Weve been wondering about the fingerprint reader on the Oppo R17 if its not on the back, will it be under the display? Thats exactly what the latest leak claims, showing a telling fingerprint graphic on the display.
But the credibility of this rumor is under question. Note the dual rear camera its vertical. In the images from TENAA the camera was horizontal. We tend to believe TENAA more than random rumors, though theres chance there has been a mix-up.
The Oppo R17 may have an under display fingerprint reader
See, the official image of the Oppo F9 Pro shows a horizontal dual camera and a tiny notch. Its possible the rumors confused the two phones since they look so similar (that notch especially).
If thats the case, then the Oppo R17 may indeed have a vertical dual camera, just like the OnePlus 6. The two companies have been known to share design elements, though the rear camera is the one place where they diverged last time around the R15 had a horizontal camera, the OnePlus a vertical one.
Its not impossible that Oppo would go for a vertical camera on the R17 (its more premium offering) and stick with the old design on the F9. But as it stands, this rumor gets filed under maybe.
