In case you missed it, the Vivo Y17 sports a 6.35-inch screen with HD+ 1544 x 720 resolution. To offer more screen area, Vivo mounted it with a tiny notch to house its front camera. Under the hood, the device is powered by the Helio P35 octa-core processor paired with PowerVR GE8320 graphics. It is also coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, enabling the handset to deliver a decent gaming performance.

As expected, Vivo didn’t compensate its camera offerings, as it features 13MP f/2.2 main sensor + 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens + 2MP f/2.4 triple rear shooters. For selfies, it boasts a 20MP f/2.0 snapper with AI face beauty to enhance your photos.
