Oppo’s smartphone portfolio continues to grow in Nepal. It recently announced the A77s and is now teasing the release of the Oppo A17k. So, in this post, we’ll look at the specifications, features, availability, and estimated price of the Oppo A17k in Nepal.
Oppo A17k Overview:
Like basically every other budget phone, the A17k comes with a familiar polycarbonate (plastic) build quality. Nonetheless, it looks quite modern with its flat frame design. It’s also not too heavy, weighing only 189 grams and available in Blue and Navy Blue, the latter of which appears to be a shade of black.
The back panel of the smartphone has matte finish and houses a pill-shaped flatter camera design. It is also IPX4-certified against water drips.
Up front, you’re looking at a 6.56-inch IPS LCD display with bezels on all four sides—especially on the chin. Unfortunately, the screen has HD+ resolution which refreshes at 60Hz and has a peak brightness of 600 nits. You can unlock the device via a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button.
Powering the things inside is an MediaTek Helio G35 chipset paired with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage. The device also facilitates extended RAM, which lets you use the phone’s storage as RAM. But it will have little-to-no bearing on smartphone performance since the storage used on the Oppo A17k is eMMC 5.1 which has low read/write speed.
Anyways, you can extend the storage up to 1TB via a microSD card. It boots on Android 12 based ColorOS 12.1. And fueling the device is a 5000mAh battery which charges via a microUSB port.
Rest of the specs
Camera-hardware on the Oppo A17k include an 8MP rear and 5MP selfie camera. The maximum video resolution you can shoot is [email protected] from both the front and back cameras. For audio, the device has a single speaker and, thankfully, a 3.5mm jack for wired earphones.
On the connectivity front, you get WiFi 5 and latest Bluetooth v5.3 support. And surprisingly, the device even supports LDAC codec. What’s missing here is a built-in gyroscope sensor which may not be a good thing for gamers.
