Last month Vivo Kenya marked its entry into the Kenyan market by launching Vivo Y15 and Y17. Although they were much vocal about the Y15. Now, Vivo Y17 is yet another device in the company’s Y-Series of devices. As compared to Vivo Y15, Vivo Y17 is more powerful and, yes, costs a little bit more. The major difference between Vivo Y17 is the chipset, 18W fast charge support and the internal storage, the rest of the specs are similar.
Other specifications of the device include a 5000mAh big battery with fast charge support, 4GB RAM, 128GB of internal storage, a whopping 20MP selfie camera and sports a triple rear camera setup (13MP + 8MP + 2MP).
