The OPPO RX17 Neo is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC. This is a step down from the SD670 found on the OPPO R17 National Bank version. It’s also lower than the Snapdragon 710 chip that comes with the OPPO R17 Pro. Although this smartphone uses a lower processor, it still comes with an on-screen fingerprint sensor. This is perhaps the most interesting aspect of this device. According to the current listing, the OPPO RX17 Neo is on pre-sale. This smartphone is selling for about €349 and the delivery time is 5-7 working days. It is available in red and blue colours.
