Meet the new Oppo R17, the Chinese company's latest flagship featuring a teardrop notch and an almost fullscreen experience. It's powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 octacore processor and 8GB RAM, and has 128GB of onboard storage. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo.
The phone comes with dual rear 16- and 5-megapixel shooters.
The Oppo R17 is the first Oppo phone with an underscreen fingerprint sensor, and it works similar to the one found on the Vivo Nex and Vivo X21.
The 6.4-inch display has a 2,340x1,080-pixel resolution.
The teardrop notch is where you'll find the 25-megapixel front shooter.
Oppo has really figured out how to make a good-looking phone.
The R17 finally ditches the Micro-USB port of the previous models, such as the R15, for a USB-C connector.
The phone's glass back has pretty cool-looking gradated metallic colors.
Oppo's also upped the ante for its gesture controls this time around, letting you choose different ways to interact with the phone. The one I tested lets you swipe up for home from the center, while swiping up from either side goes back a page.
Another angle on those hues. It's so pretty.
The 16- and 5-megapixel rear cameras are AI powered and take pretty good daytime shots, but Oppo says the magic is in its night shots.
There's barely any chin at the bottom of the phone.
The R17 is a really good looking phone. But will that be enough?
Above the tiny notch you can just barely make out the speaker slit.
