So much has happened since the establishment of OPPO sub-brand Realme that you’d think it’s more than six months old. It has already released three smartphones and entered five markets — India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Soon, it will be in the Philippines.

The OPPO R17 Pro launches in stores in the Philippines today, November 24, with the premium midrange phone fetching a price tag of P38,990 or about $744 locally. Suppose you already own it. OPPO is giving you a reason to further explore its excellent night-shooting capabilities.

We’ve always been a firm believer of what we call among ourselves the 50/50 factor in photography. One should have the skills, and one should have the right tools. The two go hand in hand together.
