The Oppo R17 Pro was finally made official yesterday, and it came with quite some numbers of industry-first high-end features. It is actually a good alternative for the Oppo Find X, though coming with lesser chipset, but with more cameras and Super VOOC support on all its units. Read on and get more information about the Oppo R17 Pro features, specifications, price and its global availability.
Oppo R17 Pro Features
The Oppo R17 Pro has a Snapdragon 710 chipset coupled with an 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The internal storage is non-expandable as the device has no microSD card support.
The Oppo R17 Pro also came with a 6.4 inch display with featured a waterdrop-style notch just like the ones seen on the Oppo F9 and Oppo F9 Pro. The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 6 according to a statement by the brand. The screen-to-body ratio of the phone stands at an impressive 91.5%.
The camera department packs some exciting features too. The Oppo R17 Pro has a 25MP f/2.0 camera on the notch located at the front, while the rear features the industry’s second triple sensor alignment. It packs a 12MP f/2.55 inch sensor with a variable f/1.5 – f/2.4 aperture lens coming straight from the Samsung Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy Note9.
The secondary camera is a 20MP unit with an unclear application, while the third camera is actually a 3D TOF depth sensor. We have only seen such lens at the font of pones so far, which has a 3D face unlock feature. In the case of the Oppo R17 Pro, the brand said it can be used for 3D photo capturing or even connecting it to your TV and turning it into a game console.
Another fascinating new feature that the Oppo R17 Pro has, is the 3700mAh battery which is separated into two halves, 1850mAh each. This enables the 50W Super VOOC charging technology that Oppo debuted with the Oppo Find X Lamborghini Edition, and it promises 40% charge in 10 minutes with the provided charger.
Another rare feature that came with the Oppo R17 Pro is the under-display fingerprint sensor. The phone is powered with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with the company’s own Color OS 5.1 system on top. See the full specifications below.
