On Thailand’s NBTC, the Vivo 1919 has appeared with Vivo V17 moniker. The NBTC certification has not revealed any specifications of the phone, but it suggests that its launch could be close at hand.

Last week, Russian tech publication Hi Tech Mail had shared real-life images of the Vivo V17. The images revealed that it has a waterdrop notch display with an in-screen fingerpint reader. It also features a diamond-patterned rear camera housing, but the arrangement of the quad camera lenses is different from that of Vivo S5.

The publication had claimed that the Vivo V17 has a 48-megapixel quad camera setup, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of built-in storage and a 4,500mAh battery. It also stated that the phone will be launched in Russia by end-November.

India is also another market that will reportedly receive the Vivo V17. 91mobiles had recently claimed that Vivo V17 will break cover in India by late November and will be available for buying by the first week of December. It could be priced around Rs 25,000. In September, Vivo India had launched the Vivo V17 Pro (first impressions) phone. There is a possibility that the Chinese firm may gradually discontinue the Vivo V17 Pro because of poor sales in India after the launch of Vivo V17.
