|Oppo R17 Pro|
A few months back in China, Oppo announced the R17 Pro, new upper mid range phone with three rear cameras. That phone rolls out to the rest of this world this November.
This is our Oppo R17 Pro, the display on the Oppo R17 pro spans 6.4 inches diagonally and is fitted with a full HD plus Amoled panel. It has the same water drop notch as on the Oppo F9 and is reinforced with Corning Gorilla Glass six to make it tougher against scratches.
Turn it around and you’ll be greeted with this beautiful matte gradient which is quite refreshing in a sea of glossy options and is supposedly less of a fingerprint magnet. This particular color is called radiant mist and is reminiscent of the Northern Lights.
Oppo R17 Pro, which kind of originated this new gradient style finish when it launched back in February, but phone is pretty nonetheless. That blue to purple gradient goes from left to right, and extends all the way down to the phone’s bottom frame. The phone will also be available in emerald green and imposing presence.
On the back of the throne are three main cameras. Let’s go from bottom to top, first is a secondary 20 megapixel camera that lets us zoom in on subjects and helps with background blur. In the middle is the main 12 megapixel wide angle camera which can switch between f 1.5 and f 2.4 depending on lighting conditions.
And finally top camera is the time of flight sensor that lets you create 3d models out of real world objects. You can 3d print these models similar to a feature on the Sony Xperia XZ1.
On the front, Oppo R17Pro has a 25 megapixel selfie camera staying true to its selfie expert roots. Also,the front camera has what Apple is calling 3d structured tech for face recognition and visible light is projected onto your face which in turn is used for faster, more accurate face recognition.

fingerprint scan in our time with the phone. It was accurate and snappy.
The phone is powered by Snapdragon is mid range 710 processor with 8 GB of RAM and 128 gigabytes of storage. But while most new phones have the new Android pie this phone still runs Android 8.1 Oreo Oppo color OS skin on top of the phone has two batteries each with a capacity of 18 that powers combined using its buy sell approach. You get a grand total of 3700 hours.
Talking of charging R17 Pro comes with super flash charge just like on the Lamborghini edition of the Oppo find X. Oppo promise 40% battery life in 10 minutes or a complete charge of 0 to 100 in only 35 minutes. That’s crazy fast.
