Looks like Vivo is on a launching spree this year. The company is all set to launch a new smartphone in India. For this the company has also started sending media invites also. On December 9 the company will introduce Vivo V17 in the country. This new smartphone has already been unveiled in the Russian market a few days ago. Whereas the company rebranded the phone to Vivo S1 Pro and launched it in the Philippines as a global variant.
The company media invite-only reveals that the phone will be launched on December 9 in the country however it does not reveal the name of the upcoming smartphone. By looking at the invite poster we got a hint that the Vivo next V series phone will come with a hole punch display whereas the V17 which was launched in Russia a while back comes with a waterdrop-style notch.
While on the other hand, reports suggest that the Russian variant will launch in India with a hole punch display rather than a waterdrop-style notch. However, all the other specifications of the India variant will be similar to the Russian one. Vivo has already launched Vivo V17 Pro in India a few months ago in the country. The phone comes with a dual pop up selfie camera.
