The OPPO R17 Pro boasts a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch. It’s the world’s first smartphone to feature Gorilla Glass 6, Corning’s toughest smartphone glass to date that’s claimed to withstand consecutive drops.
While you admire the striking exterior, OPPO would want you to be impressed with the camera on the OPPO R17 Pro. To be honest, it does look very good, at least judging from the spec sheet and some sample photos I’ve seen floating around the interweb.
The triple-camera system comprises a 12MP f/1.5-2.4 variable aperture lens, a 20MP f/2.6 secondary shooter and a 3D depth sensor. The main camera comes with optical image stabilisation.
If you’ve been blown away by the Huawei Mate 20 Pro’s amazing Night Mode, you may be impressed with the OPPO R17 Pro’s Ultra Night Mode, too.
On the front, there’s a 25MP selfie shooter with AI Beautification.
