Another entry-segment Oppo phone is out. It’s the descendant of the brand’s A-series and succeeds the low-cost OPPO A16k, launched in November 2021. Branded the A17k, the newcomer mimics the design of the recently unveiled A17 from the same catalog. Apart from the rear single-camera unit, both phones are essentially twins.
Featuring metal rims, rounded corners, and thick bezels around the screen, Gold & Navy Blue are two new colors on the OPPO A17k. And as suspected, it has the same faux leather backplate as its counterpart, withstanding finger grease and endowing it with a semi-premium look.

The all-new A-family member carries v-notch bleeding into a 6.56-inch IPS screen. The display maxes out at 720p or HD+ resolution. A higher refresh rate is also lacking here, capping it to 60Hz. The notch on the A17k's forehead hides a 5MP F/2.2 portrait mode selfie shooter.
With the same Helio G35 processor as the A17, the new "K" addition to the OPPO rate list features a 2.3GHz processing speed, a PowerVR GE8320 GPU, and 64GB internal storage. The device comes with 3GB of physical RAM + up to 4GB of virtual RAM.
Furthermore, the device includes a fingerprint scanner and Dirac 3.0 ultra-volume mode speakers. It runs on ColorOS 12.1 based on Android 12 by default and contains a solo 8MP camera setting for photography. To boot up, A17k packs a 5,000mAh battery rated for 10W fast charging.
