The R17 Pro was first launched in China around July and later made its entry into Europe on October 24 as OPPO RX17 Pro. Apparently, the device will bear the R17 Pro moniker when its sojourn in India commences.
As a reminder, the OPPO R17 Pro houses a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with a waterdrop notch, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution. The large-sized display of the phone offers a screen-to-body ratio of a whopping 91.5%. Its display is shielded by Corning Gorilla Glass 6. OPPO has embedded a fingerprint reader under the screen of the smartphone. The R17 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 710 chipset and 8 GB of RAM. The handset features an internal storage of 128 GB. The second SIM slot can be used for adding a microSD card. It is worthy to note that the device will be the first Super VOOC smartphone in India. The phone is also the first Oppo smartphone with three cameras on the back, with the third actually being 3D TOF depth sensor that can’t be used on its own. As for the price, the phone was initially introduced for CNY4,299 or $625 in China and in Europe, it is available for €599. The price may likely be slightly lower in India.
