The sleekest smartphone of 2020 with Stylish Leather-feel Design
The simple yet elegant design of OPPO F17 lets the trendsetting generation express themselves and stand out. With a sleek design boasting a 7.45mm slim body, the OPPO F17 weighs just 163g with 1.67mm ultra-thin bezels created from laser-carving technology.
OPPO F17’s leather pattern colour with a material finish uses a leather-feel texture. This, paired with a matte finish for the back cover adds extra protection against scratches and fingerprint smudges. The smartphone comes in three exciting colours such as Dynamic Orange, Navy Blue, and Classic Silver. The Classic Silver variant uses a laser engraved OPPO monogram that makes the phone more stylish and visually stimulating.
Another element that enhances the sense of luxury is the camera design on the back cover, which showcases a perfectly balanced four-camera in 2×2 array design. The outer metal layer is inspired by luxury wristwatches for a premium look.
The 2.5D curved body gives this phone a simpler style and flatter body than the conventional 3D curved designs. This one-piece body provides a new, unique aesthetic for smartphones and provides users with a better feel when they’re holding the phone.
30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 that gives you 4 hours talk with just a 5-minute charge
Whether you are gaming, catching up on your favourite streams, chatting with friends on social media, or all of the above, you never have to worry about having enough juice to power your phone through the day. The OPPO F17 combines innovative power-saving with patented Flash Charge to make sure both ends are covered. F17’s 4015mAh battery (typical) uses 30W VOOC Flash Charge 4.0 which fully charges in just 56 minutes, and 72% in only 30 minutes.
For safety, the OPPO F17 is equipped with multiple hardware, software charging safety protections and five independent thermistors that automatically cut off the charging when the heating exceeds the safety range.
While Flash Charge goes a long way, OPPO F17 also provides additional battery saving technology like Super Power Saving Mode and Super Nighttime Standby. These modes ensure longer battery life and fewer worries while being out and about, gaming, watching videos or connecting with friends.
With Super Power Saving Mode, even when you’re on the battery as low as 5%, you need not worry as this mode extends the low battery through a series of power-saving strategies, and can be on standby for 17 hours.
Super Nighttime Standby mode -by learning the user’s sleeping habits, the ColorOS 7.2creates a pattern to perform ultra-power saving optimization at night, achieving only 2% power consumption for up to 8-hour standby.
Well-designed Display SUPER AMOLED Display that’s Comfortable on the Eyes
OPPO F17 is a smartphone-optimized for both ultimate play and eye comfort so users don’t have to choose. F17’s screen adjusts with users to ensure enhanced visibility in bright outdoor settings and protects the user’s eyes in dim night-time environments.
A 6.44” Super AMOLED Waterdrop Full screen with bezels measuring only 1.67mm boasts a 90.7% screen to body ratio that offers users an immersive experience for gaming, watching videos, and browsing social media.
At night the F17 also has your eye comfort covered. Moonlight Screen automatically sets your screen’s lowest brightness at 2 nits during 9:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. at night and 10 nits for the rest of the time and knows when and how to protect the user’s eyes in dim environments especially right before going to bed.
Rounding out the state-of-the-art display is OPPO F17’s In-display fingerprint scanner which provides advanced security for faster and more accurate recognition than side or back fingerprint detectors deliver. The fingerprint scanner provides advanced security, it uses a sensor to distinguish between real fingers from a fake finger. This is done by differentiating between the absorption/reflectivity of human skin and characteristics of a non-organic or falsified fingerprint.
Capture the moment with AI-powered Cameras
The OPPO F17 is equipped with cameras powered by AI to really let your images shine by enhancing your natural beauty. The 16MP main camera is enhanced by AI Dazzle Color that beautifies portraits based on the surrounding environment’s brightness and colours through deep learning algorithms. Complementing the 16 MP snapper, are the 119-degree wide-angle 8MP camera, a 2MP monochrome camera and a 2MP retro camera.
The 16MP Front Camera with AI Beautification 2.0 automatically removes blemishes, retains skin texture, and adjusts to the user’s skin colour for clearer and brighter photos. The Front Night Mode enables users to get clear selfies with rich details even in dim environments.
For capturing moments on the go, F17’s comes with a Steady Video Mode that leverages Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) to output stable and clear videos in dynamic scenes.

Notifications are muted, and its network optimizations combined with memory release makes every second count in intense, competitive games.
OPPO’s RAM+ anti-lag and OF2FS optimize speed and performance by efficiently expanding the available memory in the system and improves the storage performance while alleviating lag caused by system ageing. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 platform offers a strong processor that’s well-integrated with the rest of the hardware components.
The Dual Channel Acceleration enables both the Wi-Fi and mobile network to be used at the same time, leading to more stable and smoother online and gaming experiences even while running highly-demanding apps with poor connectivity.
When gamers are immersed in their favourite mobile game and trying to beat their rivals in real-time, the last thing they want is for calls or pop-up messages to get in the way. With Bullet Notifications and Floating Window Reply, OPPO F17 won’t interrupt you in the middle of a game. Instead of popping up as a notification, the text from the message is scrolled across the screen

From gestures that enhance one-handed use and control, grab more content to share, to security features that enable users to share their phone without privacy concerns, ColorOS 7.2 delivers practical features that will continue to delight users.

You can choose to only capture a section of the screen, or if what you need to share is a screenshot that contains more information than visible on the screen, such as a complete conversation in social communication apps. Auto-scrolling screenshot can even handle landscape scrolling screenshots, especially useful when browsing through multiple slides and documents.
If a user wants to let a friend or family member use their phone, Privacy Password can help them keep all of their sensitive information and apps private and secure by setting passwords for their apps and files in the Private Safe, ensuring that even when the mobile phone is unlocked, these apps won’t be accessed, nor can the protected files be viewed by an unauthorized user.
