Yesterday, OPPO held a new product launch conference and announced two new smartphones. The OPPO R17 and OPPO R17 Pro are going to be the company’s annual flagships for 2018. We have already managed to review the former model and know all of its pros and cons. But if you want to get quickly acquainted with its key features and learn how it looks, there is nothing better than this article.
There is a new trend when current high-end smartphones use a new screen named a beautiful tip. OPPO called it a ‘drop screen’ because its design is inspired by a water droplet. Anyway, as you guess the notch part carries only the front camera. But the truth is, when looking closely you can see some sensors are placed near the drop area. Due to this screen design, the screen ratio reaches 91.5%. Plus, this is the first smartphone of OPPO that comes with an on-screen fingerprint identification.
As for the key features of the OPPO R17, it is packed with a 6.4-inch screen, which is covered with the sixth generation Corning Gorilla Glass for the first time. The back uses a glass body that adopts a gradient effect. There are two color options of the streamer blue and a neon violet. As you guess, we have got our hands on the former variant.
Under the hood, the OPPO R17 carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor for the first time. It is paired with an 8GB of memory, 128GB storage, and a battery capacity of 3500mAh. The phone also runs on Android-based deep customization of the Color OS system.
At last, the OPPO R17 sports a 25MP front camera, which provides real-time adjustment of 8 modes such as face-lifting and make-up, and AI intelligently learns your beauty habits, making you more beautiful. The rear AI dual camera can identify and optimize 21 independent scenes and 800 scene combinations.
