Release Date

The Chinese manufacturer of Oppo R17 has just released more information about the phone on their website. The smartphone is up for release by August 18, 2018. An Oppo R17 Pro will follow sometime later in the year. It seems that this month of August is a blessing for a plethora of newly released mobile phones.

Display / Configuration

The Oppo R17 sits at 6.4 inches which suggests that the device is a tall one. It features full HD+ 1080 x 2280 pixels in resolution which is not bad at all. The aspect ratio is 91.5. The fact that Gorilla Glass 6 is used as protection means it will be able to resist more scratch possibility from greater heights than those smartphones made with Gorilla Glass 5.
The memory configuration for Oppo R17 is 8GB RAM with 128GB ROM. A memory card could push that up to 256GB. The Snapdragon 670 is based on a 10nm process and houses eight Kryo 360 cores, Adreno 615 graphics, and a Snapdragon X12LTE modem.

Camera Power

One of the main things a smartphone buyer will ask for is camera power. For photos, you have a 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera setup with LED flash and a 25MP camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture. Need top selfies? Go get Oppo R17! You can expect the typical rabble of AI camera features from the device.
