Oppo hops on the music phone bandwagon hoping to catch youth customers with it’s excellent audio features. The Oppo R817 out-of-the-box supports automatic lyric and cover search, and flac / app double lossless, ogg and amr as well as the standard audio formats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It also comes with “Dirac HD Sound”.

From the Dirac website:

Dirac HD Sound™ is a premium mixed-phase speaker correction technology. Unlike equalizers and other sound-correction systems, Dirac HD sound™ also optimizes the sound system’s transient reproduction – a factor critical for accurate staging and clarity.

The benefits of using Dirac HD Sound™ include:

  • Voice correction – voices become clear and intelligible
  • Stereo image correction – sound is decoupled from the loudspeakers
  • Bass correction – a deeper and tighter bass
  • Listening fatigue minimization
  • Tonal & transient correction

Technical highlights of Dirac HD Sound™

  • True impulse response optimization
  • High class magnitude response optimization striking a perfect balance between resolution and robustness
  • Mixed-phase filter technology
  • Unconventional combination of FIR and IIR filters for the most efficient implementation
  • Advanced, yet easy-to-use software

The Oppo R817, as any mtk mt6577 / mtk6577 smartphone should, will be able to playback 720p no problem. Oppo R817 scores a not-too-shabby 5381 on Antutu and a very good 1187 on Vellamo. Vellamo tests stability and performance of web rendering and was developed by Qualcomm. 1187 places it just beneath the Xiaomi MI-One Plus, and about 20% behind the HTC One-X.

The camera is 8mp and I think puts out some quality shots.

As you can see it puts out some very decent outdoor shots. The indoor shots are a bit dark, but a quick “auto contrast” within your favorite photo editor does wonders. Hover over the images below to see the difference.

No word on price yet, but looks like a good option for those looking for great audio capabilities. Oppo going with mtk mt6577 / mtk6577 should keep the cost reasonable. Will give more word as it comes. Please comment and subscribe to keep the Beat rollin’.
