The Oppo R17 Pro has finally been made official. Although this smartphone comes with lesser processor, but at the same time boasts of more cameras and SuperVOOC support on all units.The Oppo R17 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 710 chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and no microSD card support.
There’s a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel which features the waterdrop-style notch introduced with the F9/F9 Pro and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The display unit is protected by Corning’s latest Gorilla Glass 6 and according to Oppo, the screen-to-body ratio stands at the impressive 91.5%.
Camera-wise, it comes with a 25MP f/2.0 on the notch at the front, while the rear features the industry’s second triple sensor alignment. Its centerpiece is a 12MP 1/2.55″ sensor with a variable f/1.5-f/2.4 aperture lens coming straight from the Galaxy S9+ and the Note9.
The secondary 20MP unit is of unclear application, while third camera is actually a 3D TOF depth sensor. We’ve only seen those at the front of phones so far, where they enable the 3D face unlock feature. In this case, according to Oppo, it can be used for 3D photo capturing or even connecting it to your TV and turning it into a game console.
The Oppo R17 Pro has 3,700 mAh, which is separated into two halves – 1,850 mAh each. This enables the 50W SuperVOOC charging technology that Oppo debuted with the Find X Lamborghini Edition and promises 40% charge in 10 minutes with the provided charger.
One of the most unpopular feature with this phone is that found in the R17 Pro is the under-display fingerprint sensor.
Android 8.1 Oreo comes with the phone out of the box skinned with the company’s own ColorOS 5.1 system overlay.
