The upcoming OPPO R17 has already made its way to TENAA telecom authority in China. The TENAA listing of the smartphone only contains its images and some of its specs. Today, a leakster from China has shared the specs sheet to reveal all the juicy information on the OPPO R17 smartphone.
The below image reveals that the OPPO R17 will be arriving with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that will offer an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 91.5 percent. The screen will be protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass. However, the specs sheet does not clearly mention whether it will be featuring the sixth generation Gorilla Glass. The display of the phone will be embedded with an optical in-display fingerprint scanner. The handset will be available in colors like Stream Blue, Neon Violet and color gradient Fog.
Rumors have it that the OPPO R17 will be fueled by the new Snapdragon 710 SoC. However, the leaked specs sheet reveals that the smartphone is equipped with Snapdragon 670. This sounds a bit strange as Qualcomm was expected to launch Snapdragon 670 as the successor for Snapdragon 660 SoC in this year. However, instead of launching Snapdragon 670, the U.S. based chip maker had unveiled Snapdragon 710 as the successor for Snapdragon 660 that powered high-end smartphones in 2017. Now that the leaked specs sheet claims that the OPPO R17 is powered by Snapdragon 670, there seems to be two possibilities. Either Qualcomm will debut a new Snapdragon 670 as a lower edition of the SD710 or the above specs sheet could be an old document.
The SoC of the OPPO R17 will be coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The handset will arrive preloaded with ColorOS 5.2 based Android 8.1 Oreo. A 3,500mAh battery will be powering the OPPO R17 that will carry support for VOOC flash charging through USB-C.
The OPPO R17 is expected to arrive with Sony IMX576 25-megpixel front-facing camera with support for AI and 3D Portrait. The rear panel of the phone will be equipped with 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual camera with Super Night Mode.
The TENAA listing of the OPPO R17 is yet to be populated with full specs. The smartphone is expected to debut by the end of this month or early September. Hence, there is possibility that its TENAA listing will be soon updated with all the details that will make it possible to confirm whether the above specs sheet is real or fake.
