In terms of specs, the newly announced OPPO R17 Neo is quite similar to the recently unveiled OPPO K1 and OPPO R15X smartphones that are nothing but toned-down version of the OPPO R17 smartphone. The smartphone looks marvelous thanks to its Blue and Red color gradient appeal.

The Snapdragon 660 chipset and 4 GB of RAM are present under the hood of the device. The handset includes 3,600mAh battery. When it comes to storage, it offers an internal storage of 128 GB. There is a microSD card slot for additional storage.
The back panel of the phone is equipped with a horizontally aligned 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel dual camera setup. A 25-megapixel selfie shooter is available inside the notch of the smartphone. The phone is loaded with ColorOS 5.2 flavored Android 8.1 Oreo.
The OPPO R17 Neo is priced at JPY 38,988 (~$345). Users can also purchase it on contract by paying JPY 3,218 (~$28) a month. There is no confirmation on the availability of the R17 Neo outside of Japan.
