Even though vivo has not mentioned the name of the device, it is expected to be vivo V17. Notably, it has a dewdrop notch and a diamond-shaped camera module at the back. The launch comes less than three months after the company had launched vivo V17 Pro with as many as six cameras in the country. To recall, it was the first-ever smartphone to feature a dual pop-up selfie camera mechanism.

Vivo has sent media invites for the launch of a new V-Series smartphone in India on December 9. Along with this, it has also posted a teaser image on its Twitter handle.

The new smartphone is likely a re-branded version of the vivo S1 Pro which is retailing in Russia. This was also reported by tipster Ishan Agarwal who claimed that the vivo S1 Pro would launch in India soon, and as the model is rebranded vivo V17, this does seem to fit in with the vivo V17 India launch speculation. To recall, the vivo S1 Pro global variant launched in the Philippines is different from the vivo S1 Pro China variant launched in May.
The vivo V17 is expected to feature a 6.38-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Super AMOLED FullView Display and should be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, bundled with 8GB of RAM. It will have a quad rear camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a 108-degree field of view (FoV). It also houses a 2-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. For selfies, the Vivo V17 smartphone houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera sensor.
