OPPO’s new R17 phone has a teensy-tiny, itsy-bitsy little notch

Today, the telephony sector is more focused on developing an established formula than on unbridled creativity. And, as OPPO showed with its Find X and its mechanical indentation Chinese society is a master of this kind of settings. That's why I was stung when I heard about his new handset, the R17.

This is a mid-range Android phone that will be released on August 30 in China. The most eye-catching element of the R17 is its unique notch. Take a look:

Hey there lil 'notch buddy

With the combination of the largest screen possible on a phone and love the camera before (read: selfies), l & # 39; notch has become tolerated, if not liked, element of new phones.

Normally – as the iPhone X or Pixel 3 XL – this is a large rectangle. But, on the R17, it's more of a small bump or a smooth mound. To be honest, it's a very good idea and it's certainly not as present as the larger, squarer notches.

Still, I wonder if a small change like this will really draw people into OPPO's arms, because you will not save a lot of phone screen here. I know some people are extremely irritated by the notch, so this could appease this injury.

There are a few other things to note with the R17. For example, it is the first time that OPPO uses Gorilla Glass 6 for the screen, which should help people always clumsy. On this subject, it also has a screen-body ratio of 91.5% and a built-in fingerprint reader. As for the processors, it uses the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 chip.

OPPO also focused on night shooting and quality cameras in the R17. This includes a dual camera (a 16 MP and the other 5 MP) at the back of the model and a 25 MP front for selfie enthusiasts. These are all assisted by AI, which aims to improve images, especially those taken at night.

The company is also focused on the aesthetics of the R17, and the press release addresses the issue of reintroduction of strong colors in the smartphone industry:

Wow, Purple and Blue

While OPPO is talking about creating 'amazing gradient colors for consumers', the reality of purple and blue seems emblematic of the smartphone industry. Although the R17 is undoubtedly very pleasant, pumping out resources in the color of the phone seems to be an innovation. As many as people use cases for their devices.

With a price range of around $ 500 (or 3,499 Chinese yuan), the 8GM RAM and 128GB ROM R17 are very competitive. This highly populated market has companies like Motorola, Xiaomi and OnePlus that produce fantastic models, standing out from the crowd.

In this case, for whom is the R17?

This could be suitable for a variety of people. Those who like mid-range phones who try to do something different, people who love selfies, people who love design with a different style, lovers of Blade Runner 2049, 19459005 could all find something to like here.

For everyone, while OPPO can more than compete in this space, I would expect there to be more information on the daily performance of the R17 before it. buy.

So, stay tuned for other updates – something you can do in as a result of Plugged on Twitter .
