As expected, vivo went ahead an announced its S17 series smartphones today in China. We got the vivo S17, vivo S17t and vivo S17 Pro which alongside the recently announced vivo S17e complete the four-strong series. The new devices sport the same curved 10-bit OLED displays (1260 x 2800 px resolution and 120Hz refresh rates) and 4,600mAh batteries with 80W fast charging. The differences come in the chipset and camera setups so let’s take a closer look.
Moving on to the cameras, the S17 and S17 Pro get a 50MP front facing cam with an f/2.0 aperture and autofocus. The selfie cams are also flanked by dual soft LED flash sensors.
vivo S17 Pro brings a 50MP IMX766V main sensor (f/1.88, 1.0 µm native pixels) with OIS while the S17 and S17t get a 50MP main cam with an f/2.0 aperture and OIS. The Pro model gets the added benefit of a 12MP portrait sensor with 2x optical zoom and an f/1.98 aperture. Both vivo S17 and S17Pro also feature 8MP ultrawide sensors and a ring LED flash.
