vivo is expanding its smartphone portfolio in the Philippines with the launch of the vivo Y17s, a budget-friendly phone that offers impressive features and performance. The vivo Y17s is expected to hit the local market soon, as seen on a listing on vivo’s website and Shopee page.
The vivo Y17s is a starter phone with a 6.56-inch HD+ LCD display with a 1612×720 pixel resolution and a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.
The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 processor, an octa-core chipset that can easily handle gaming and multitasking. The phone also comes with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card.
The vivo Y17s has a dual-camera setup on the back, consisting of a 50MP main camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The main camera has an f/1.8 aperture and supports slo-mo, panorama, and night mode. The depth sensor helps create a natural bokeh effect for your portraits.
The selfie camera on the front is an 8MP sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and supports beautification and AI features.
The vivo Y17s has a massive 5000mAh battery that can last for a whole day of usage. The battery also supports 15W fast charging via USB-C. The phone also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a dual SIM slot, and Funtouch OS 13 on top of Android 13.
The vivo Y17s is priced at PHP 6,999 in the Philippines, which is quite affordable for its specifications and features. However, to save even more money, you can get the phone for only PHP 5,399 during vivo’s 10.10 Brand Tipid Festival sale.
The vivo Y17s is available in two color options: Glitter Purple and Forest Green. You can add the phone to your cart on Shopee as soon as it becomes available and get it delivered to your doorstep.
