Sagar, 20 September 2019

Chinese phone maker vivo unveiled the Snapdragon 712-powered Z1x earlier this month and now it's following it up with the vivo V17 Pro - a cool looking upper mid-ranger with a dual pop-up selfie camera.

The V17 Pro is built around a 6.44" FHD+ 20:9 Super AMOLED screen, which vivo calls Ultra FullView Display. The screen comes with a fingerprint reader underneath and has no notch, because like we said, the phone has a dual selfie camera mounted on an elevating mechanism rising from the top of the frame.

The dual camera setup comprises of a 32MP main and 8MP ultrawide angle units, with the latter having an FOV of 105 degrees. The pop-up module also houses an earpiece and a flash, which vivo calls Selfie Softlight, to help you take better selfies in low light. Besides, there's a feature dubbed Night Selfie that combines multiple frames for better results at night.

Moving on to the back, we get a quad camera setup aligned vertically in the center. It's a combination of a 48MP main (Sony IMX582), 13MP telephoto (2x zoom), 8MP ultrawide angle, and 2MP depth sensor modules. The 8MP unit can also be used to capture macro shots of objects from as close as 2.5cm.

I think SD 675 can control these camera set. Which cannot by 855 or 710. You may ask any hardware engineer or core level engineer who can explain it to you. 675 is very successful in v15, pro. Yes price at first will be high. Wait for 3 4 months. V15...

Correct... K20pRO get price cut in Flipkart sale. 29th Sep-4oct in big billion days

For a moment there I thought I has mis read and the amount was 19000/- odd, but at 29000/- it's highly overpriced. Good cameras but SD 675. Has Ravi Shastri joined Vivo board of directors, they sure are smoking the same thing.
