A few days ago, the Chinese company OPPO announced the OPPO R17 and today it is the turn of the most advanced version. The OPPO R17 Pro follows the line of his little brother in points such as that gradient tone design so eye-catching or the fingerprint reader integrated under the screen , but adds other more advanced as the triple camera.
The OPPO R17 Pro also boasts a front in which the screen is the absolute protagonist, occupying no less than 91.5% of space. Crowning it there is a tab or ‘notch‘ in which OPPO has endeavored to reduce its size so that it is as discreet as possible.
As we already saw with the OPPO R17, the pro variant also bets on that notch type drop of water that is much more harmonious and discreet than others that have been seen recently. As we said, the panel occupies 91.5% of the front, both thanks to that notch and to the fingerprint reader is hidden under the screen.
The panel is AMOLED type and has an XL diagonal of 6.4 inches. However, despite the size OPPO maintains FullHD+ resolution, which we hope will have a positive impact on autonomy.
On the panel, located in that notch so small, is the front camera. It consists of a single sensor of 25 megapixels and has an aperture lens f/2.0. If we go to the back the thing changes and that is that we have not two, but three cameras. Huawei was a pioneer in this triple camera betting on the zoom, in the case of the OPPO R17 Pro is not entirely clear what is the purpose of this configuration.
The main camera, located in the center, mounts a sensor of 12 megapixels and has variable aperture f / 1.5 / 2.4, exactly as we found in the Galaxy S9 and Note 9. For its part, the camera located at the top offers 20 megapixels, but it is not clear if it has telephoto lens to zoom.
Finally, the third camera is actually a depth sensor that serves both to apply effects as background blur and to make three-dimensional captures. As pointed out in GSMArena, this type of sensors are the ones that are usually used in unlocking by facial recognition, so the location in the rear is somewhat strange.
OPPO has us used to offer very powerful configurations in terms of RAM and storage, but without mounting the most complete processor available. This is the case of the OPPO R17 Pro, which despite having 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB capacity has the Snapdragon 710 and not the 845 as the vast majority of the high-end.
The battery is usually a highlight and here the standard is again met. OPPO integrates two 1,850 mAh units that together add up to 3,700 mAh and are designed to offer fast Super VOOC charging that promises up to 40% charge in just 10 minutes.
The terminal has the ColorOS layer based on Android 8.1 and has a full set of connections that include both NFC and mini jack for headphones.
OPPO has announced the new R17 Pro in China and at the moment there is no official information about its arrival in more countries, but we expect it to leave its borders now that the company has made the leap to Europe.
The only available version offers 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and comes in the color ‘Fog Gradient’, a gradient that goes from pink to blue. The price in China is 4,299 yuan, which at the current exchange rate is about 541 euros.
