Oppo R17 Pro is introduced with two batteries, three rear cameras and one waterdrop notch
Earlier this month, Oppo unveiled the R17, the first handset with a display protected by Gorilla Glass 6. Today, the R17's big brother was introduced. The Oppo R17 Pro features a 6.4-inch AMOLED panel (the screen-to-body-ratio is 91.5%), and it is powered by the Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform carrying an octa-core CPU running at 2.2 GHz. The Adreno 616 GPU is included, and the device is equipped with 8GB of RAM/128GB of native storage.

Like the R17, the Pro variant has the waterdrop notch. And on back you'll find a triple camera setup including a 20MP lens with OIS, a 12MP lens and a 3D Stereo Camera lens. The latter is used for AR effects. Besides the trio of cameras, the color theme will also remind you of the Huawei P20 Pro (see the image at the top of this article). And yes, there is an in-display fingerprint sensor. Place your finger on the specific spot designated on the display, and the handset unlocks.

The Oppo R17 Pro has a pair of 1850mAh cells inside. That works out to 3700mAh of battery power. Using the two separate cells allows users to replenish 40% of battery power in only 10 minutes thanks to Super VOOC fast-charging technology.

It's very tempting considering all awesome features, the only issue is the software it's usually a too heavy skin on Android.

The OnePlus 6T will probably have most of these features.

So maybe this is the 6T foundation, not the R17? The battery capacity is slightly bigger, the charging even faster, 3 cameras (although AR camera is pretty specific, i can't see everyone using that one), in-display fingerprint scanner... Fingers crossed

Phonearena, you could have as well mentioned that it's primary sensor which is a 12Mpx 1/2.55" is a dual aperture one, same as S9/S9+ and Note 9, F/1.5 to F/2.6. It also comes with SuperVooc Charging that puts out 50 watts.

Who is Oppo says Apple...oh just another Android manufacturer. We’ve never heard of them before. Are they going to make it to 2023. We’ll be here as I can’t speak for them...

Oppo has missed the opportunity to be the first to implement the triple camera Dual aperture + Telephoto + Wide angle combinaison

Dual battery cells is an interesting way to offer more battery life and faster charging. Hope the OP6T takes after the R17 pro.
