The Oppo A17K ships with Android 12 operating system out of the box. On top of Android 12, it features Oppo’s own ColorOS 12.1 user interface.

Processor, chipset, GPU, RAM, ROM, and storage
Powering the Oppo A17K is a 2.3GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio G35 processor, which is based on a 12nm manufacturing process. In the memory department, you get 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. While the RAM is decent for this price bracket, some users may find the internal storage slightly limiting. Thankfully, the phone does feature a dedicated microSD card slot for further expansion up to 1TB.
Dual SIM, nano SIM, and dual Standby support, 3G and 4G technology
Like most phones these days, the Oppo A17K offers dual SIM functionality with support for nano SIM cards. You can use two SIMs concurrently in standby mode and set preferred networks for voice calls, messaging, and data services.
It covers most major bands for 3G and 4G networks in Pakistan for connectivity. With 4G LTE support, you can enjoy fast data speeds provided there is good coverage. On the construction side, the A17K has an IPX4 rating meaning it can withstand splashes of water.
Screen and Camera Specifications
The Oppo A17K features a large 6.56-inch IPS LCD panel with an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels. For a budget phone, this display size and resolution combination is quite decent. You get good clarity for watching videos and playing games.
The refresh rate stands at 90Hz enabling smooth scrolling and transitions in the user interface. Overall quality is also enhanced by the Panda Glass protection which makes the screen more durable.
Oppo has always focused heavily on design for its phones and the A17K is no exception. It has a high screen-to-body ratio enabled by the dewdrop notch display.
The 3D curved back cover along with laminated textures and striking colorways like Navy Blue gives it a premium look. Despite the large display, ergonomics have not been compromised thanks to the slim bezels and lightweight construction. Overall, the A17K manages to offer good aesthetics without costing too much.
While not the most powerful processor around, the Helio G35 powering the A17K is no slouch. Combined with 3GB RAM, it can handle most common tasks easily including social media usage, web browsing, streaming shows, and light gaming.
Multitasking is also smooth enough thanks to ColorOS optimizations. So switching between multiple apps doesn’t pose an issue provided you don’t have too many intensive programs running simultaneously. Overall day-to-day performance is more than adequate for this price bracket.
Durable Battery Life
Battery capacity on the Oppo A17K stands at 5,000 mAh which is quite generous. For comparison, even much more expensive phones rarely go beyond 5,000 mAh. With conservative usage, you can expect up to 2 days of runtime on a full charge.
When you do need to top up, there is support for 10W charging. So while not very fast, you can still fully recharge the battery in around 2 hours. For a budget smartphone, most users will be happy with the long endurance the A17K offers.
