With the growing demand for mobiles with abundant RAM, smartphone companies are now focusing on increasing the amount of RAM in their upcoming handsets. Especially, the Chinese brands are almost like in a race and competing with other companies to stand out from the crowd. And one such company is Oppo, which is in plans to launch a new device with a surprising 10GB RAM, thus raising the bar further. Recently, it has also released two new phones which are the Oppo A3s and the futuristic Find X featuring a motorized pop-up selfie camera.
Hence, the upcoming device that Oppo is planning to launch in the R Series is the Oppo R17. Let us look at some of the details available relative to this handset.
Called as a successor to the Oppo R15, the Oppo R17 in UAE will probably be the first handset to come with a huge memory. When released, it may sit in the mid-range segment. But we can expect many innovative features even if the Oppo R17 price in Dubai is reasonable compared to premium devices. Firstly, the company might launch it with the most recent version of Android software, which is the 8.1 Oreo. So might be improvements and fixes in the operating system, which will make the device perform efficiently. Under the hood, there might be the Helio P60 processor incorporated, which is also used in other phones like Oppo F7, Oppo A3, and Xiaomi is also planning to offer the same chipset in some of its next devices. On the other hand, speculations are also hinting at the device to feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC chipset.
What’s going to be the key highlight of this upcoming Oppo smartphone is the whopping RAM of 10GB. Although there is no confirmation yet about this feature but seems like it is almost certain. If this happens to be true, it will even surpass the futuristic Oppo Find X in this aspect as that came with 8GB RAM. Apart from this, there are no reports mentioning the possibility of variants with different RAM options.
