The smartphone will come with 16MP + 2MP dual-camera at the back and a 25MP camera at the front. The smartphone will run on Android 8.1 Oreo OS customised with ColorOS 5.2.

Oppo R17 Price in India

The Oppo R17 price in India is expected to be Rs. 25,990. The Oppo R17 Neo is due to be launched in December 2018.

Oppo R17 Neo Expected Specifications

The Oppo R17 Neo appears to be a close replica of the R17; they share several key specifications. According to the leaks, the R17 Neo will feature the same 6.41-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen that is in the Oppo R17. As our exclusive renders reveal, the display has a water drop notch and fairly thin bezels.

The main difference between the Oppo R17 and the R17 Neo, however, appears in the processor and memory configuration. The R17 Neo will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 instead of the Snapdragon 710. The SoC will be paired with 4GB of RAM instead of 6GB/8GB options on the R17, but packs the same 128GB of internal storage. Hybrid dual SIM slot allows memory expansion by up to 256GB. Similar to the Oppo R17, the R17 Neo will run on the ColorOS 5.2 UI by Oppo, which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

There’s a slight difference between the R17 and the R17 Neo in the camera department. The latter comes with 16MP + 2MP dual camera setup, instead of 16MP + 5MP on its sibling. The 16MP sensor will come with f/1.75 aperture, while the 2MP depth-sensor will come with f/2.4 aperture. The camera hardware though not cutting-edge, is fairly decent for a mid-range smartphone. Hopefully, the rear camera will have 4K video recording.

The Oppo R17 Neo gets dual-SIM option, 4G VoLTE, a USB Type-C Port, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, and a 3600mAh battery that might support VOOC Flash Charge. The handset measures 158.3 x 75.5 x 7.4 mm and weighs 156 grams. The mid-range Android handset will launch in Mocha Red and Astral Blue color options.
