The Oppo R17 on the hand is a watered down version of the Oppo R17 Pro, but still with some interesting features. First, it boasts of the same 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 6 for protection with water dew notch, but has swapped the SD 710 SoC for the Octa-core 10 nm Snapdragon 670 chipset. RAM size remains at 8GB, with 128GB storage which is once again not expandable. A vertical dual rear camera setup, a 25MP single selfie master, and a 3500mAh battery round off the spec list.
