After announcing the V17 Neo and V17 Pro in August and September respectively, vivo has announced the vanilla V17. But, it's not exactly a new phone. It's actually a rebranded S1 Pro that was launched in the Philippines earlier this week.

The vivo V17 is built around a 6.38" Super AMOLED display that has a 2340x1080 pixel resolution and a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric security. It has also a notch up top housing the 32MP selfie camera.

Around the back, the V17 has a 48MP main camera joined by an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor modules arranged in a diamond formation.

The smartphone comes in a single 128GB storage option, but it does have a microSD card slot allowing storage expansion by up to 256GB.
