Oppo ranks in the top 5 of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers. They have a huge selection of products in every budget range. They have been known to make innovative and mind-blowing smartphones like the Oppo Find X. In Nepal, they are known mostly for their crazy selfie cameras and snazzy design. They make some of the best looking mid-range phones in Nepal.This time, Oppo has unveiled Oppo R17 in a listing on its website. The latest development comes days after the handset surfaced on TENAA and spotted in some leaks. This phone has the Snapdragon 670 processor, which is a new mid-range processor from Qualcomm. The official listing has confirmed that this newest Oppo phone has a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that sports a Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection on top and has an in-display fingerprint sensor! The resolution of the display is full HD+. Might we say, the screen looks fabulous with the teardrop-shaped notch and practically no bezels on the sides.
The smartphone also comes with AI supported dual rear cameras whose specs haven’t been fully revealed yet but OPPO has said the camera can read up to 800 scenes, thanks to the AI abilities of the camera and software. There is a 25 MP single front shooter residing inside the tiny notch similar to the one found on the Find X.
The phone features 8GB RAM which is more than plenty for multitasking in 2018. The 128 GB will be more than enough for even the most demanding user to store nearly all their apps. There is a 3500 mAh battery on the inside which supports VOOC, Oppo’s version of fast charging. This technology is similar to OnePlus‘ dash charging tech. Hence, it is the fastest fast charging except the fast charging on Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition.
