"The creation of V17 Pro once again showcases our strong consumer-centric innovation approach. The new v series member brings our world-renowned Elevating Front Camera to a whole new level, by incorporating not one but two front cameras," said Messi Liu HongBin, CEO of vivo Singapore. "V17 Pro is a masterpiece that we are extremely proud of, as it reinforces our position as a pioneer in bringing best-in-class mobile experiences to the global stage."

32MP Dual Elevating Front Camera to Capture Perfect Selfies at All Times 


The signature vivo Elevating Front Camera is taken to new heights with two premium front cameras, an earpiece and the Selfie Softlight all housed in the entire elevating top module. Adopting a unibody alloy design, the new elevating system is built to last, while blending mechanical action with artistic elegance.


V17 Pro's 32MP Front Camera and 8MP Wide-Angle Front Camera ensure every detail in a selfie is captured clearly. With the ability to capture wide angles up to 105-degrees, V17 Pro brings more fun and possibilities to group shots. The smartphone empowers consumers to take night selfies effortlessly with the Selfie Softlight that provides the perfect flash in the dark, and a Night Selfie feature that smartly combines multiple frames to optimize picture brightness at night.


48MP AI Quad Camera Delivers Sophisticated Photography Quality 


Shoot beyond current limits with the 48MP AI Quad Camera*. It is a ultra-clear main camera supported by telephoto, macro and wide-angle lenses. With AI algorithms embedded, it brings a new photography experience with even better photo clarity. The smartphone also features a Super Wide-Angle Camera that expands landscape shots even further.  


For photography lovers who strive to capture the smallest of details in a picture, the rear camera also features the Super Macro Camera that can focus through its 2.5cm focus lens for ultra-close shots. 


The V17 Pro smartphone also features two impressive beautifying features. The "Pose Master" comes with an in-frame function that adjusts user's angles and guides the subject to pose for better pictures. It also includes "AI Makeup" for beautification purposes to bring out the most stunning features of any person or subject.  


An Uninterrupted Visual Experience by Brilliantly Concealing the Camera, Earpiece and Sensors  

Consumers can now enjoy the ultimate expansive view with the exclusive custom made 6.44-inch Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display with a ratio of 20:9. The uninterrupted display is cleverly designed to hide the Dual Elevating Front Camera, earpiece, light and proximity sensors all inside the phone body. With its 1.75mm side-bezels, 3.8mm bottom bezel and 6.5mm rounded corners, the V17 Pro brings a screen-to-body ratio of 91.64% view. It is truly a brilliant creation that creates a supremely satisfying 'visual indulgence' that brings the mobile experience to a new level.  


With the latest E3 OLED that offers a 100% DCI-P3 colour gamut, V17 Pro brings vibrant and authentic colors to real life. Users can now enjoy playing or viewing their smartphones without straining their eyes as the phone filters out 42% of blue light and boasts TÜV Rhineland certification. In addition, its Low Brightness Anti-Flicker technology provides added protection for eyes even in the dark. This redefines watching movies on smartphones for long hours.


The smartphone also comes with vivo's industry-leading In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. The higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithms allows consumers to unlock the smartphone safely and easily. 


Strong Hardware Performance to Ensure V17 Pro Runs Smoothly at All Times 

V17 Pro is also designed for gamers. It comes with an optimized Game Mode that facilitates a new gaming experience. The Multi-Turbo acceleration technology actively tunes the operating system to ensure users can enjoy a more exhilarating game performance


Multi-Turbo integrates the AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Game Turbo, Net Turbo and Cooling Turbo, to greatly increase the efficiency of the compiler. It also has a cold start speed that increases 25%, and a warm start speed that increases 9%, ensuring V17 Pro's system can perform at its best.


Gamers can enjoy an immersive gaming experience by utilizing Game Center – a feature that can quickly check phone's performance such as phone temperature or data workload. The Ultra Game Mode also helps to turn off messages and alerts if gamers wish to be uninterrupted. 


To protect gamers' privacy, the new "Voice Changer" allows gamers to change their voices while gaming. This injects fun and transforms a regular gaming experience into an unforgettable one. 


V17 Pro is supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE processor with 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM that ensures the system and applications run smoothly. Its 4100mAh battery with Dual-Engine Fast Charging Technology brings higher durability and faster charging to allow a long-lasting mobile experience. 


The smartphone comes in either Crystal Sky or Glowing Night, adding an elegant touch to the everyday look. 


V17 Pro will be available from 16 November 2019 in Singapore starting at $599 (without contract) at authorized retailers (i.e Best Denki, Challenger, Courts), Lazada and vivo's concept store at Causeway Point.
