The company has revealed that the OPPO F17 Pro has a slim profile of 7.48 inches and it weighs only 164 grams. A disclaimer at the bottom-right corner of the teaser reveals that the OPPO F17 Pro will be priced under Rs 25,000 in India.

In January 2020, OPPO had launched the OPPO F15 phone in the country. The company did not launch a Pro variant for it. Considering that the firm has already started teasing the arrival of the F17 Pro, there could be a vanilla model with the OPPO F17 moniker as well. At present, there is no word on the specifications of the F17 Pro.

As far as the launch date of the OPPO F17 Pro is concerned, Sharma, who first revealed the existence of the F17 series had claimed that it may debut in the first week of September. The company is expected to reveal more information on the specs and features of the device through new teasers before making it official.
