Oppo A17 arrived in South-East Asia earlier this year, and now the affordable smartphone is hitting Europe. The Helio G35-powered device was spotted in the Netherlands with a price tag of €179 in two colors - Blue and Black; the Orange design remains exclusive in India for now.
The A17 is an entry-level smartphone with a 720p screen and a 5MP selfie shooter inside a waterdrop notch. There is a 50MP camera on the back, assisted by a 2MP depth sensor for better portrait shots.
One feature that will make you rub your eye in disbelief is the micro USB port for charging the 5,000 mAh battery. However, it does bring Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1 on top, as well as a fingerprint scanner, embedded in the power key.
The Oppo A17 can be currently found at the Dutch division of Mediamarkt, as well as other major retailers, even if it’s not listed on Oppo Netherlands. Color choices are Blue and Black, and everyone who orders today can receive their smartphone as early as tomorrow.
