Chinese giant, Oppo, is mainly known in Pakistan for its mid-range phones, Oppo F9 being a prime example of its affordable feature-packed devices, but the company is now eyeing to expand its footprint which is why it is bringing the flagship Oppo R17 Pro to Pakistan.
Our sources tell us that the company will be launching the device somewhere in next month which will be priced above Rs 100,000 in Pakistan.
The R17 Pro comes with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display that comes with a small waterdrop notch. This is also the first smartphone to use Corning’s Gorilla Glass 6 which is developed to better withstand consecutive drops.
Powering the device is a Snapdragon 710 processor that’s backed by 8GB of RAM. Onboard, it offers 128GB of storage which isn’t expandable.
R17 Pro would be the first R series phone to launch in Pakistan. The device will come with some special features like the VOOC fast charging and in-display fingerprint sensor
The OPPO R17 Pro features a vertically mounted triple-camera setup consisting of a 12MP+20MP and the third sensor with 3D depth sense. The main camera is assisted with optical image stabilization and there’s also an ultra night mode for long exposure shots in low light. Upfront it features a 25MP front camera for selfies.
The R17 Pro comes with two 1,850mAh batteries equivalent to a single 3,700mAh unit SuperVOOC fast charging, which charges the phone from 0-40 percent in just 10 minutes
Earlier, Oppo Find X being the company’s first high-end flagship was also released in Pakistan and despite being the most innovative flagship of its time, it failed to gain the recognition it deserved, maybe because of the price factor. Keeping this in mind, we don’t think the company should take this leap of pricing the phone so high.
