Design, Body Build, and Display

OPPO A17k measures 164.2 x 75.6 x 8.3 mm and weighs 189g. The device’s body is made of plastic at the back, a plastic body frame, and a glass front. The 6.56-inch IPS display of the Oppo handset has a refresh rate of 60Hz and a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~269 PPI density). It is an average resolution for both work and plays on your device.

Performance and Battery

The handset has a 5,000mAh removable Li-PO battery powering it. It supports up to a 4G network and is ideal for calls, texts, and playing games pre-installed on the device. Enjoy FM Radio on the device as you commute or work and connect to other devices via Bluetooth and WiFi. A 3.5mm jack will enable you to access your FM Radio and media entertainment on the Oppo A17k hands-free.

Installed on the device is a MediaTek MT6765 Helio G35 (12 nm). Running applications and commands in the background is a decent Octa-core (4×2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53) CPU and PowerVR GE8320 GPU. To ensure you do not run out of space and your device operates optimally, Oppo installed 64GB 3GB RAM internal memory on their A17k handset, using eMMC 5.1 technology to maximize space.


Oppo A17k is a downgraded version of the Oppo A17. The front camera features a single, 5 MP, f/2.2 (wide) camera for selfies and video chats. The front camera’s power is glaringly low, even though it can capture 1080p@30fps.

At the back, capture moments and life experiences using a massive single, 8 MP, f/2.0, (wide), AF. With capabilities of 1080p@30fps, you will be able to capture moments in still and motion, but a lot is left to be desired. Supported by LED flash and panorama, the 8MP lens needs to catch up to the best standards in the modern-day mobile world of cameras.

Connectivity and Sensors

Oppo A17 is a 4G-network-enabled device. Enjoy fast upload and download speeds, depending on the signal strength of your network provider. For convenience, Oppo installed several sensors on its handset: Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, Proximity, and Compass
