When Huawei introduced the Huawei P20 Pro with triple camera many thought that the rest of the manufacturers would add to that trend and begin to implement three cameras in the rear area.
It was not so, and almost half a year later the Chinese manufacturer can still differentiate its top of the range by that provision.
However, one of its biggest rivals, OPPO, will shortly present a new smartphone that will also have three cameras in the rear area, although it will not work as in the Huawei mobile.
Triple camera and 3D sensor?
In the video published by the OPPO profile on Wibo, the Chinese social network, we see how the new model is very similar to the OPPO R17 already announced, with the same tiny notch and the fingerprint sensor built into the screen.
But if we go to the rear area we will see how there is a substantial difference and that there are three photographic sensors, in addition to the flash.

It is expected that this new camera has a variable opening such as the Samsung Galaxy S9, which allows you to adapt the image to the amount of light outside. The options will be the same, from f / 1.5 and f / 2.4.
Where it will be more different, in theory, it is in the 3D sensor, an element that the iPhone X and the OPPO Find X have in the front camera that allows scanning elements in three dimensions. This in the front area is used to create high quality selfies, unlock safely …
The implementation in the back area is strange and perhaps OPPO will focus this function on virtual reality or augmented reality, whether in the field of games or others.
However, we still have to wait for the confirmation of the company to be certain that this will be so, because in the Weibo post mention is made of the 3D finish of the glass and it is possible that some media are confusing both.
The rest of the benefits are, for the moment, a mystery, although it is rumored that the chosen processor will be the Snapdragon 710. We will know next week, when the announcement is officially announced. OPPO R17 Pro.
