Oppo has recently announced the two latest entries to its Gen-Z-focused F series. Compared to its predecessor Oppo F15 that was launched in January this year, the Oppo F17 series consists of smartphones with a thinner form factor and with more features.
Design and Display

Both are built around a 6.43-inch AMOLED panel with 1080p+ resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, and 60 Hz refresh rate. No high refresh rate for either model.
Internals and Storage

Both smartphones boot on Color OS 7.2 based on Android 10.
At the back, the toned-down Oppo F17 sports a quad-camera setup with a 16MP 1/3.06” main sensor. This is accompanied by an 8 MP ultrawide plus two 2 MP lenses as macro and depth sensors. The Pro model sports a similar camera configuration, except the main camera is a 48 MP ½ inch sensor with f/1.8 aperture.
