Earlier in January this year, OPPO had launched the F15 mid-range smartphone. Now, the brand has launched its successor called the OPPO F17. Unlike the F15, the latest offering comes in standard and Pro variants.
The OPPO F17 and F17 Pro are quite different in terms of specifications. The former comes with toned-down specs but an upgraded processor compared to the F15. Both smartphones feature a square-shaped camera module, an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 30W VOOC flash charging. The OPPO F17 series will compete against the POCO X2 and Realme 6 in the sub-Rs 20,000 price segment.

The OPPO F17 and F17 Pro smartphones sport FHD+ sAMOLED displays measuring 6.44-inches. The former comes with a waterdrop notch while the latter features a dual punch-hole cutout at the top left corner. Both devices are equipped with an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The F17 series is touted to be the sleekest phone measuring 7.48mm.

On the other hand, the standard F17 retains the same setup as the Pro variant but with a 16MP primary lens. The camera on both smartphones comes packed with various AI features.
