Oppo A17k is a downgraded version of the Oppo A17. The front camera features a single, 5 MP, f/2.2 (wide) camera for selfies and video chats. The front camera’s power is glaringly low, even though it can capture 1080p@30fps.
At the back, capture moments and life experiences using a massive single, 8 MP, f/2.0, (wide), AF. With capabilities of 1080p@30fps, you will be able to capture moments in still and motion, but a lot is left to be desired. Supported by LED flash and panorama, the 8MP lens needs to catch up to the best standards in the modern-day mobile world of cameras.
Connectivity and Sensors
Oppo A17 is a 4G-network-enabled device. Enjoy fast upload and download speeds, depending on the signal strength of your network provider. For convenience, Oppo installed several sensors on its handset: Fingerprint (side-mounted), accelerometer, Proximity, and Compass
