Oppo has just launched two new phones, in Europe, having the now famous water drop (or say teardrop) notch. The phones are called RX17 Pro and RX17 Neo. They are modified versions of the phones previously launched in China. Where the R17 has been branded as a premium model RX17 Pro, the R17 Neo gets the title of RX17 Neo, which is a mid-range model.

Coming to the optics, it has a triple rear camera setup. There’s a 12MP camera (f/1.5-2.4), 20MP (f/1.6) camera, and the third one is a ‘Time of Flight’ (TOF) 3D sensing camera, for taking more depth, allowing the users to add more effects. When it comes to the front camera, the phone has a 25MP lens (f/2.0) for taking amazing, great selfies.
