Vivo V17 Pro Design And Display
Vivo v17 Pro has a very beautiful design. The body is made of glass, Corning gorilla glass 6 to be exact which is also what is at the front, on top of the display with a plastic frame around it. Speaking of the display, it is a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 19:9 aspect along with a fingerprint sensor underneath. The display also doesn’t have any notch or punch hole housing the front-facing camera.
The front-facing camera here, which is a dual-camera setup, is in a motorized compartment that slides out when needed and goes back inside when not in use. At the back are four cameras with an LED flash. Overall, this device weighs 201.8grams and measures 9.8mm in thickness. Colour options here for this device are Crystal Black, Crystal Sky and Midnight Ocean, all which look amazing underneath that glass.
