The Vivo V17 Pro features a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display having an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a screen-to-body of 91.65%, which is quite impressive for such a mid-range phone.

The main highlight of the phone is the selfie camera, but on the back also there is a quad-camera setup on the back. On the back, there is a primary 48-megapixel primary Sony IMX582 sensor. Along with that, there is a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, 8-megapixel wide-angle lens and 2-megapixel depth sensor for portrait shots. On the front, there is a primary 32-megapixel shooter along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens. And the front camera module pops up when taking a selfie.
