Oppo R17 Pro gears up for December launch in India, aims to impress with Super Fast Charging.
The Oppo R17 Pro will launch in Indian markets officially in December, and sales of the new flagship offering will commence post a launch event scheduled to be held in Mumbai on December 04, 2018.
The new Oppo R17 Pro supports super-fast charging using Oppo’s proprietary Super VOOC Flash Charge technology, which was seen earlier in the Oppo Find X (which did not make its way to India officially). This technology supports at up to 10V/5A (at 50 Watts). To give an idea of how fast this is, the battery can go from zero to a 40% charge in a matter of 10 minutes, according to company claims and industry benchmarking on previous models sporting this feature.
The price for the Indian variant of the Oppo R17 Pro has not been revealed yet, however we will be happy to see a price tag lower than Rs 59,494 – at which Oppo had priced the last phone using this technology (Super VOOC on the Oppo Find X).
Oppo R17 Pro – Core Features & Key Specs
The variant that is scheduled for an India launch, is a Dual Nano-SIM version of the Oppo R17 Pro running on the ColorOS 5.2 shell on top of factory-installed Android 8.1 Oreo, and features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) screen with a default aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone draws power and performance from an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC processor, boosted with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.
The Oppo R17 Pro also surprises with a triple rear camera setup, featuring:
- A 12-megapixel sensor (f/1.5-2/4 aperture)
- A 20-megapixel sensor with f/2.6 aperture
- A third sensor (a TOF 3D stereo camera)
