In what seems to have become an annual tradition that started with the OPPO R9s, OPPO has announced it will unveil a New Year’s edition of the OPPO R17 duo on December 17.

The New Year Edition models of the R-series are known for their red color and the poster for the launch hints at that being the case for the OPPO R17 and OPPO R17 Pro too. The specs will remain the same as that of the regular variants but the packaging should be different.
