Vivo V17 Pro teased on Bigg Boss promo video. The smartphone may be launched in India, this September
We recently reported that Vivo is gearing up to launch a new Z-series of the smartphone in India. Now, it seems like the company will soon launch another Vivo smartphone in the country since it has teased a handset in the Big Boss promo trailer, which is an Indian reality TV show. Oppo will be a sponsor of the upcoming reality TV series and it seems like the handset teased in the promo video is the rumoured Vivo V17 Pro. The promo video starts off with the celebrity Salman Khan holding the handset in a way that conceals its rear panel. Only the lower half of the device can be seen, which is white in colour with a gradient design and Vivo logo at the bottom.
The Vivo V17 Pro is expected to succeed the Vivo V15 Pro, which was a camera-centric handset with a pop-up front camera. It was also one of the first phones in its segment that came equipped with an AMOLED display, triple rear cameras, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Vivo V17 Pro is also expected to feature a similar design with a pop-up camera that houses the front camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor. As for the main cameras, it seems like smartphone makers are moving towards incorporating four cameras on the back, instead of the now-standard three sensors.
There’s no more information about the Vivo V17 Pro but we expect some more leaks to crop up as we near the device’s launch. As for Vivo, the company is reportedly planning to launch the Z1X in India by the first week of September. As per a previous report, the handset would come equipped with a 48MP main sensor on the back, which would be the main camera in triple camera setup. You can read more about the handset here.
