vivo has silently listed their flagship killer phone S17e on their website.
With only a week left to go until the launch of S17 lineup, vivo has jumped the gun and launched the cheapest variant of the series, the vivo S17e.
The vivo S17e, a new addition to the S series lineup, is now available for purchase on the company’s website. This announcement comes just a week before the launch of the full S17 lineup, which is expected to take place on May 31, according to GSMArena.
The budget offering boasts a Dimensity 7200 chipset, a 6.78″ AMOLED screen with 1080p resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate, and two cameras – a 64 MP main camera and a 2 MP auxiliary shooter. The phone has a 4,600 mAh battery with support for 66W charging, runs OriginOS 3 on Android 13, and supports Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity.
Available in Gold, Blue, and Black colors, the vivo S17e offers customers a choice of three memory configurations. The 8/128 GB memory configuration is priced at CNY2,099 ($300), the 8/256 GB choice is CNY2,299 ($325), and the 12/256 GB version is CNY2,499 ($355/€330).
It is unlikely the e model will be available internationally, so you may want to look out for the launch of other two models if you are outside of China.
