The Russian V17 sports a 6.38" FHD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch, but according to a recent report, the Indian version will feature a 6.44" OLED panel with a punch hole in the top-right corner.
Another difference between the Russian and Indian V17 units is that the former has a diamond-shaped quad camera on the back, but the latter will sport an L-shaped quad camera setup.Alleged leaked image of Indian vivo V17
However, the specifications of the camera setup on the Indian unit are said to be the same as the Russian model - a 48MP main camera joined by an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor modules.This is the V17 that was launched in Russia last week
The Indian V17 will also have a different chipset - Snapdragon 675 - as opposed to the Snapdragon 665 SoC that powers the Russian V17.
The reason why vivo decided to launch two different phones with the V17 moniker is currently unknown, but we'll hopefully have more information on that when the smartphone goes official in India on December 9.
