17 that allocates system resources when you need them, MediaTek updates the Helio P35 to respond to the specific needs of smartphone gamers.
The phone is already available for purchase at multiple offline stores in India. It has two colors, Mineral Blue and Mystic Purple, and only one price tag INR17,990.
