The phone features a 6.4 inch Screen Size with 91.5 percent Screen Ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 6. In lab tests, Gorilla Glass 6 survived 15 drops from one metre onto rough surfaces whereas competitive glass compositions, such as soda lime and aluminosilicate, did not survive the first drop.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset clubbed with 8GB RAM.
The R17 Pro comes packed with a 3700mAh bi-cell design for up to 50-watt charging power. Oppo says that the SuperVOOC Flash Charge is capable of reaching 40 percent charge in just 10 minutes, and with five – core smart protection providing all-round monitoring, it’s built to run safely at top-speed.
You can unlock your R17 Pro instantly just by touching the screen on the hidden fingerprint sensor. An ultra-photosensitive sensor under the display ensures crystal-clear fingerprint images, Oppo said. The R17 Pro’s notch is inspired by a droplet of water captured at the moment before it fall, it added.
