Highlights

  • Oppo F17 Pro is now confirmed to be arriving in India soon.
  • The F17 Pro will be the sleekest phone of 2020, according to Oppo.
  • Oppo F17 Pro is also likely to come with dual-curved display.

Oppo F17 Pro is coming to India soon. The next F-series smartphone will be the thinnest one at 7.8mm -- something that the Chinese company is touting will make F17 Pro the sleekest phone of 2020. Oppo's last F-series smartphone was F15 Pro that launched in India back in January.

The Oppo F15 Pro was one of the good-looking smartphones we had seen back when it was launched. In our review, we were pretty much impressed by how adept the mid-ranger was at handling memory-intensive tasks and clicked some amazing photos. The successor F17 Pro is likely to bring all those qualities along but in a more compact body that will weigh 164 grams.

Detailing the design of the F17 Pro, Oppo shared its horizontal profile revealing the metal rim on it. There is also the square-shaped camera module on it, as visible from sideways. There will at least be two camera sensors on the F17 Pro but I guess there will not be less than four of them. Oppo could use a 64-megapixel sensor that is used on the Reno 4 Pro as the main one while the auxiliary sensors could be for ultrawide, macro, and portrait photography.

"For the first time ever, OPPO F17 Pro will introduce a thin 220 Degree Edge to give users a more comfortable and smoother in-hand feel of the device," Oppo wrote in a press statement, hinting at a curved display. I really liked the dual-curved display on the Reno 4 Pro. In fact, it is one of the lookers we have in the market right now. With F17 Pro, Oppo is bringing that display to even a lower price segment.

Amazon has also listed the Oppo F17 Pro on the website, meaning there is some sort of exclusive availability for the smartphone. Oppo usually sells its smartphones across all online channels but F17 Pro might be an exception. The Amazon listing does not tell anything about the specifications either, so, I guess, we will have to wait for official teasers to reveal what the F17 Pro will come with.
