Comparison: Oppo R17 Neo vs Oppo R17 Pro
As we mentioned in the beginning, the Oppo R17 Pro is a more premium device in comparison to the Oppo R17 Neo. Let’s check out the key specs that make these two devices stand far from each other.
Starting with the display and design, both the phones share the same screen size and resolution, i.e. 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 1080×2340 pixels resolution and a waterdrop-style notch on the top. However, the only difference is that the R17 Pro has an additional coating of Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which is claimed to survive 15 falls from 1 meter onto uneven surfaces. Other than this, both the phones look almost the same with a gradient back panel that shows different design from every angle.
The major differences start to show up when we compare what’s under the hood of these two phones. The Oppo R17 Pro enjoys the power of an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with a whopping 8GB of RAM while the R17 Neo settles for a slightly less powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with 4GB of RAM. Besides, the Oppo R17 Pro is backed by a 3700mAh battery with Oppo’s in-house Super VOOC Flash Charge technology, which is claimed to charge up to 40 percent in just 10 minutes, and fully charge in only 40 minutes. The Oppo R17 Neo, on the contrary, settles for a 3600mAh battery that is not supported by Super VOOC Flash Charge.
In the imaging department as well the R17 Pro takes the cake with its triple rear camera setup with a 12MP primary lens with a variable aperture of f/1.5 to f/2.4, a 20MP secondary sensor with an aperture of f/2.6, the third sensor is a TOF 3D stereo lens that ensures depth effects. The entire setup is aided with features such as Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), Dual Pixel PDAF, AI-assisted Ultra Night Mode, and more. On the other hand, the Oppo R17 Neo has a dual camera setup with a 16MP primary lens and 2MP secondary lens. Both the phones, however, share the same front camera specs, i.e. a 25MP selfie snapper with f/2.0 aperture.
