The latest Vivo V17 comes with other exciting features, including Multi-Turbo mode, Voice Changer, and AR Stickers. A slightly more budget version would be the Vivo V15 Pro. which has similar features as the V17 model.
Vivo is holding an event on December 9th in India featuring the V17. Did you know that the recently announced V17 is not similar to this V17? Well, we agree it is indeed confusing. With at least one major change and multiple minor ones, it would all be introduced at the event. The V17 is expected to come with a punch-hole camera and it looks a bit like the S5. The V17 in India is different from other countries and is similar to the S5. We see confusions and chaos over the name in the not so distant future.
