Oppo R17 is the cheaper variant of Oppo R17 Pro with dual-rear camera setup.
Alongside Oppo R17 Pro launch in India today, Oppo also surprisingly launched the more affordable Oppo R17 as well. The device was first introduced in China in August, and it features quite a few similar specifications from the Pro variant.
Similar to the Oppo R17 Pro, the R17 also boasts a water drop notch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection. The smartphone also ditches the physical fingerprint scanner, and comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It also comes with Oppo’s proprietary VOOC (not super VOOC) fast charging technology that the company is promising to offer talktime worth two hours in just five minutes of charging.
The Oppo R17 is priced at Rs 34,990. The smartphone will be up for pre-order on Amazon India starting today, but Oppo hasn’t said anything on the release date yet.
