Unlike cell phones like the , the OnePlus and the LG G7 ThinQ that have a very rectangular nodge, the Oppo R17 offers more curved eyebrow edges that allow it to better fit the screen and pass a little more unnoticed.

As for its beautiful body, the Oppo R17 has two versions with colors with gradient effect as the Honor 10 and even resembling the beautiful .
