Oppo R17 with in-screen fingerprint scanner specs revealed in China

OPPO R17

The OPPO R17 will come in Twilight Blue and Starry Purple color options with gradient finish.

The Oppo R17 features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ display with a resolution of 2280x1080.

"The Oppo R series continues to impress with this time the R17 leaking on the Oppo China store with a massive 6.4" display, and though the notch isn't unexpected the in-display fingerprint scanner certainly is. Oppo has started taking pre-orders for the handset, while sales will begin on August 18.

OPPO took the world by surprise with the launch of the sophisticated Find X smartphone flagship earlier this summer, even though durability tests say it is among the more fragile models launched up until now. The phone will be mid-range in terms of some specs which includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 SoC, but with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage it will certainly perform well. The Chinese company could also bring the Oppo R17 Pro as a superior version of the new model. The smartphone also comes with an artificial intelligence (AI) supported dual rear camera.

The Oppo R17 features a 2mm x 2mm in-screen fingerprint scanner. The handset has a dual rear camera setup that comprises a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor - paired with an LED flash. The front of the device is home to a 25MP selfie shooter with Sony IMX576 sensor and f/2.0 aperture. There are also various preset scenes to capture enhanced shots. There is also an in-display fingerprint sensor.

We also think the OnePlus 6T will feature the more powerful Snapdragon 845, rather than the more power-efficient Snapdragon 670 in the Oppo R17. For connectivity, the phone employs dual 4G LTE, Bluetooth 5, WiFi, NFC, GPS, GLONASS, dual SIM and USB Type-C port. It is backed by a 3,500mAh battery with Oppo's VOOC fast charging technology which delivers two hours of battery life with five minutes of charge.

Alongside the Oppo R17, Oppo is set to launch the R17 Pro.
