In an event earlier, the Vivo V17 Pro was formally introduced in the Philippines. It's the company's newest hero product and the upgrade of the V15 Pro.

The newest photography and vlogging phone in town!

Designed for those in need of a stylish phone for multimedia consumption and cameras, the Vivo V17 Pro boasts a stunning curved glass-like back in Knight Black and Crystal White colorways, an all-screen 6.44-inch AMOLED display, and 6 cameras in total.

In particular, the 6.44-inch AMOLED panel of this device uses an extra tall 20:9 cinematic screen aspect ratio and an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 91.65 percent. And since it is AMOLED, it has popping colors, deep blacks, and rich contrasts.  It even has an improved In-Display fingerprint scanner that is just as fast as traditional physical fingerprint readers.

Like the V15 Pro, it has a pop-up camera module to make the all-screen design possible. But this time, it has more than just one camera in front, it has two!

It uses a 32MP f/2.0 Samsung ISOCELL GD1 primary sensor paired with an 8MP f/2.2 105-degree ultra-wide selfie cam. It simply means that this phone has an ultra-wide selfie and selfie video modes.

In addition, it has one of the very few selfie cams with a dedicated handheld Night mode and if it is still not enough, it goes with a selfie LED flash.

On the elevating front cam, the earpiece, light and proximity sensors were neatly hidden as well.
A lot of cameras!

At the back, it has four cameras. It uses a 48MP f/1.8 + 8MP f/2.2 120-degree ultra wide-angle + 2MP f/2.4 4cm macro + 2MP f/2.4 depth w/ LED flash.

The creation of V17 Pro once again showcases our strong consumer-centric innovation approach. The new V series member brings brilliant camera systems on both the front and back of the smartphone to empower consumers to shoot beyond their imagination, said Charisma Buan, Vivo Philippines Public Relations Lead. V17 Pro is a masterpiece that we are extremely proud of, as it reinforces our position as a pioneer in bringing best-in-class mobile experiences to the Philippines.

As expected, the V17 Pro has its own handheld Night mode, ultra-wide time-lapse, 4K video using the main cam, and 1080p video using the ultra-wide cam. 

Under the hood, I didn't like that Vivo didn't upgrade its chip. It is still using the 11nm 2.0GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 675 AIE octa-core processor and Adreno 612 GPU. I'm not saying that Snapdragon 675 is not good, but I would have liked it so much better if it runs with a more powerful SD712 or even SD730 chip.

The RAM and storage are the same at 8GB and 128GB, respectively. Fortunately, the battery is now bigger at 4,100mAh and it has a USB-C 18W fast charging support.
