Chinese smartphone vendor OPPO has launched two new models, the R17 and the R17 Pro, in Australia, with better camera technology, faster charging and better protection against water.

A statement from the company said the new features were:

  • Improved camera technology, enhanced with AI and a new Sony sensor, allowing for new flagship features like Ultra Night Mode and TOF 3D Photography in the R17 Pro.
  • World’s fastest charging technology - SuperVOOC Flash Charge which will charge the R17 Pro to 40% in just 10 minutes.
  • A 6.4-inch FHD+ Waterdrop inspired Screen and the first to come with Corning Gorilla Glass 6.

"OPPO is known for delivering camera technology that continues to push the boundaries of what is possible in a smartphone. The R17 and R17 Pro are full of cutting-edge features that showcase what OPPO is capable of," said Michael Tran, managing director at OPPO Australia.

“In particular, we are excited to bring the R17 Pro’s Ultra Night Mode and TOF 3D camera capabilities to Australia. Utilising the latest in smartphone camera technology, OPPO will help its customers seize the night and take advantage of new and exciting camera applications as they come to market. OPPO is excited to be at the forefront of this technology in Australia."

The R17 Series is the first to use Corning Gorilla Glass 6. Both models will be able to tolerate one-metre drops onto rough surfaces up to 15 times, which is double the strength of Gorilla Glass 5.

Additionally, both the R17 and R17 Pro can be unlocked instantly just by touching the screen. There is a hidden, ultra-photosensitive sensor built into the Gorilla display to ensure the clearest fingerprint images possible.

The OPPO R17 devices will be on sale from 12 November.
