After the official announcement of Oppo R17, the first hands-on video of the smartphone was uploaded on YouTube and shared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
Oppo R17 emerges in a Hands-on Video
Today someone in China has uploaded a thirty seconds short hands-on video on youtube with the Oppo R17, that shows off a live unit for the first time. Being able to watch the phone live, is much better than the renders. It gives us a clear insight into what the device actually looks like.
At this point, we are already familiar with the Oppo R17’s design since it was already announced by the company with its official press renders. As expected, the video shows off the phone with a small circular shaped notch, which Oppo calls “waterdrop”. It does make sense as it really looks like a waterdrop. It does have extremely thin bezels on the sides and a small bottom chin.
The back surface is made of shiny glass, with vertically arranged dual cameras and a LED flash below it. It is worth mentioning that the smartphone doesn’t have any physical fingerprint sensor and it will be equipped with a light screen fingerprint sensor that Oppo claims can unlock the smartphone in a second.
