According to reports, Vivo is working on the Vivo S17e, Vivo S17, and Vivo S17 Pro. In December 2022, Vivo debuted the S16e, S16, and S16 Pro. The upcoming smartphones’ model numbers and specifications were revealed in a report last month. New Weibo posts by Wisdom Pikachu have shed more light on the chipsets that will power the S17 trio and the expected launch date.

It is expected that the Vivo S17 series will be announced in May, according to the tipster. Thus, its arrival will coincide with China’s 618 online shopping festival, which will be held around June 18. Vivo might be able to capitalize on the festival’s increased consumer spending by timing the launch strategically.

The Reno 10 series is expected to be announced by OPPO in May in China. Vivo’s S17 will rival Reno 10’s lineup, according to the tipster. As a result, we anticipate the S17 lineup to debut in May, but we think it will be unveiled by the end of the month at the latest.

The tipster also mentioned three chipsets in the Weibo post, including the Snapdragon 778G, Dimensity 8200, and Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Vivo S17e, Vivo S17, and Vivo S17 Pro may be powered by these chipsets.
