The vivo Y17 is a mid-range offering, so it leaves some of the Y15 premium aspects to deliver a solid performance for the lower budget. It is powered by the MediaTek’s Helio P35 with 4GB RAM and up to 128GB of Storage. It sports a 6.35-inch waterdrop notch panel, but unfortunately, the resolution is only HD+. The handset also comes with a triple camera setup composed of 13MP+8MP+2MP cameras. The front-facing camera lives inside the notch and features 20MP. The device runs Android 9 Pie with FunTouch 9 and is fueled by a massive 5,000mAh battery.
