In addition, the screen supports 120Hz refresh rate, 300Hz touch sampling rate, manual maximum brightness of 600nit, global excitation brightness of 1000nit, local peak brightness of 1300nit, and 10bit color depth (the S17 does not support 360-degree brightness adjustment, S17t does not support 1 billion color/color vision enhancement / 360 degree brightness adjustment).
In terms of performance, vivo brings three chip platforms to the vivo S17 series for the first time.

Officials said the vivo S17 series achieved a new breakthrough in portrait while sticking to the premise of thin and light. Through the “sensitive fill light dual wheel drive”, at the same time has the leading sensitive ability and professional fill light technology. vivo S17 series is the first to upgrade the photosensitivity of front and rear main cameras. With 50 million pixels in front, vivo has the largest f / 2.0 front aperture so far, and the light input is increased by 50%; The rear is equipped with 50 million super light moving image lens, the whole system uses about 1/1.57 inch outsole sensor, with OIS optical anti-shake, the light input is increased by more than 3 times.
In addition, vivo S17 Pro uses a professional telephoto portrait lens with 2x optical zoom, and for the first time, it can shoot the moon on the ground, combining it with the main shot, so that the moon can be framed with mountains, rivers, lakes, seas and city landmarks. vivo S17 Pro also debuted a multispectral sensor in vivo phones. It has 13 channels, which is officially equivalent to 13 eyes. It can decompose light in great detail. vivo also said that combining the sensor with vivo’s years of computational photography technology, it achieved a record 92.7 percent accuracy in exposure and white balance, far exceeding the industry average.
vivo S17 series also brings a new wide-angle soft light selfie. The front-facing wide-angle pursuit lens allows free zoom between 0.8x and 2x. Paired with the newly upgraded wide-angle dual soft light, everyone can be gently illuminated whether taking a selfie or taking a photo. vivo S17 series is also equipped with a new smart soft light ring. The diameter of the soft light ring is increased by more than 20%. The size of the soft light ring is almost a small adult ring. At the same time, combined with vivo hypersensing computing engine, it can intelligently adjust the most suitable color temperature of fill light according to the external light, and realize brilliant portrait in both warm and cold light. There is also a new soft light food mode, easy to shoot food blockbusters.
The vivo S17 series separates soft light from flash and takes inspiration from professional photography to create a “slow-door portrait flash” derived from single-lens reflex cameras, according to officials. This professional flash function, through the tacit cooperation between the fill light and the camera shutter: at the flash moment, the portrait is illuminated, and then the slow shutter speed is used to brighten the background, so as to achieve a perfect match between the person and the scene.
