Description

A Chinese smartphone brand “Oppo” will be the first flagship smartphone brand to get its new Corning Gorilla Glass 6 which is 2x durable as compared to Glass 5. And it’s said that Oppo R17 in Australia will be having latest Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Well, Oppo R17 is unofficial and expected to be landed somewhere in August but a wide list of specification has already been revealed and according to that, Oppo R17 is expected to carry a massive 6GB of RAM, 6.4-inches AMOLED Panel, dual 16MP + 5MP rear camera, 20MP selfie shooter, Face ID, Snapdragon 710, 128GB of onboard memory and 3415mAh non-removable battery. Other highlights of Oppo R17 are listed below.

Display

Just like several recently released devices, Oppo R17 houses a gorgeous Notch and a small Chin. It does bring 6.4-inches AMOLED screen which is large and sport a resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. The handset dishes out 19:9 aspect ratio and comprises 86.7% screen-to-body ratio. The display is sharp, crisp and bright and reproduces excellent colours. Moreover, the contrast ratio is great so does viewing angles.

Camera and Battery

The Oppo R17 is carrying a total of 3 cameras. Outback, you’ll see a dual camera – 16MP + 5MP – whereas a gorgeous 20MP sensor is sitting on its front for capturing respectable quality selfies with your loved ones. The device is rumoured to house 3D Facial Recognition system for faster and secure Face unlock. Most interestingly, Oppo R17 will be capable enough to create Omiji which sounds similar to Oppo Find X. The other camera features are included Geo-Tagging, Touch Focus, Face Detection, HDR, and Panorama. Users can record videos at 2160p@30fps, though.

The biggest size of Oppo R17 enables a smartphone to boast a 3415mAh battery which will definitely be enough for users especially when it comes to using the handset for 24 hours period with moderate to heavy usage. And if you’re looking to charge Oppo R17 rapidly, Oppo has added VOOC Flash Charge (Yahoo!).

Performance and Storage

Performance-wise, Oppo flagship smartphones always shine and interestingly, Oppo R17 is no different. The device is armed with Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 which is hooked with a whopping 6GB of RAM. Together, 10nm FinFET Chipset and a massive memory tag-team make light work of gaming applications and even the most intense multitasking scenarios.

Moving on its built-in memory section, Oppo R17 is equipped with a huge 128GB of onboard memory which can be expanded further up to 256GB via microSD card. Thus users can save oodles data such as images, audio & video songs, files, documents and even movies. The drawback is, users won’t be allowed to use SIM and microSD card simultaneously. 

Price

It’s indeed to be expensive whenever it lands. The Oppo R17 Price in Australia is expected in-between the range of AU$650-700. The handset will reveal later in August and will be available in 4 sensational colours – Black, Blue, Red, and White.

Platform and Connectivity

Connectivity options that come alongside Oppo R17 are Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Hotspot, Bluetooth 4.2, LE GPS with A-GPS support, and several others.

As far as Oppo R17 software factor is concerned, it runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with no defined timeline of an upgrade.
