Let’s start with the phone’s highlight features, the triple rear cameras. Its the second phone to have one, but the R17 Pro has few tricks up its sleeve. The main camera has a 12MP sensor with 1/2.5-inch size. It comes with a variable aperture of f/1.5 – f/2.4, the same one found on the Galaxy S9+ and the Note 9.

It is paired with a 20MP secondary camera, and a third 3D TOF depth sensor. TOF cameras are usually used for face unlock, but this one can be used for 3D photo captures.

The front camera is housed on the watderdrop notch. It has a 25MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture lens.

Another highlight feature is the phone’s SuperVOOC charging technology. The 3,700 mAh battery is separated into two 1,850 mAh halves. This lets the 50W SuperVOOC charger fill up the phone faster, up to 40% charge in just 10 minutes.
