OPPOSON launched R17 and R17 Pro smartphones have been doing laps on the interweb for a long time. More recently, smartphones have been spotted at the TENAA certification site, which further revealed that one of the devices would include an integrated fingerprint sensor on the screen. Now a datasheet of the OPPO R17 has been unveiled Weibo to reveal all material details of the next device.
The OPPO R17 would display a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with an incredible aspect ratio of 91.5%. The screen can contain an excerpt from the Essential Phone type to accommodate the front camera and the latest 6-layer Gorilla Glass protection. The handset has an optical scanner for biometrics, which is placed under the screen.
The strange thing is that the OPPO R17 is supposed to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC under his care. The American chip maker never announced the mobile platform; instead, he launched the Snapdragon 710 as a direct successor to the SD 660. That's why we advise you to take chipset news with a grain of salt. In the meantime, the device should have 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage space.
In the camera department, the OPPO R17 probably has a 25 megapixel Sony IMX576 front sensor with AI and 3D portrait. The rear camera must now boast two 16MP + 5MP sensors in "Super Night" mode. The device must be pre-installed with Android 8.1 ColorOS 5.2 Oreo-based, ready-to-use and contain a 3500 mAh battery with VOOC flash support via USB Type-C port.
The datasheet provided does not contain the price data of the OPPO R17. However, we would not have to wait until the launch date is scheduled for the end of August or the beginning of September 2018. Apparently the telephone is, just like its predecessors, exclusively for China.
