Oppo, following the quiet announcement of the Oppo F9 with a drop-shaped “monobrow”, announced the new Oppo R17 Pro smartphone with a triple camera on the back. This is the second such device on the market, but the fresh system is significantly different from the version implemented in the Huawei P20 Pro. The smartphone is equipped with a 6.4-inch screen with a resolution of Full HD + (1080×2280 pixels) and a small cutout in the form of a drop, like his brother Oppo F9 / F9 Pro. AMOLED-panel occupies 91.5% of the front panel of the phablet. According to this indicator, the manufacturer closely approached the new product to the flagship Oppo Find X (92.25%). Strong glass of the latest generation Gorilla Glass 6 is designed to protect the screen with a built-in fingerprint scanner from any damage. The heart of the device was the powerful, although not the most popular 8-core Snapdragon 710 processor with a frequency of 2.2 GHz and Adreno 616 graphics. 8 GB of RAM is available, 128 GB of internal memory, but without the possibility of expansion by cards. And now we pass to the most interesting. The main module of the triple camera is located in the middle, it is a 12-megapixel sensor with variable f / 1.5-f / 2.4 aperture, 1.4 μm large pixels and optical stabilization, almost like the Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 + and Galaxy Note 9 (f / 1.5 or f / 2.4). The smartphone itself will choose a value, depending on the shooting conditions. Manufacturers did not say anything about the functions of the second 20 megapixel camera with f / 2.6 aperture, but the third module is the TOF 3D (Time of Flight) depth sensor, with which you can create 3D models of objects and stereoscopic photos. At MWC 2018, the technology itself was demonstrated by specialists from Vivo (with Oppo, they have one owner – the famous concern BBK). The company responsibly declares that the gadget, when connected to a TV, turns into a game console. Most likely, this is an analogue of the Kinect controller, which tracks movements, but how and where it will work is still unknown. A 25-megapixel front camera with f / 2.0 aperture supports self-enhancement and face recognition. Another interesting feature of the Oppo R17 Pro is the 3700 mAh battery with fast charging Super VOOC power up to 50 watts. In general, it consists of two identical 1850 mAh batteries, charging, according to the manufacturer, simultaneously up to 40% in 10 minutes. Using a smartphone to charge other mobile devices via an OTG cable is also possible. The back of the smartphone is glass, with a gradient. Of the other interfaces are present: NFC module, Wi-Fi (802.11 ac) and Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, USB 3.1 Type-C. Supports installation of two SIM cards and a 4G VoLTE network. The operating system is represented by Android 8.1 Oreo with ColorOS 5.1 shell. Dimensions are 157.6×74.6×7.9 mm and weight 183 gr. In addition to the extended version, the standard Oppo R17 on the Snapdragon 670 chip will appear on the shelves, equipped with the same AMOLED display with a built-in fingerprint scanner. The smartphone can be bought in two versions of 6/128 GB and 8/128 GB, of other differences – without NFC, the more familiar dual camera for 16 + 5 megapixels and a 3500 mAh battery with “just fast” charging. The new Oppo R17 Pro was priced at $ 625, but even in China, the start of sales is scheduled for mid-October. But his younger brother Oppo R17 will be available on the home market by the end of the summer and will cost $ 465 or $ 510, depending on the version.
