Oppo R17: Oppo has launched recently one of the best phablet Smartphones at an event in Milan. This phone is first launched in China in August this year at 3500 Yuan, which is approximately Rs.35,000. Oppo has led the smartphone industry when it comes to fast charging and the company is once again coming with the latest technology with its handset. However, the R-series smartphones-the Oppo R17, R17 Pro, R17 Neo and R15x doesn’t differ much.

Oppo R17 comes with a lightning speed charging. The camera is the main focus for the new Oppo phones. It features with a 16-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, f/1.8 aperture and 5-megapixel secondary rear camera and the front-facing camera is powered by the 25-megapixel camera with AI Portrait mode, f/2.0 aperture, and Sony IMX576. The boasting point is that R17 is the first device to use the Corning Gorilla Glass 6 technology. So, it survives on average,15 drops from 1 meter onto, rough surfaces and are up to 2x times better than the Gorilla Glass 5.


Oppo’s R17 will provide the customers, who depend on their smartphone for every interaction in their digital lives, increased protection against multiple drops. R17 comes with a wonderful optical clarity, touch sensitivity, scratch resistance, efficient wireless charging, enhanced durability and is set to enable new design trends. 


With the growing demand for mobiles with abundant RAM, Oppo is now focusing on increasing the amount of RAM in their upcoming handsets. R17 has made its mark in the mid-range segment. What’s going to be the key highlight of this OppoR17 smartphone is the whopping RAM of 6GB and a ROM of 128GB.


The Oppo was launched in China back in August. In India, it is going to be launched in December.


With VOOC flash charge, the OppoR17 gets charged fast and its large 3500mAh battery is another good specification.
