As usual, the new model is built atop an SoC from MediaTek, with the MediaTek Helio G35 being the one in question. It has 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage and supports two SIMs.
Oppo is looking to the camera, battery and sleek design to pull in buyers, along with a relatively low price of $259.
The A17 features a 50MP AI main camera and a 5MP front camera.
“The A17 might be a lightweight smartphone, but make no mistake, this device packs a punch," said Oppo Australia managing director Michael Tran.

“With the A17 we’ve prioritised features that Aussies value most, such as a quality camera system, long-lasting battery and sleek design, and brought them to market at a pocket-friendly price point. We’re confident the A17 will impress.”
Oppo claims a full charge of the 5000mAh battery will be sufficient to provide 20 hours of phone calls.
The device will be available for purchase from today at JB Hi-Fi, Big W, Harvey Norman, Officeworks, The Good Guys and Bing Lee.
