Two persons who are privy to Vivo Philippines’ plans have separately confirmed to us that the Vivo Y17 is going to be available in the Philippines around mid-May.

(Update, May 15: This phone’s now on sale in the country! See Vivo Y17 with 5,000mAh battery, 3 cameras now available in PH.)

We are excited about its impending arrival because besides a big, 5,000mAh battery with support for 18-watt fast charging, the Helio P35-powered, 6.35-inch Y17 also boasts three AI [artificial intelligence] cameras on the back. This makes the smartphone the first Vivo midrange handset to feature a triple-rear-camera setup.

A 13-megapixel main camera is paired with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and — get this — an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter with 120 degrees field of view. If you’ve been eyeing the Vivo V15 and V15 Pro because of the said feature but are short of budget, you may now consider getting this.
