On August 23, OPPO held the OPPO R17 new wonderful night event in Shanghai, officially releasing the OPPO R17, which had been promoted for a long time. As the main push product of OPPO in the second half of this year, OPPO R17 has almost brought a full range of upgrades compared with the previous generation. Let’s take a look at this article to see if OPPO R17 is worth buying!
1) Unique water drop screen design
OPPO R17’s screen design introduces a new design language – “water drop screen”. Compared with the current mainstream Liu Haiping, OPPO R17 uses a water drop screen that takes up less forehead space and is also more Smart beauty. The OPPO R17 uses a 6.4-inch 19.5:9 water drop screen with a screen resolution of 2340*1080. Under the design of the water drop screen, the OPPO R17 screen ratio has once again increased to 91.5%.
In order to achieve the effect of the water drop screen, OPPO R17 uses a hidden earpiece design and hides the light sensor below the screen on the right side of the water drop screen. It also utilizes the “TP+ screen infrared” that has been used on OPPO Find X. The distance sensing solution finally achieved only one camera area on the front side, which greatly saved the space on the forehead of the mobile phone.
2) The sixth generation of Gorilla Glass debut
On the 19th of last month, Corning officially released the sixth generation of Gorilla Glass. The new Gorilla Glass has a higher surface pressure than the previous generation and can withstand up to 15 drops from a 1-meter drop to a rough surface. The damage resistance is twice as high as the previous generation.
This time, the OPPO R17 series took the lead in using the sixth generation of Gorilla Glass (almost all Samsung), which is better than other products in the market in terms of damage resistance, effectively reducing the risk of a broken screen.
3) Light sense screen fingerprint
After OPPO Find X brought the 3D structured light of the dual-track periscope structure, this OPPO R17 also brought an upgrade on the unlocking – using the light-screen fingerprint technology. The optical touch screen fingerprint technology on OPPO R17 is the first to use CMOS scheme and MicroLens microlens, with a 3P lens, which greatly enhances the amount of incoming light. The internal image sensor size is 2mm*2mm, the unit pixel area is 12.5?m, resolution is 160*160. , at the top level in the industry.
In actual experience, OPPO R17’s light-sensitive screen fingerprint can be unlocked in 0.41s under the interest screen state. At the same time, it also has three kinds of technology to unlock the special effects, and it also has the experience of not being weaker than the traditional fingerprint. Interestingly, in order to solve the film problem of light-sensitive screen fingerprints, OPPO also customized the “light-sensing fingerprint film” for R17 to solve the polarization problem and avoid the influence of the film on the recognition accuracy.
4) Gradient process is upgraded again
On the previous OPPO R15, the gradient body design makes people shine. On this OPPO R17, the gradient design was upgraded again – the neon purple version of the OPPO R17 features a three-color gradient design.
At the same time, unlike the horizontal gradient of the previous work, OPPO R17 adopts a horizontal/four-way gradual scheme, so that the flow of color is no longer limited to the vertical direction. OPPO R17 also adds a “condensing layer” between the streamer layer and the dot layer. Through the laser engraving process, the fine S-curve was etched on the transparent Ningguang, and the effect of light and shadow flow was finally realized.
5) The first Snapdragon 670 mobile platform
OPPO R17 also brought further upgrades on SoC, starting a new Snapdragon 670 platform. The process of Snapdragon 670 was upgraded from 14nm to 10nm for Snapdragon 660, and the CPU architecture was upgraded from Kryo 260 to Kryo 360. %; GPU architecture upgraded from Adreno 512 to Adreno 615, performance increased by more than 25%; DSP upgraded from Hexagon 680 to Hexagon 685, the frequency increased by more than 60%.
Not only that, this OPPO R17 will also provide 8GB + 128GB version, which will also use UFS2.1 flash memory for the first time in the R series, the reading speed will be even better, and the performance advantage of the Snapdragon 670 can be exerted.
6) Rear Camera support RAM HDR shooting, front support O-moji function
Photographed above, OPPO R17 and OPPO R15 use the rear depth of 16 million pixels + 5 million pixels, of which the main camera is Sony IMX519, with a unit area of 1.22?m, the amount of light is more sufficient. The rear of the OPPO R17 also supports RAW HDR shooting, which can avoid data loss caused by compression processing. The resulting HDR photos are richer in detail and more layered, further improving the quality of backlight shooting.
On the front camera, the OPPO R17 is upgraded to a 25-megapixel Sony IMX576 sensor with a F/2.0 aperture. The noise control is better under dark light and the self-timer is clearer. Not only that, OPPO R17’s front also supports O-moji function, users can generate avatars based on their own expressions, allowing users to feel the joy of AR.
Looking at these highlights, are you also somewhat excited about OPPO R17? Compared with the previous OPPO R15, OPPO R17 is more mature in design, performance, etc., and also has its own style. For OPPO, this is obviously a huge improvement. For the user, these advances are likely to be an important reason for their choice of OPPO R17.
