Oppo just last month released the A17, a low-end smartphone, to the Indian market, and today we get what is essentially an updated version of that device. They’re calling it the A17k, and Oppo has quietly posted details about it on their Indian website.
The Oppo A17k packs a 5,000 mAh battery, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a 6.56-inch 720×1612 60 Hz LCD display, a MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, and a notchless display. The primary camera is an 8 megapixel (MP) autofocus unit, while the front-facing camera is a 5 MP (MP) fixed focus unit.
The power button doubles as a fingerprint scanner, and the phone has an IPX4 rating, making it resistant to light rain and splashes. The device is powered by Android 12 and ColorOS 12.1. Choose between a gold or navy A17k.
The A17k differs from the existing A17 in that it has less RAM, a lower resolution main rear camera, and no depth sensor. Though they are otherwise identical in design and function, the two are distinguished primarily by their available colour palettes. The Oppo A17k will be available “coming soon” on Oppo’s Indian online store for INR 10,499, making it cheaper than the A17.
