Vivo Malaysia has just recently launched their brand-new smartphone, the Vivo V17 locally. It’s a mid-range smartphone with the world’s slimmest in-display design. The smartphone’s key feature is its 6.44″ Super AMOLED Ultra O Screen. It is a punch-hole display and is apparently the slimmest of its kind in the industry. The display itself also has a 20:9 aspect ratio so it’s rather tall. It also possesses an in-display fingerprint scanner. Vivo’s new smartphone is powered by a mid-range processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675E, that’s mated to 8GB of RAM and a generous 256GB of internal storage. There’s also a large 4,500 mAh battery inside to keep the lights on

V17 features a powerful AI Quad Camera which allows users to unlock unlimited possibilities. The 48MP Main Camera, 8MP Super Wide-Angle Camera, 2MP Macro Camera and 2MP Bokeh Camera line-up, together with the embedded AI algorithms, 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. With a 32MP Front Camera, the V17 helps users capture high quality selfies and group shots effortlessly.  To complete the professional shot options, the smartphone also features the “Super Night Mode” and “Super Night Selfie” features that enhance clarity even in night shots, offering best-in-class photo quality anytime, anywhere.

Vivo’s new phone comes in two different colours which are Admiral Blue and Crystal White, with both colourways available in Malaysia on the 21st of December 2019. The smartphone will be available for pre-orders on all Vivo’s channels including the Vivo online store. It will also be available in-stores and if you pre-order in Vivo Concept Stores you’ll get an additional 1-year screen crack warranty and 2 years phone warranty. V17 in Admiral Blue and Crystal White will be available in Malaysia on 21 December 2019 for RM1,699.
