Recently two Oppo branded smartphones bearing model number PBEM00 and PBET00 appears at 3C certification. Today both these smartphones appear at TENAA listing. The listing images are exactly the same as the Oppo R17 images we have seen so far in earlier leaks and rumors.
The TENAA listing images confirm both the PBEM00 / PBET00 featuring an ultra-thin notch dubbed as waterdrop notch. It's the same notch which Oppo F9 is featuring. On the rear side, you will get dual cameras placed vertically in the center. The device lacks fingerprint scanner on the rear and front-facing side which hints it could have an in-glass fingerprint scanner.
Unfortunately, the listing didn't reveal many hardware specs details. The listing reveals the PBEM00 and PBET00 are featuring a 6.4-inches display, the device's dimensions are 157.5 x 74.9 x 7.5mm. Both are running on a 3,415mAH battery cell.
A Chinese tipster recently claimed that PBEM00 / PBET00 will be announced as R17. He further claimed the R17 Pro yet to appear in any certification. The 3C certification reveals the device support 20W fast charging.
From what we heard the R17 lineup will go official by the end of August. The R17 lineup could be the first smartphones in the market with Corning Gorilla Glass 6. The R17 is rumored to have 6GB RAM with 128GB storage and it will cost $437 whereas the R17 pro is expected with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, it is expected to cost $481.
Another Oppo smartphone bearing model number PAGM00 / PAGT00 appears at TENAA. In terms of looks, it is pretty close to PBEM00 / PBET00. The only prominent difference is the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the rear side. There are fiar chances it could be announced as a toned down variant under A lineup smartphones. At the moment the specs details are still in dark, however, we can expect more details in coming days.
