The back brings a 64 MP main camera and a 2 MP auxiliary shooter that assists the background blur in portrait shots.

The phone has a 4,600 mAh battery that supports 66W charging through the USB-C port on the bottom. It runs OriginOS 3 on top of Android 13 and supports Wi-Fi 6 and 5G connectivity.

vivo S17e Price and Availability

The vivo S17e is offered in three colors – Gold, Blue, and Black, the former two having a neat sand design developed by new three-layer coating technology.

The phone is already up for sale. The 8/128 GB memory configuration is CNY2,099 ($300/€275), the 8/256 GB choice is CNY2,299 ($325/€300), while the 12/256 GB version is CNY2,499 ($355/€330).

The e phones from the S series rarely leaves China, so we’ll keep our eyes peeled for the S17 and S17 Pro that are likely going international as a part of the V family.
