After Find X, OPPO also has more & # 39; black technology & # 39; added to the R-series and the TOF on the back, SuperVOOC superflash and iris appeared on the R17 Pro.
For OPPO, the first half of 2018 is exactly the same.
The OPPO in the first half of the year is still the most famous OPPO in our impression. The R-series (R15 and R15 Dream Edition) is the most important fashion item: the celebrity spokesperson needs two hands to count, and the A series remains in the 1000-2000 yuan. The low-end market harvests users with products that are not as controversial but equally stylish.
In the second half of the year, the OPPO style suddenly changed with the release of Find X. In this product that OPPO defined as "Future Flagship", OPPO has come up with the most ground-breaking design in the current smartphone, the first in mass produced 3D structured optical module in the Android camp, and can be in 35 minutes. SuperVOOC super flash with a mobile phone. Perhaps more specifically, OPPO has not invited domestic celebrity spokespersons to Find X, but marketing efforts are focused on the product instead.
OPPO's idea of "returning to the product" also continued in the R series. At the recently concluded R17 new product launch conference, there was no obvious and the product became the absolute protagonist.
"Water Drop Screen", further narrowed "Chin"
Because OPPO chose to release almost all R17 product information fairly quickly before the press conference, there is not much secret in the R17 product itself, but there are still many places on the R17 that deserve to be worked out.
The screen may be the most intuitive change in appearance of the R17.
The previous generation of the R15 used the "super-view full screen", which this year is the most common "small pony" in the household machine. The screen of the R17 is still formed, but the screen is much smaller. From "Little Liu Hai" to a continuous curve as a drop shape, OPPO called the screen of R17 "Drop Screen" (the upper curve is similar to the moment when the water drop threatens to fall).
As far as the design of this "drop screen" is concerned, it is a subjective aesthetic problem. From the feedback from internet users after OPPO announced R17, at least compared to the conventional "pony", more netizens will be more inclined to "water droplets" with smaller area and more consistent curves.

Notes R1 and OPPO R17
In addition to changes in the cutting area, the screen size of the R17 is also adjusted, from 6.25 inches in the R15 to 6.4 inches, with a resolution of 2340X1080, and the screen material is still Samsung AMOLED.
As far as the display effect is concerned, R17 continues the cold and glamorous style of OPPO mobile phones. Although I personally hope that OPPO can offer a display mode that is closer to the standard sRGB in the system, the screen view of R17 is indeed more eye-catching. It is also the alignment idea of most medium and advanced Android machines.
As far as the quality of the screen is concerned, the R17 does not have to worry: the Samsung HDOLED with FHD + resolution has an opening in the fineness of the high-quality, flexible 2K AMOLED, but is also sufficient to offer a display quality which is superior to most LCD and other brands OLED screens. There is no problem with the permeability, brightness and viewing angle.
It is worth noting that the glass cover on the front of the R17 (not on the back) also started the sixth generation Gorilla Glass that Corning has just released. Compared to the fifth generation of the previous high-end mobile phones (including R15), the Gorilla glass of the sixth generation has a significant improvement in anti-drop power. "Corning is the official statement from a height of 1 meter to a hard surface". The time is still intact. "Of course the sturdy glass can not guarantee that every drop in daily use is not broken, but with the gorilla of the sixth generation, the chance that the screen breaks at least much lower than before.
Moreover, R17 has also been significantly improved in the control of the screen frame.
Compared to the R15, the width of the lower frame of the R17 screen (commonly known as "chin") is significantly reduced and is close to Find X in the COP package (probably only 1 mm wide). It should be the current mobile phone in COF package. The narrowest is quite remarkable.
Thanks to the slightly larger screen and the narrower "chin", according to the "screen display area / front glass cover", the most common computer screen ratio, the screen ratio of R17 reached 91.5%, Second only for OPPO Find X and vivo NEX, two mobile phones designed with a lift camera.
Probably the fastest screen fingerprint available today
Since the beginning of this year, the first fingerprint on the screen of vivo, after half a year of development, screen fingerprints become the standard for ever more advanced mobile phones, and the recognition speed and success rate of screen fingerprints have also made significant progress. However, compared with traditional capacitive fingerprints that can be unlocked with one touch, there is still a certain gap in the experience of screen fingerprints.
When is the experience of screen fingerprints similar to traditional capacitive fingerprints? OPPO R17 is currently the best answer.
In case the screen is illuminated, the fingerprint on the screen of OPPO R17 is very close to the capacitive fingerprint in the recognition speed and can be unlocked with just one touch. This is the first in all fingerprint phones on the screen that I have used. Stable to do this.
Because the fingerprint of the screen is on the screen (nonsense …), the fingerprint of the screen does not have a clear identification area that can be positioned as a capacitive fingerprint. Therefore, it is inevitable that the unlocking can take place due to a deviation from the position of the finger pressing on the fingerprint. The solution is to place the fingerprint and fingerprint identification area as close as possible to the fingerprint and then finger the identification position of the fingerprint when unlocking, thereby effectively improving the success rate of fingerprint recognition including R17. .
If the screen is completely off or the Always-to-Display interface, the Finger Recognition rate on the R17's screen will decrease (but generally still faster than with other fingerprint phones on the screen), you need to put your finger on the screen. leave screen. I do not know if the OPPO can be optimized with software to further improve the fingerprint speed of the R17 screen.
OPPO can run the R17's fingerprint impression so quickly, in addition to algorithmic polishing, the main reason would be the adoption of a new generation of hardware. According to the official OPPO statement, the light-sensitive screen fingerprint of R17 uses the screen-down lens scheme: the CMOS sensor at the bottom of the screen is 4 square millimeters and many adjustments have been made to the hardware, such as the lens.
In terms of feature adjustment, there is no problem with the R17 fingerprint and the payment of both WeChat and Alipay apps has been adjusted.
Gradient upgrade: neon violet, streamer blue, fog gradient
The design of the R17 continues with the metal center frame + front and rear double-sided glass design used on the R15. The middle frame has a glossy surface and the back is still 2.5D glass (R17 Pro is 3D hot bending glass).
In the middle frame R17 has also made some adjustments.
Including R15, previous generations of OPPO products have used a "hanging screen" design, there is a circle with plastic edges around the screen. The entire screen module is slightly higher than the middle frame to achieve a "suspended" visual effect. This treatment helps to visually reduce the thickness, but the opponent has certain side effects.
On the R17, the OPPO removes the plastic edge around the screen and the glass shade is attached directly to the metal frame that is bevelled twice. This treatment can make the black and white edges of the screen smaller and more effective. Improved grip.
By the way, if you feel that your hand feels bad after buying R17, you can consider tearing the film that is attached at the factory. R17 The film that is attached to the factory is specially adapted for the fingerprint and the touch is good, but it is finally a layer of plastic foil, which has a little influence on the handle.
In the back cover the R17 still uses the streamer process of the first R15, all versions are gradient.
However, when processing the gradient, R17 changed from the simple two-color gradient to R15 in the mixed gradient of multiple colors, and added the vertical texture, which can see different effects under different light, and the visual effect is more abundant. what of.
Besides the gradient of streamer blue, neon and purple, R17 also offers a very special mist gradient. This version is based on the streamer and color process and the surface is etched to create a matte texture.
骁 670.8 GB + 128 GB
At the SoC, R17 eventually replaced the three-generation Snapdragon 660 on R11, R11s and R15 and replaced it with the new Snapdragon 670 (R17 Pro is Snapdragon 710).
Although the Snapdragon 670 is very close to the Snapdragon 660, the Leeuwebek 670 has a very different design than the Leeuwebek 660. It is more like the "Youth Edition" of the Snapdragon 710.
In the CPU section, the Snapdragon 670 uses the design "2 large + 6 small" The two Kryo 360 "big core" have a maximum frequency of 2.0 GHz and the six "small cores" with low power have a maximum frequency of 1.7 GHz. The GPU is brand new. Adreno 615, ISP for Spectra 250, DSP for Hexagon 685, X12 LTE baseband, TSMC 10 nanometer process.
Compared to the Snapdragon 660, the CPU-single-core performance of the Snapdragon 670 has been slightly improved, the multi-core is essentially flat and the GPU and AI performance is significantly improved, while the power consumption and the heat are slightly reduced.
With a relatively slim product line and a stable iteration cycle, OPPO & R's series has always had a good reputation for performance optimization, as well as for R17.
The fluency of the system is not so much to say, app startup, multitasking switching, sliding frame rate and hand rate are no problem, compared to Find X with Snapdragon 845 is not inferior.
As far as game optimization is concerned, R17 also performs exclusive optimization for more than 10 popular games, including the familiar "Glory of the King", "Stimulus Battlefield", "All Army Attack", "Wild Action", "QQ Speed", including "Stimulus Battlefield" can be fully framed in the Super High Frame mode, and the volcanic version of "Glory of the King" is also adjusted.
In addition, the battery of the R17 has reached a large 3500 mAh (standard), and the Snapdragon 670 with its own energy consumption ratio is very good. The lifetime of the R17 is pretty good, there is not much problem with intensive use during one day.
For recharging, the R17 is equipped with a normal 20W (5V 4A) VOOC flash (R17 Pro is SuperVOOC superflash), which can be charged up to more than 50% in half an hour.
Ah, after Find X, R17 has finally used USB Type-C and R17 & # 39; s Type-C also supports USB 3.1, which can output video via DP.
1600 behind + 25 million front, AI algorithm blessing
On the photo, the R17 solution is more conventional, with a front end of 25 million pixels. The AI beauty used in the previous products must be preserved and the functions of face-lifting and make-up are immediately available.
At the rear, the main camera of the R17 is still the Sony IMX519, f / 1.7 aperture, which supports AI scene recognition and can identify 21 independent scenes and 800 scene combinations.
Although the hardware does not differ much from the R15, the R17 algorithm should be improved, especially in the night scene.
The high-quality, small Sony IMX519 is not very suitable for night shots with high light requirements, but OPPO uses a more aggressive synthesis algorithm on the R17 (in low light it will ask to keep the phone stable for better night shots)), the R17 still has a to achieve excellent night-time recording quality with the IMX519.
The following pictures are made in automatic mode with OPPO R17 without any post.
ColorOS 5.2 and AR live navigation
On the system side, the OPPO R17 is equipped with the Android 8.1-based ColorOS 5.2 operating system.
The new version of ColorOS has been slightly modified in the user interface, and has added new features, such as a smart sidebar, free collection and play space. More interesting is the real-life navigation function based on ARUnit based on OPPO and Gaode.
After opening this function, the user can see the real environment around the mobile phone and he can also see OPPO's intelligent assistant Xiaoou intelligent route guidance. When turning, deviating and arriving at the destination, Xiaoou will give feedback and correct by means of speech, animation and so on.
It is worth noting that this feature is not GPS based, but uses SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) technology, which can be combined with geographic coordinates in complex scenes such as intersections. Make a judgment.
"Black Technology" bless R17 Pro
In addition to R17, OPPO has also released a less "R-series" R17 Pro today.
Based on R17, R17 Pro has added a large number of functions called "black technology", the most special being the TOF module at the rear, which can realize 3D models with high precision within 5 meters. The above-mentioned application scenarios include 3D modeling, AR-probing and somatosensory applications.
The rear camera of the R17 Pro has a considerable upgrade compared to the R17. The main camera uses a Sony IMX362 with a larger single-pixel size and full-pixel focus (OPPO says that the reason for not using the IMX363, IMX380 is that the OPPO has a long development cycle.) The IMX362 is better optimized. The lens uses a variable aperture such as the Galaxy S9 and Note 9. Under the low light, the large aperture of f / 1.5 is used to increase the amount of light. When the light is good, the aperture of f / 2.4 better, analytical power.
In addition, the SoC of the R17 Pro has been upgraded to a slightly better Snapdragon 710, the rear has a better 3D hot-bend glass and is equipped with a SuperWOOC super-flash of 50W.
A brand new R-series
In the product line of OPPO, the positioning of the R-series is "fashionable mode". With its slim design, excellent marketing, powerful channels and super explosions such as the R9, the R-series has maintained excellent market performance in recent years.
With the introduction of Find X, however, OPPO's product ideas in the R-series have also been adapted: in addition to retaining traditional fashion, OPPO has added more technological elements to the R-series.
Of the two products that have been released this time, R17 can be seen as a continuation of the traditional R-series, while the R17 Pro takes on a more "exploration mission". It is a pity, however, that the R17 Pro is mentioned much later than the R17, and we will have to wait until mid-October to see it.
In the interview after the press conference we also consulted the OPPO product manager for this question. There are two main reasons for this: first, for the rhythm of the product, similar to the R version before the R version, the R17 Pro-time-to-market Originally it had to be spread with R17. The second is that the rear-mounted TOF module that took R17 Pro into the pipeline was difficult to calibrate and that it was difficult to produce in bulk.
Finally, in terms of sales price, the OPPO R17 version of 6 GB + 128 GB is 3199 yuan, 8 GB + 128 GB is 3499 yuan, the fog gradient is 3599 yuan, the release date is September 7 and the R17 Pro 8GB + 128GB version is priced. It is 4,299 yuan and is expected to be available mid-October.Go back to Sohu and see more
