It is not the same as the setup found on Huawei’s P20 Pro
The R17 and R17 Pro are slated to be official in the coming days. While OPPO has prematurely revealed the R17, little is known about the Pro version. While it is rumored to have a triple rear camera setup, the most recent teaser reveals a variable aperture camera instead.
Newer reports on the R17 Pro indicate that it will have a triple rear camera system, but the third camera has a different purpose: instead of having a monochrome or optical zoom function like the one on Huawei’s P20 Pro, the R17 Pro’s third camera is for ToF 3D vision technology.
The said technology is said to collect long-distance 3D information, with applications that include augmented reality and gesture information. In addition, the new module is meant to improve AI performance.
Aside from this new tech, the R17 Pro will have AI Super Clear, which is meant to improve low light shots.
