Phone Set Up
Hidden Fingerprint Unlock
The OPPO RX17 Neo uses a photo-sensitive sensor beneath the display to unlock the device. This super-sensitive fingerprint reader is able to quickly recognise the print and unlock the phone. As the sensor is under the display, it remains clean and is able to get a clear image of the fingerprint each time.
This makes the phone very secure so you can store your files and other details on the device with confidence.
A lot of phon phone manufacturers develop their own user interface to work with the Android OS. This helps make their devices stand out from other Android phones on the market. OPPO has included the ColourOS 5.2 on the RX17 Neo to work in conjunction with the Android 8.1 operating system.
With the ColorOS interface, you can use the standard back, recent, and home buttons or use gestures instead, including entering split screen mode by dragging three fingers across the display.
A few of the ColourOS features that you will find on the OPPO RX17 Neo include:
Smart Assistant – Swipe to the left for a screen that gives you information on it such as the weather, shortcuts, upcoming events, and your step count
Screen Clock – This provides updates on calls, unread messages, reminders, and time, even when the screen is off
Smart Bar - You can toggle through apps and phone functions from within an app by using this bar
Music on Display - You can enjoy video, music and other audio without having to keep the display on

Dual AI Camera
The Dual AI rear camera has a 16-megapixel main lens with Phase Detection Autofocus and an f/1.7 aperture. The second lens is a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 aperture.
The AI-enhanced selfie camera on the OPPO RX17 Neo has a superb 25-megapixel resolution and can instantly recognise 296 facial features. This analysis can happen in a nanosecond and the AI technology uses over eight million reference points to bring you into perfect focus.
With 3D AI Beauty Mode you can smooth out wrinkles and thin your face, with a preview in real time. Face Light 3D uses lighting techniques that create artistic portraits.

Other features include stickers and a 3D Omoji function. You can turn yourself into one of ten different characters, including a dragon, hippo, and duck which can move and make facial expressions just as you do.
AI Scene Recognition
The AI-enhanced dual camera lets you create depth-of-field effects (blurred backgrounds) and gives you many editing options and suggestions for the perfect shot.
AI Scene Recognition adjusts everything to the best settings and recognises 16 different scene types. There is a decent amount of storage with the 128GB internal memory.
Long Lasting Battery
The OPPO RX17 has a high-capacity 3,600mAh battery, which should get you through a normal day of phone use without an issue. The battery is coupled with AI power management features to make sure that the power lasts and unnecessary apps or background tasks are switched off when the power starts to get low.
