Flagship grade camera smartphones have been launched back to back in the past couple of weeks. From Pixel 3 to iPhone XS or from Huawei Mate 20 Pro to OnePlus 6T, we have seen some great camera smartphones in recent days.
On the other hand, OPPO, known for its camera smartphones, had also launched their premium R17 Pro globally. Now, being very affluent in the Indian market, OPPO has taken no leisure to make this smartphone available in India as soon as possible.
So finally, they have teased the launch of this new premium camera smartphone – OPPO R17 Pro on December 4th in India. Let’s dig into the specs of the smartphone:
The OPPO R17 Pro
Design & Display
Launched back in August, the smartphone packs in a huge and immersive 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. Having a 19:9 aspect ratio it bears the trending “Dew-drop Notch” with 91.5% screen-to-body ratio.
The screen is secured with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection and houses the in-display fingerprint sensor that is said to unlock the smartphone in 0.41 seconds.
The smartphone bears a new fog gradient that uses 3D fog glass and a new condensing grading process. It helps to make the colours blend on the back of the smartphone and flow with the light and shadow.
For the performance, we have the new Snapdragon 710 chipset based on the new 10nm architecture. With 8 cores and with Andreno 616 GPU intensive performance is also expected from the new R17 Pro.
The chipset is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for smooth performance.
Coming to the flagship grade camera, it has a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/1.5 and f/2.4 variable aperture. This helps you capture great shots automatically depending upon the lighting situations. The secondary 20-megapixel depth sensor helps you to capture great portrait shots and zoom accordingly.

You may use it to capture 3D photos and can also connect it to your TV and even turn it to a home game console.
The 25MP front-facing AI camera with f/2.0 aperture can also capture 1080p videos at 30 fps. As expected, it also bears some great AI beauty modes and has 3D Portrait mode as well.
