OPPO R17 & R17 Pro passes TENAA certification

Published

OPPO R17

The upcoming flagships from OPPO i.e. the OPPO R17 and the OPPO R17 Pro have earlier passed through China’s 3C. We also witnessed the previously leaked live images of the OPPO R17. Now, as per the new reports, both the smartphones have received certification from TENAA. Note that the device was reported to pass TENAA earlier too which was most probably a result of misinterpretation.

The images included in the listing reveal the design and main features of both the devices. The OPPO R17 image hints towards a full-view display at the front. The device comes with a small Notch (as seen in the previously leaked images) with the sole purpose of housing the front camera, similar to the Essential Phone and the upcoming OPPO F9 which too has appeared in quite a lot of leaks. The volume rockers are discretely placed on the left side while the power button is present on the opposite side.

The device has rounded corners and the back seems to be crafted out of glass. The back also houses a vertically stacked Dual Camera setup at the median along with a dual LED flash and an egg-shaped fingerprint scanner above the Oppo branding.

Now, coming to the OPPO R17 Pro, the images indicate a similar design with few changes here and there. The back looks exactly the same as seen above but lacks a fingerprint scanner which is absent on the front as well. In that case, we may assume for a while that it’ll come with the IR based Face Unlock which is not possible as the notch is too small to house anything in addition to the camera and Oppo won’t rely on software-based facial recognition system for a flagship. This fuels up another speculation of the presence of an in-display fingerprint scanner which was hinted in previous reports too.

Given that both the devices have appeared on TENAA, we can expect them to be unveiled soon by the company. There is no exact information about the specifications yet. Let’s wait for upcoming leaks and reports. Till then, Stay tuned.

After the recent launch of Infinix Smart 2 in India, the Infinix Mobility is now gearing up for the launch of another smartphone on August 23 in the country. The brand has already sent out the media invites for the same revealing few details about the launch.

The media invite by Infinix mentions the August 23 launch with “Save the Date” caption and #BeyondTheBest hashtag. Moreover, the Invite showcases the partial design outline of the upcoming smartphone soaring above the tallest building in a night view skyline which indicates that the device will sport a large display. The device seems to have rounded corners and modern 18:9 display with thin bezels on top and bottom.

Although the device seems to have no notch, there are rumours that this phone may turn out to be the new Infinix S3X which was launched in a few days back in certain regions.

Talking about the Infinix S3X, it is the company’s first phone to debut with a notched display. The fact that Infinix marketed the S3X with the #Anotchhigher hashtag and an image similar to the one seen in the media invite gives rise to the above speculation of it coming to India on 23rd of August.

However, there is a higher possibility of the device to be a completely different Infinix phone with minimal bezels and large display. As of now, we dont have any information regarding the same. We will keep you updated with future updates. Till then, Stay tuned.

From a report by Counterpoint, OnePlus 6 is the top leading smartphone in India in the premium smartphone market. The company has taken over Samsung for the first time in a full quarter in Q2 2018 in India with 40 percent market share. In the budget segment, Samsung is also facing a lot of stiff competition from other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO and Huawei Honor.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A8+ earlier this year to compete against the OnePlus 5T. Despite featuring an Infinity display and powered by Exynos 7882, it failed to stand it’s ground against the OnePlus flagship with a similar price tag of Rs 33,000.

Now a new report from IANS reveals that Samsung is planning to launch a new Galaxy A series smartphone in the country. It will be placed in the premium segment with a price tag of around Rs 30,000 or above. Xiaomi has recently teased it’s POCO brand in India whose first smartphone Pocophone F1 has been getting a lot of attention. Samsung wouldn’t want Xiaomi to make a strong dominance in this segment also.

From the report, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 6.3 inch Full HD+ AMOLED Infinity Display with sleek bezels on side. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with further expandable options via a microSD card. From these descriptions, we can assume that the phone that is going to be launched is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star which was launched earlier in China.

It will sport a dual camera setup of 24MP + 16MP in the rear with Samsung Live Focus feature while the front will offer a 24MP camera for selfies and video calling. The yet-to-be announced smartphone will be going  against the likes of OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Huawei Nova 3 and the Xiaomi Pocophone F1.
