MANILA, November 7, 2018 – Leading smartphone brand OPPO today announced the launch of the R17 Pro in the Philippines. The R17 Pro shows the latest fusion of unique gradient design and technology innovations, demonstrating OPPO’s leadership in the smartphone industry and fulfilling OPPO’s commitment on empowering Filipinos with the best smartphones.
“Launching OPPO R17 Pro to the Philippine market is a great milestone for us. We’ve been very excited about introducing the model as the first in our legendary R Series. R17 Pro signifies OPPO’s transformation of fully expanding in the high-end smartphone market. With its theme ‘Seize the Night’, the R17 Pro aims to bring new technological power and possibilities to the aspirational and energetic community,” said Jane Wan, OPPO Philippines’ VP for Marketing. “With the launch of R Series adding to our product portfolio, we look forward to bringing OPPO’s technology for more consumers to enjoy.”
Leading industrial design with gradient colors
As the pathfinder of smartphone gradient design, OPPO always adheres to its design philosophy, and continuously creates stunning gradient colors for consumers, using its fashionable aesthetics and advanced craftsmanship. OPPO now makes gradient a "basic" for smartphone design.
The R17 Pro invented a brand-new "three-color and bi/quad-direction" gradient design. Through adding a light-condensing layer, the R17 Pro’s misted glass casing allows light to flow on the surface of the device, demonstrating leading color aesthetics and innovation.
Powered by innovative technologies for a seamless experience
The R17 Pro adopts Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 for the first time, with 6.4 inches of screen, 91.5% screen-to-body ratio, and in-screen fingerprint unlock. The Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 is able to withstand a drop from a one-meter height to a rough surface for an average 15 times, doubled that of the Gorilla Glass 5 performance.
The R17 Pro also carries SuperVOOC flash charging technology, allowing users to enjoy safe and efficient charging technology. It can charge up to 40 percent in only 10 minutes. The R17 Pro also support NFC wireless payment, making the transition to mobile payments easy and convenient.
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 Pro upgrades both hardware and software, making it a smartphone especially designed for night shooting. The R17 Pro 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 maximize the image quality to produce amazing night shots.
The R17 Pro is equipped with a variable smart aperture of f1.5/f2.4 which can automatically adjust to the lighting conditions making images sharper and clearer in both bright and low light situations. The R17 Pro has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), which can stabilize 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.
Furthermore, with regards to sensors, the R17 Pro uses a Sony IMX362 as its main camera, which has 12 MP with dual-pixel for quick and accurate focusing, and 1.4-micron pixels size and 1/2.55 sensor size, for brighter night shots and lower noise level. Overall, the whole hardware system of the OPPO R17 Pro is designed for night photography.
The R17 Pro also features TOF 3D camera, upgrading the camera from 2D to 3D and featuring users’ functions like 3D photos, somatosensory games, AR ruler, and more.
The OPPO R17 Pro will be available in the Philippines on November 24 for PHP 38,990.00. For more information on OPPO’s exciting products and services, like www.facebook.com/OPPOPH and follow @OPPOPhilippines on Twitter and Instagram.
