Suggested January 2024 Vankyo Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector Review

Projectors give you the flexibility to watch TV and movies or view picture slideshows on a much larger screen. However, they’re often large and even heavy, making them difficult to set up. With the new VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector, size is no longer an obstacle. The small form factor is designed for convenient storage and travel without sacrificing video quality. We take a look at the Leisure 470 Pro in this hands-on review.

This is a sponsored article and was made possible by VANKYO. The actual contents and opinions are the sole views of the author who maintains editorial independence even when a post is sponsored.

Overview of Features

The VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector is packed full of features, despite being just 7.8 in. x 5.7 in. x 3 in. and weighing just over two pounds. It’s around 40 percent smaller than other comparable projectors on the market. It also comes in a protective case that stores the remote and cables too.

Don’t let the size fool you though. Enjoy vivid, bright FHD 1080p resolution on screens from 39 in. to 250 in. The projector diffuses reflection and reduces blue light to make it easier on your eyes to binge watch your favorites and for more comfortable viewing overall.

The 3 W speaker gives you full, rich sound inside and outside, making it ideal for outdoor parties and movie nights. Don’t be afraid to use it for longer periods, as two built-in fans keep the unit cool for hours of use.

The 5G Wi-Fi technology gives you smoother streaming without lag, which is perfect for gaming, sports, and much more.

Also setting the Leisure 470 apart from the rest is that it’s compatible with most devices. The project features the following ports:

HDMI x 2




Audio out

It’s also compatible with most streaming sticks, such as Roku and Firestick, gaming systems, DVD players, mobile devices, and computers. You can connect directly or use Wi-Fi.

There’s support for a variety of video formats (AVI, MP4, MKV, FLV, MOV, RMVB, 3GP, MPEG, H.264, and XVID) and audio formats (MP3, WMA, MP2, AAC, FLAC, and PCM).

In the Box

It’s hard not to be impressed with the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector right out of the box. It’s already packaged neatly in the canvas case that has a handle to carry it with you anywhere. Cushioned sides and compartments keep the projector safe when stored or on the go.

Once you open the case, you’ll see all the included accessories:

Lens cap (already on the projector)

Power supply

HDMI cable

Cleaning supplies


Remote (no batteries included)

While it’d be great if at least a small screen was included, you’ll need to buy that separately. Luckily, I already had a screen on hand. You can also just use an available wall or a white sheet.

Exploring the Projector

While an easy-to-use remote is included, everything you need to control the projector is on it. The top features nine buttons for choosing your source, opening the menu, navigating between items, adjusting the volume, and turning the unit on/off. Scrolling wheels on the top also let you adjust the image to your needs.

The side features all your inputs and ensures easy access, even if you’re mounting the projector. Of course, there’s also the power cable port on the opposite side, which helps prevent the power cable and any source cables from tangling so easily.

Getting Started

Getting started isn’t complicated at all. Upon turning on the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector, I had to use the focus wheel to sharpen the image to see the menu. Otherwise, it was a blur. However, the wheels on the top of the projector make quick work of adjusting the image to get it as sharp as you want, whether you’re using a smaller or larger screen.

I used an Android device to get connected the first time: I just had to switch the source to screen mirroring, select the correct network on my Android device, and I was ready to start mirroring my Android screen. It only took a few minutes to get everything set up.

Testing the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector

I had the perfect opportunity to test the Leisure 470 Pro on July 4th during a small gathering. I set up a screen (~100 inches) and connected my Android device to stream live fireworks on NBC and PBS via YouTube TV. While you can mount the projector if you want, I used a portable tool stand to sit it on. After several minutes of getting the image just right and using the bottom screw to get the angle right, we were ready to sit back and enjoy the fireworks.

The clarity was amazing! In fact, the picture was actually sharper than my TV, which makes me a little jealous. I kept having trouble with the bottom corner of my screen coming undone, so please ignore the wrinkle above. Thanks to the speaker, we could immerse ourselves in the experience with the loud booms of each firework, and the music performances sounded great. I only had to turn up the volume to around 60 percent, and even my closer neighbors could hear it.

We streamed fireworks, including a few YouTube videos with music and fireworks that served as a background for several hours. It made the entire event more festive.

What’s impressive is that the unit stayed fairly cool. While it gets warm, it never got hot. I only let it cool for about 15 minutes before putting it away.

The next step was to test it out with a direct connection. For this, I used a Roku stick. It connected easily to the HDMI port, and the device had no trouble recognizing it. This makes a great combo for using the project when traveling, allowing you to take your familiar TV setup with you.

It also worked very well with my DVD player, and you can also a speaker or soundbar to give you even bigger sound.

Final Thoughts

The VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector is an impressive projector in a very compact size. The smaller size makes it easier to mount almost anywhere or take with you in the handy carrying case.

It’s highly compatible with most devices, whether you connect wirelessly or via HDMI or USB. The only complaint I really have is that most products include batteries if a remote is included, but that’s a really small issue that doesn’t affect the projector’s performance in any way.

You can pick up the VANKYO Leisure 470 Pro Phone Projector for just $149.99 after applying the discount code maketecheasier.

Vivo X60 Pro+ Review: Pro Camera, Regular Phone

It’s a shame that the Vivo X60 Pro+ isn’t releasing outside of China and India, because it makes a pretty compelling case that Vivo can hold its own against Samsung and Xiaomi in the flagship space.

While those brands are mostly saving their best camera setups for ‘Ultra’ phones that also boast huge displays and even bigger price tags, Vivo has squeezed a brilliant quad-camera module into a relatively compact device.

It’s kept costs down by making compromises elsewhere, making the X60 Pro+ an excellent choice for anyone who wants one of the best phone cameras around but doesn’t want to drop over a grand on a phone they can’t even hold in one hand.

At points it feels like those compromises go too far – wireless charging is an odd omission for a phone at this level – but I suspect that the X60 Pro+ will hit a sweet spot for many.

Design and build

I’ve made no secret of my love for Vivo’s current flagship design language – I think it’s pretty much the best around – and the X60 Pro+ is essentially a muted, faux leather-coated extension of that philosophy.

The company’s trademark tiered camera module is here, though larger than ever to fit in four lenses and some pretty sizeable sensors.

The rear of the phone is coated in vegan leather – blue in India, though China gets both that and a more vibrant orange option – which gives the phone a welcome tactility. The only downside is that it does make it thicker – at 9.1mm it does feel a little chunky, especially compared to the svelte, glass-encased X60 and X60 Pro.

The 6.56in display is curved at the sides, but just enough to keep the phone comfortable to hold without impact usability. The black bezel is pretty slim too.

You get a USB-C port for charging, but no headphone jack. Perhaps more surprising for a flagship, you don’t get stereo speakers, though the single down-firing speaker is pretty potent. More concerningly perhaps, there’s no IP rating, meaning there’s no guarantee of the phone’s water- and dust-resistance.


The X60 Pro+ packs a pretty typical flagship phone screen: a 120Hz AMOLED with support for HDR10 and high max brightness.

This isn’t one of the recent adaptive refresh rate displays, so it can only deliver 60Hz or 120Hz, or a smart switch mode to swap between the two, rather than hitting a full range of refresh rates to suit different content.

The bigger compromise here is that the resolution is only Full HD+ (1080 x 2376) rather than 2K or higher like most rival flagships. In all honesty, I think this is a smart swap: most people can’t spot the higher resolution on this screen size anyway, and having fewer pixels improves both battery life and gaming performance.

Specs and performance

If the display involves a minor drop from top specs, there’s no such compromise on the phone’s internals.

The X60 Pro+ is the only phone in the range powered by the flagship Snapdragon 888 chipset, guaranteeing the best performance around, along with strong 5G support. It’s joined by 8/12GB of RAM and 128/256GB of storage, although there’s no microSD card slot to expand that.

In benchmarks the phone excels, securing the best scores we’ve seen from any Snapdragon 888 phone yet, even trumping the gaming-focused Asus ROG Phone 5. You can see the benefit of the Full HD+ display in the GFXBench results, where it trounces its 2K rivals.

Setting artificial benchmarks aside, in regular use the phone is fast, responsive, and essentially lag-free, as you’d expect. Fundamentally, you can’t get meaningfully better performance than this elsewhere.


It’s fair to say that for most people the decision to buy the X60 Pro+ or not is going to come down to camera performance, so I’m relieved to say that the phone really does deliver here. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it’s the best camera phone out there right now, but it definitely belongs in the conversation.

There are four rear lenses here: a 50Mp, f/1.6 main lens using the large Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor and OIS; a 48Mp, f/2.2 ultrawide camera with Vivo’s custom gimbal stabilisation system; a 32Mp, f/2.0, 2x zoom telephoto lens; and an 8Mp, f/3.4, 5x zoom periscope lens with OIS. Let’s take them in turn.

The selling point of the main camera is the large 1/1.31” sensor, which helps the camera take in more light for more detailed shots, accurate colours, and improved dynamic range (with the added benefit of a natural bokeh effect in some close-up shots). Shots are punchy and attractive, even in dimmer light, and the main camera does an excellent job of balancing exposure in challenging conditions like dark environments with a few strong light sources.

Details remain strong and crisp even if you punch in or crop, and there’s little evidence of noise, artifacting, or over-aggressive sharpening in the final images. Colours can be a little aggressive – Vivo’s colour science is a little heavy on saturation for my taste – but this is far from the worst offender for that, with none of my shots coming out saturated to the point of artificiality.

The main lens is backed up by an ultrawide using Sony’s 48Mp IMX598 sensor and Vivo’s gimbal stabilisation system – making it essentially the same setup as the main camera in the X60 Pro. I’m a huge fan of this recent trend for ultrawide lenses that can keep up with the main shooters, and while the two cameras here do pull apart a little, there’s not much in it.

The ultrawide lacks some of the finer detail you’ll find from the main lens – even with that gimbal stabilisation to keep it steady – but colours and white balance are impeccable. Thanks to the gimbal it exceeds the main camera in low light, with that extra steadiness helping to maintain detail while delivering superior exposure.

The next lens over is a 32Mp 2x zoom telephoto, which Vivo bills a ‘portrait lens’ – it’s actually the lens that the phone’s portrait mode defaults to, though you can also use the main camera if you prefer.

Once again, colour consistency is remarkable, and in good lighting results are mostly on a par with the other lenses, though there’s a little more evidence of sharpening to maintain detail. It’s in dimmer light that this begins to suffer, with details getting lost and noise creeping in, but equally, I’ve managed some fantastic lowlight shots out of this camera during my testing.

Finally, an 8Mp, 5x periscope rounds out the set. This is no match for the 10x periscopes in the top-end Samsung and Xiaomi ultra-flagships, but for most people this will be more than enough zoom. At 5x results are fantastic, and remain good up to 20x or so, but as you approach the 60x max a watercolour effect begins to set in. This is also the only lens where colour consistency is slightly off, with paler results than the other three lenses – not necessarily a bad thing though.

The rear lenses come with Zeiss branding and the promise that they met the optical company’s quality control and certification standards. More importantly, the rear module boasts Zeiss’s T* lens coating, which reduces glare and artifacting from bright light. It won’t eliminate it entirely – you’ll spot some lens flare in my sample shots – but I’ve definitely noticed less glare and cleaner shots in especially bright light, so it is doing something.

On the front, the 32Mp, f/2.5 selfie camera is also a triumph. By selfie standards this is high resolution, and the results speak for themselves, with crisp details matched by strong colours and an effective portrait mode with customisable depth of field (and some aggressive beauty mode options, if that’s your thing).

Vivo offers a wealth of photo modes across the lenses, with long and double exposures, separate dedicated modes for lunar and astral photography, and a comprehensive pro mode with RAW support. Night mode is supported on every lens, portrait on everything except the ultrawide, and high resolution shots on everything except the periscope and selfie camera.

Video caps out at 8K@30fps (on the main and ultrawide) or 4K@60fps. HDR is limited to 4K@30fps, and only available on the main and portrait lenses for some reason. The main and ultrawide can also deliver super stabilised video, combining OIS and EIS (and the gimbal for the ultrawide) to impressive effect.

This is amped up even further for ‘Super Night’ video, which crops aggressively into the gimbal-stabilised ultrawide camera for the sake of stable lowlight video.

All-in-all, this is an impressively well-rounded camera set. Short of including a 10x periscope or an even larger main sensor there would be few ways to improve on the camera hardware on offer here. And while I wouldn’t say Vivo’s computational photography prowess is quite up there with the likes of Apple and Google, the gap is closing more than ever.

Battery and charging

The 4200mAh battery in the X60 Pro+ is relatively petite by modern standards, which is probably a big part of how Vivo has kept the phone thin and light.

While this is reflected in some underwhelming battery benchmark results, in regular used the Pro+ actually impressed me with its longevity, easily lasting more than a day and making it to two with light use. This is likely thanks to a combination of smart power optimisation software and the decision to stick with an FHD+ screen – high-resolution panels are a major power draw.

Charging is more of a mixed bag. Over USB-C you get 55W charging speeds, which in my testing equated to 49% in 15 minutes and 82% in half an hour. That’s not the fastest you’ll find – and in fact even some budget phones go faster these days – but it’s almost certainly fast enough.

More disappointing is the fact that there’s no wireless charging at all. Vivo still doesn’t support the tech in any of its phones, even as it’s become standard across rival flagship devices. At this point, it feels like a pretty striking omission.


The X60 Pro+ comes with two different software configurations depending on where you buy it. In China, the phone is sold with Vivo’s new Origin OS, which I haven’t had the chance to test, so I can’t speak to how it runs.

The Indian version of the phone still runs the company’s older FuntouchOS, and I’ll be honest: I wish it didn’t.

Much of this can be uninstalled, disabled, or otherwise hidden away, but some features – Jovi and the core Vivo apps – are there to stay, whether you like them or not.

This isn’t the worst Android experience out there, and it’s getting better over time, but Vivo is still behind rivals when it comes to western tastes for an operating system. The company itself even knows that, and ships its phones in Europe with something much closer to stock Android, but with no official European release on the cards for the X60 Pro+, that isn’t an option here.

Price and availability

The X60 Pro+ starts from ¥4,998 in China (£550/$760) and Rs 69,990 in India (£680/$940), so if you want to import one you should expect to pay around that much, plus some for shipping and import taxes.

Check out Giztop and Ali Express for Chinese import options, or Flipkart and Amazon for the Indian version. Remember that your choice will impact your software options, and which colours are available.

Regardless, you can probably get the X60 Pro+ for less than the price of the Galaxy S21 Ultra or Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, but you will be paying a similar price to the likes of the standard Galaxy S21, OnePlus 9 Pro, or iPhone 12.

The camera system here is quite possibly the best you’ll find at that price point, but just remember that you’ll be missing out on niceties like wireless charging, an IP rating, and stereo speakers. Check out our guides to the best camera phones and best Android phones for more options.


The pitch for the Vivo X60 Pro+ is pretty simple: an ultra flagship camera in a (relatively) affordable package.

With four lenses, including huge sensors, gimbal stabilisation, and a periscope zoom, you’re getting a camera spec that’s up there with the best around, but in a phone that’s cheaper and more compact than similar Ultra rivals.

On the other hand, you’ll also have to give up wireless charging, an IP rating, and stereo speakers – and put up with some occasionally frustrating software.

If photography is your focus, this is a smart tradeoff. But dropping this much on a phone without the usual flagship luxuries might not make sense for everyone else.

How To Connect Phone To Projector

Mirroring your phone screen through a projector is really easy if you have the necessary tools. The technology has been around for a while, and you can connect just about any modern-day phone to a projector.

This feature is especially useful when you need to show your phone’s content to a big audience, like watching movies with friends or giving a PowerPoint presentation. Furthermore, you can do this just about anywhere with a portable projector.

If you want to know how you can connect your phone to a projector, we have covered all the necessary information in this article.

There are mainly two ways you can connect your phone with a projector. You can do it with a wired cable or wireless broadcasting features like Wi-Fi direct or Airplay.

The best thing about wired connections is the speed and video quality it offers. Some cables can handle up to 4k resolution videos, and you will rarely experience any lag or buffering in the video.

Almost all of the phones available today support either of three different types of ports. Older Android phones use micro USB ports, while newer ones support USB Type-C, and all iOS devices use the lightning port.

Depending on these three different ports, you need compatible cables and adapters to connect your phone to a projector.

While MHL cables may confuse you, they are Micro USB to HDMI cables. As micro USB ports didn’t support video transfer through its cable, MHL technology was used to make it possible.

If your phone has a MicroUSB port, you have to use this cable to connect your phone to a projector. Additionally, if you have a really old phone with a micro USB that doesn’t support MHL, your phone might have trouble connecting to a projector with a wired connection.

Furthermore, MHL supports transfer of videos up to 1080p resolution and up to 2.25Gbps bandwidth. However, before getting an MHL cable, you should consider its two types and which one is appropriate for you.

Active MHL Cable

An active MHL cable has a MicroUSB head, an HDMI head, and a USB head. The other USB head can be plugged into an adapter or charge outlet to power your phone to support the connection between it and the projector. It also charges your phone while doing so.

Most older phones require power to support the projector and your phone’s connection. If you have a phone that came out after 2023, your phone should be able to handle the connection with the projector without additional power.

For the HDMI head, almost every projector with an HDMI input port should support an active MHL cable.

Passive MHL Cable

A passive MHL cable only has a micro USB head and an HDMI head. In this cable, the power is sent directly from the projector through the HDMI port to your phone.

However, not every projector supports passive MHL cables. Regular HDMI ports aren’t designed to output power, as you will need specific MHL ports that support a passive MHL cable.

For android phones with Type-C ports, you can use a Type-C to HDMI adapter to connect your phone to the projector. You can plug in the Type-C head to your phone and the HDMI head to the HDMI input port in your projector. 

After ensuring your projector is set to the right channel, your phone’s content should be displayed through the projector.

With USB C to HDMI cable, it can support sending videos up to 4k resolutions and bandwidths up to 18Gbps. However, unlike MHL, you can not charge your phone while being connected through this cable.

A Lightning to HDMI adapter works similarly to USB-C to HDMI adapter. You can connect the lightning end to your iOS device and the HDMI to your projector’s input port.

After setting up your projector, your screen’s content should be displayed from the projector.

USB C to USB C can also be used to connect your phone to your projector. However, you need to ensure that your phone has a Type-C port and your projector supports USB-C as input.

If you meet the requirements, this is the easiest method to set up your phone and projector. Connect your devices, and your projector should start mirroring the phone screen.

Like USB C to HDMI, this cable also supports video transfer of up to 4k resolutions. It also charges your phone while being connected.

Note: Some USB C to USB C cables, like macbook charger cables, are charge only, and they do not support sending video through it.

While HDMI connectors have replaced VGA connectors, some projectors still use VGA ports for input. In this case, you can use VGA adapters similar to the HDMI adapters mentioned above.

You can use a USB-C to VGA adapter for Android with a Type-C port. For Android with MicroUSB, you can use MHL to VGA adapter. For iOS devices, you can use lightning to VGA adapters.

You can also connect your phone to a projector wirelessly, and there are several methods you can go about it. Some projectors support connection over Wi-Fi connection, and some can even stream your screen through Bluetooth.

Many projectors nowadays support wireless connection with mobile through Wi-Fi direct. If you do have this kind of projector, you can connect to any android phone that has Wi-Fi direct capabilities.

Follow the steps below to do so:

Enable the screen mirroring option or switch depending on your projector. (If you can’t find it, look in the projector’s manufacturer’s website or instructions manual.)

Open settings in your phone.

For iOS devices, you can use Airplay to display your phone’s content through a projector. However, your projector also has to have wireless capabilities for this to work.

Enable screen mirroring option in your projector. (It can either be a physical button or a menu option.)

Launch Settings on your iOS device.

If it asks for a password, it should be displayed by the projector.

Select your projector.

Toggle on Mirroring. (Some devices may not require this step.)

If you have a projector that supports input through Bluetooth, you only need to pair the devices in Bluetooth mode to connect your phone to the projector.

Follow the steps below to do so:

Pair the devices.

Miracast is a wireless technology with which you can share the contents of one screen with other display devices. It builds upon the Wi-FI Direct feature in android and facilitates a smoother connection between your phone and the display device.

Android used to have Miracast integrated into them till the Android 5 Lollipop version. While Miracast is no longer integrated into Android, tons of third-party apps still use the technology to cast a phone’s screen content to another device.

Some of the applications that use Miracast technology are Miracast – Wifi Display, Miracast Screen Sharing, and EZMira. As Miracast is based on Wi-Fi Direct, they are similar in fashion with how they work.

Another method to connect your phone to a projector is through a Chromecast or other similar device. It usually comes with a wireless dongle you can plug into the projector.

After doing so, you can connect wirelessly with the Chromecast to start sharing your phone’s content with your projector.

Some projectors have their own applications developed by the manufacturer for connecting to smartphones. If your projector does have one, you can use that application to connect your phone to your projector.

Beats Solo Pro Review

Once upon a time, you were buying into a very particular audio style with a pair of Beats headphones. Lots and lots of bass was the recipe of choice. Since then things have evolved, and as a result the Solo Pro are much more suited to a broader range of musical styles.

There’s a welcome clarity to the audio. Yes, there’s no shortage of bass, but it doesn’t overwhelm the treble and mids. I suspect the fact that, with active noise cancellation holding ambient noise at bay, you can have the overall music volume lower without missing out on detail helps there too.

I’m all over the place with my musical tastes, but the Solo Pro held up both with vocal-heavy musicals at one end and thick, heavy electronica at the other. With external noise cancelled out, tracks have a broad soundstage to occupy, and the Beats coax that out nicely. Whereas once upon a time you bought Beats headphones for a certain type of music, the Solo Pro are happy to jam along with whatever style you’re into – even if it’s wide-ranging.

It’s worth trying the Solo Pro out in an Apple Store before you buy them, partly because of the fit but also because there’s no way to adjust the EQ. If you don’t like Beats’ tuning, you should look elsewhere for your headphones. Beats does have an Android app, but that’s just for managing pairing and handling firmware updates; there’s no equalizer or different musical profiles, as many other headphones offer.

Similarly, there’s no way to adjust the level of active noise cancellation, beyond switching between full ANC and Transparency mode. In the case of the Sony’s, for example, you can slide between full isolation and a more ambient mix, or have the headphones automatically adjust according to your environment. Beats, though, takes on all those decisions itself.

That’s not to say it’s not a clever system. Microphones on the outside of the headphones track ambient sound, and then calculate the inverse waveform to remove that from what you hear. Further microphones on the inside of the earcups, meanwhile, monitor what you’re actually hearing compared to the original track’s waveform, and then adjust the ANC algorithm thousands of times a second to make sure you’re not missing out on detail in your music.

It works great in busy urban streets or with droning background noise like on planes. To my ears, Sony’s ANC still has an edge, but either is going to be transformational if you’re moving from regular, non-noise cancelling headphones.

Where the Beats do shine is in Transparency mode. Effectively that provides a mixture of ANC and ambient sound, so that you can still be somewhat aware of what’s going on in the world around you. It’s useful for not getting run down in the street because you didn’t hear a car coming, or allowing coworkers to get your attention in the office.

Other ANC headphones have such a mode, but Beats’ stands out as being particularly well tuned. There’s no tinniness or lag to voices, nor distracting echo; even my own voice sounded relatively normal, British accent notwithstanding. That’s all the more important since, as with full ANC, there’s no way to manually adjust the balance in Transparency mode.

Oppo R17 Pro Phone Has 2 Batteries: Is This The Future?

Oppo R17 Pro phone has 2 batteries: is this the future?

This week the folks at Oppo delivered a “Pro” version of the R17, a device we recently got a peek at a little over a week ago. This new version looks rather similar to its predecessor – or launch partner? Either way, it’s quite remarkably similar in exterior build and internal software. This is the Oppo R17 Pro, and I dare you to guess why it has two batteries instead of just one.

This smartphone is very similar to the Oppo R17, revealed in the week of August 13th, 2023. Here we’re having a look at an amped-up edition of that device, now coming with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display, with Corning Gorilla Glas 6 up front, and with Android 8.1 inside. This Pro version also comes with a total of four cameras – one up front and three on the back.

The Oppo R17 Pro’s display has 1080 x 2340 pixels across it with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. As with other Oppo devices, this phone runs ColorOS over Android, providing a unique experience to each Android user. Inside this machine is the relatively new Qualcomm SDM710 Snapdragon 710. Perhaps most important from that SoC is its ability to connect with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X15 modem – working with “stronger signal” through “hard-to-penetrate walls.”

There’s a 25-megapixel camera up front for all the selfies in the WORLD. On the back the triple camera setup is 12MP + 20MP + a TOF depth sensor. According to Oppo, this setup is for “taking full 3D photos” and getting some super-quick focus.

Also this phone has two batteries. What in the world?

This phone has 2x 1850mAh batteries. Each charges with a single Super VOOC system (10 minutes from 0% to 40% charge) for a total capacity of around 3700mAh. Oppo suggests that because the two batteries can be charged at once, charging can go faster than if the device only used one unit. How strange is that! Imagine if the phone had a bunch of tiny batteries – how would that work? Did we just see into the future?

According to Oppo (translated, roughly): “The R17 Pro uses an equivalent 3700mAh dual battery. The maximum charging power is close to 50W, and it can be charged to 40% of the total power in 10 minutes, which brings about a visible increase in power. More intelligent five-core protection, five chips full monitoring, charging is more secure.”

• Battery type: non-removable battery

• Cell capacity: 2x1850mAh, equivalent 3700mAh battery energy

• Charging type: Support SuperVOOC

Up front there’s an under-display fingerprint scanner for quick unlocks. This device is wild.

As yet, the folks at Oppo have not revealed the price or the release date for this smartphone. It’s likely this device will be released within the next few weeks, and certainly before the end of this year. Cross your fingers for a price that fits the specs!
