Oppo R17 Neo launches in Japan: its first smartphone with in-display fingerprint sensor

Japan regularly receives cool tech gadgets first, however not this time – it simply got its first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor and it’s overdue to that specific celebration. The smartphone itself is pretty exciting – the Oppo R17 Neo.

It is a model of the Oppo K1 and R15X, which are partially based on the Oppo R17. which means a 6.4” AMOLED display with a teardrop notch and 1080p+ resolution, which homes the fingerprint sensor in query. The lower back is painted in two new gradient colors.

The computational energy of the smartphone took a bit of a hit. The Oppo R17 Neo has a Snapdragon 660 chipset (down from S670) with 4GB of RAM (down from 6-8GB). The storage remains at 128GB and the microSD card slot is still right here.

The camera modified too – the primary module on the back still has a 16MP sensor, however the depth sensor is now at 2MP (down from 5MP). not a massive loss, but notice the unique layout. The selfie camera remains a 25MP shooter.

This could be a mistake however the Neo is much lighter than the vanilla R17 – 156g vs. 182g. That’s even though it has a barely large battery, 3,600mAh. it can be a mistake on the seller’s page, in any other case it would mean that Oppo modified the smartphone’s construction (which appears not likely).

The Oppo R17 Neo is available on contract for JPY 3,218 a month or JPY 38,988 overall ($345/€305). That’s pretty a discount on the vanilla R17.
