OPPO R17 Pro is here! It's an interesting handset and it has many firsts from the company.
The OPPO R17 Pro is now official in the Philippines. The handset marks the company's first handset that ticks with the all new Qualcomm Snapdragon 710. Aside from the powerful chipset, OPPO R17 Pro offers many firsts for the company. For one, it's the first OPPO smartphone to have a triple camera system. Secondly, the handset is the first OPPO smartphone to have the "hidden fingerprint display."
The OPPO R17 Pro
The OPPO R17 Pro is marketed in the "premium" segment. The processor suggests that it's an upper mid-tier device, but it could perform alongside some of the flagship smartphones with its power-packed hardware. Aside from the gaming-optimized chipset with Adreno 616, the phone also packs a whopping 8GB of RAM.
The handset sports the new gradient design technology which employs a light-condensed layer. Its misted glass covering allows the light to flow on the surface giving a stunning appeal to the handset.
The OPPO R17 Pro frames a 6.4-inch water-drop display with 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. The display is protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass 6 that, according to OPPO, could withstand drops to a rough surface at 1-meter height.
The camera of the OPPO R17 Pro is quite interesting. Its 12MP IMX362 dual pixel camera is equipped with a variable smart aperture feature f/1.5 and f/2.4. On top of that, the handset comes with Optical Image Stabilization that could compensate those shaky hands when capturing photos and videos. The main camera is coupled by a 20MP shooter, and the worth-noting TOF (Time of Flight) camera which allows you to capture 3D photos.
Lastly, the handset supports Super VOOC flash charge technology which charges up to 40 percent in 10 minutes. It also features a unique battery configuration, a bi-cell design.
