In addition to increasing the charging speed by four times, VOOC also boasts an intelligent five-layer protection system from the adaptor to the port and interior of the phone.
Camera perfect for quality photography
When it comes to product technology, night shooting is one of the most common challenges in the smartphone industry. The R17 has been enabled with upgrades for both hardware and software, making it a smartphone designed for night shooting. The R17 features a software-level AI Ultra-clear Engine that allows users to take high-quality night photos. The AI Ultra-clear Engine is OPPO’s unique image-enhancing technology that is able to break all hardware limitations to maximise the image quality to produce amazing night shots.
The R17 comes with a 25MP front camera and a Sony IMX576 sensor with f/2.0 aperture equipped with real-time HDR support. The R17 provides up to 8 million different beautification schemes to intelligently match different users across the globe. Additionally, the customised beauty mode can now identify up to four people in the frame and enables users to adjust the facial features and preview the effects in real time. The rear cameras of the R17 can intelligently recognise 23 photography modes and as many as 864 scenario combinations to ensure every shot taken is the best shot possible. The phone is also equipped with a variable smart aperture of f1.7/f2.4 which can automatically adjust to the lighting conditions making images sharper and clearer in both bright and low light situations and has an OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation), which can stabilise images and guarantee a longer exposure time to brighten night-time photography, especially with a 7P lens module. The combination of these two features further heightens precision in night-time photography.
