Oppo R17 officially revealed: This is how to do a notch

Oppo's R17 Pro will jump on the triple camera bandwagon

Oppo R17 specifications have been officially revealed by the company in China via a listing on its website. The Oppo R17 does come with a notch, but it is one of the tiniest ones that simply houses the front camera.

We also think the OnePlus 6T will feature the more powerful Snapdragon 845, rather than the more power-efficient Snapdragon 670 in the Oppo R17.

To begin with, the new Oppo R17 will come with a glass body and it will feature Twilight colour, which we saw in multiple Huawei and Honor smartphones including the latest Huawei Nova 3 and Honor 10.

The smartphone features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ display running at a resolution of 1080x2280pixels, and screen-to-body ratio of 91.5 percent. The display is protected with a coating of Corning Gorilla Glass which makes it scratch resistant and durable. The Oppo R17 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 processor paired with 8GB of RAM. The phone will also be offered with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

Unfortunately, OPPO did not fully disclose the camera setup specs. It comes with a 16MP primary and 5MP secondary shooter with LED flash. While the selfie cam gets a 20 MP sensor with an f/2.0 lens, the rear combo is still a mystery, although OPPO does mention that it is capable of recording at 800 fps thanks to the advanced AI features.

Moreover, the company has also started teasing the high-end R17 Pro which is said to be coming with triple rear cameras set up. The smartphone also ditches the physical fingerprint scanner at the front or back, and comes with an in-display one instead. The handset is backed by a 3500 mAh battery with Oppo's VOOC charging technology which promises to deliver two hours of talktime with just five minutes of charging. The phone will run Android 8.1 Oreo-based ColorOS 5.1 out-of-the-box and will include connectivity options like Bluetooth 5.0, dual 4G VoLTE and dual SIM support, among other things.
