OPPO R17 Pro

Oppo unveiled its new R series devices in the form of the Oppo R17 and R17 Pro at the event held in China. The devices are the very first smartphones to feature Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection and pack some serious specs. Specifically, we take a look at the top five features that you care about when looking at the Oppo R17 Pro.

Oppo R17 Pro: Top Five Features

The Design – When considering the Oppo R17 Pro, there are some major achievements built into the device. First of which is the impressive 91.5% screen-to-body ratio that is achieved thanks to the all-screen display.

Oppo has opted for a notch to house the front-facing camera but it has been implemented very eloquently to be as least intrusive and noticeable to the user as possible. Opinions vary on the notch placement on a smartphone, with many claiming the presence of a notch is a lazy solution to achieve a bezel-less display without engineering an alternative method to house the front-facing cameras and sensors. While Oppo haven’t eliminated the notch entirely, this has to be the best implementation we have seen so far.

Triple rear camera with AI features – The device features a triple rear camera setup that sees a 12-megapixel f/1.5-2.4 variable aperture lens pair with a 20-megapixel f/2.6 AF lens as well as a TOF 3D stereo camera as third camera. The front-facing camera is a 25-megapixel f/2.0 selfie shooter that boasts AI features such as 3D Portrait and AI beautification to automatically detect the environment and adapt the shooting settings for the best results.

The Waterdrop Display – There’s no ignoring that Oppo has done the notch right on the Oppo R17 Pro. Referred to as the water drop, the notch is as minimal as you probably could get it. This allows a 6.4-inch display to fill the device edge-to-edge with a 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.

Not only this but the R17 Pro has an in-display fingerprint sensor – something that not even Samsung and Apple have been able to implement into its devices to date. The display is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which is the first device in the world to feature such protection.

The Battery – The Oppo R17 Pro packs a large 3700mAh battery and also Super VOOC Flash Charge technology that claims a 40% charge can be achieved in just 10 minutes. While the overall capacity would be enough to see you through a full day of use, the benefit of the Super VOOC Flash Charge technology means that even if you are running low on power that you’ll be able to top up the device extremely quickly.

Performance – Packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz 360 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver) processor, the device comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. With these specs, this device is a powerhouse that will easily see the most demanding apps or games run with ease.
