Around the same time, the Vivo Y78+ (t1) variant was also introduced. Now, indications of another addition to the line-up are making waves as the Vivo Y17s has surfaced on the Geekbench website, hinting at a potential release soon.
From the Geekbench data, the Vivo Y17s, with the model number V2310, showcased noteworthy performance metrics.

Further details revealed that the phone is expected to have 4GB of RAM (listed peculiarly as 3.66GB). It's also anticipated to come with Android 13 pre-installed, complemented by Vivo's Funtouch OS skin. Connectivity details from recent listings indicate the device will feature 4G along with Bluetooth 5.0. As for the phone's launch in India, details remain elusive, but the market is buzzing with expectations of a release in the forthcoming months.
When reflecting upon the device's name, the Vivo Y17s seems to be positioned as an updated version of the Vivo Y17. However, given that the latter was unveiled about four years ago, it's plausible the two might not be directly related. Echoing the pattern of the Vivo Y series, it's speculated that the Vivo Y17s will be tailored for those seeking budget-friendly options but with modest specifications. Predictions include a sizable display with a refresh rate of 90Hz or higher, a sturdy 5,000mAh battery, and a mid-tier MediaTek processor.
