The OPPO R17 Pro boasts Triple Rear Cameras, the first of its kind from the brand, as well as the whole BBK Electronics group. The camera setup is composed of dual-pixel 12MP sensor with variable f/1.5 to f/2.4 aperture, 20-megapixel lens with an f-stop of f/2.6, and 3D TOF depth camera.

This is a quite different approach than existing 3-camera set-up from other brands, which are RGB+BW+Depth and RGB+Wide+Telephoto. So, what's TOF? TOF or time-of-flight, is a camera imaging system that resolves the distance of the sensor to an object based on the speed of light it captures after being reflected, thus giving the R17 Pro more information about the subject. Meanwhile, the front is equipped with 25MP f/2.0 module with AI Beauty Recognition for taking selfies.

Moving on, it flashes a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch design similar to that of the OPPO F9, and has a gradient-colored glass back. It has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, and delivers a 91.5% screen-to-body ratio. Moreover, it has a Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection, which, according to OPPO is the first smartphone to have it.
