At an event in Mumbai, Chinese smartphone brand OPPO launched the OPPO R17 Pro in India with a price tag of ₹45,990. However, that’s not the only smartphone OPPO launched in the country. Alongside the R17 Pro, the company also launched the OPPO R17 in India.
The OPPO R17 looks very similar to the R17 Pro. Like the R17 Pro, the R17 also comes with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display that’s covered with Gorilla Glass 6 and has a waterdrop-shaped notch up top. However, while the display on the R17 Pro has aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, the display on the R17 comes with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels.
Another difference between the R17 Pro and the R17 is the processor. The R17 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 710 SoC, whereas the R17 is powered by Snapdragon 670 SoC. But, both of them have 8 GB of RAM at their disposal.
That said, unlike the R17 Pro that comes with triple cameras at the back, the R17 comes only with dual cameras – 16 MP and 5 MP – at the back. The 25 MP front snapper is retained though.
The OPPO R17 features an in-display fingerprint scanner which is also present on the R17, however, the battery underneath is a bit smaller than the one on R17 Pro. The R17 Pro comes with two cells of 1850 mAh each which translates to a total of 3700 mAh of battery power, whereas, the R17 comes with a single 3500 mAh battery.
