In March, OPPO had launched the R15 and R15 Pro smartphones with notched display design. The OPPO R17 that was unveiled earlier today is the successor of the R15 phone. The R17 is now listed on OPPO”s official online store. Its reservations have started from today in China and its pre-orders are slated to begin on Aug. 18. However, the OPPO R17 Pro is not yet listed on the official site. A screenshot of the R17 Pro is doing rounds on Weibo. There is a possibility that the screenshot of the R17 Pro may have surfaced through one of the official platforms of company. What’s interesting about the R17 Pro screenshot is that it is fitted with triple rear cameras.
OPPO had recently launched the Find X flagship phone. Before its launch, the handset was rumored to arrive with triple camera system. However, it is equipped with a dual camera setup. The screenshot suggests that the R17 Pro could be the first smartphone from the company to feature triple rear cameras. The snapshot states that Super Night Mode and Smart Aperture are some of the features of the R17 Pro.
The three cameras present on the rear side of the OPPO R17 Pro are arranged vertically followed by an LED flash. As of this writing, there is no information on the specs of the R17 Pro. However, it is likely that the smartphone could be coming with identical specs as the R17 phone.
The Snapdragon 670 that powers the R17 phone could be present under the hood of the R17 Pro. The other rumored features of the R17 Pro include 6.4-inch water drop display, 8 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage, 25-megapixel front-facing camera, 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual camera, ColorOS 5.2 flavored Android 8.1 Oreo and 3,500mAh battery.
The R17 Pro could be the world’s first phone to be equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. There are some contradictory rumors about the R17 Pro that claim that it may feature Snapdragon 845 and 10 GB of RAM which sounds too good to be true.
It is unclear when OPPO will be announcing the R17 Pro. The company may soon hold an unveil event for R17. Probably, it may use the same platform to announce the R17 Pro.
