The Chinese smartphone giant Oppo is back with a swing in Indian tech industry in December 2018. Its latest 6.40-inch touchscreen smartphone, Oppo R17 pro is out in the domestic market for purchase. The new handset comes with a decent 3700 mAh battery, Snapdragon 710 processor and Android 8.1 operating system. Oppo seems to have deviated from its signature design with R17 Pro, going for a more minimal and large-screened look.
Oppo R17 Pro Price in India
Starting price for the new Oppo smartphone in India will be Rs.40,800 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage capacity variant. Market price can increase to 43,900 for upgraded variant of 8GB RAM and 128 GB variant.
Oppo R17 Pro Features
Design and Display: The new Oppo handset has AMOLED capacitive multi-touch display, 6.40-inch (101 cm square) massive screen size protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Official dimensions of the device are 157.6 x 74.6 x 7.9 mm. It has been talk of the town for its off-mainstream colour variants: Emerald green and radiant Mist (shiny dark blue). The smartphone weighs about 183 grams and has a Hybrid Dual Nano sim slot on the side.
Camera: Oppo R17 pro has a triple lens main camera, with 12MP primary back camera and 20MP secondary TOF 3D stereo camera. The smartphone sports a 25 MP front camera with HDR feature. It further has a video recording quality of 1080p.
Battery: Oppo R17 pro has stepped up its game with a Non-removable Li-Po 3700 mAh battery coupled with a much needed fast charging feature. According to recent tests, the phone charges 40% in 10 minutes owning to the famous SuperVOOC Flash Charge. If you’re someone who rune on a tight schedule, this smartphone is one of best bets you can make in India.
Other features: Besides the fantastic LED triple camera, Oppo hasn’t left any coin unturned with its new smartphone’s sound quality. It includes active noise cancellation and a dedicated mike. However, Oppo R17 does not sport a 3.5mm headphone jack, effectively following in the steps of Apple. Sensors on board include fingerprint, proximity sensor, magnetometer (compass), Gyroscope and ambient light sensor.
Oppo R17 Pro is receiving great customer reviews worldwide and India stands no exception to that record. The SuperVOOC Flash Charging feature is expected to draw in huge sales despite the expensive price tag. Overall, the new Oppo handset has a stunning design and is large enough to be called a phablet. Oppo’s signature clear, HDR camera quality has only been improved with R17 Pro. However, the absence of headphone jack and design quite similar to that of Apple’s has affected the smartphone’s originality. Nevertheless, it can be the next big thing in Indian smartphone market this year end.
