A new OPPO A series phone has gone official, debuting in Malaysia with what we think is a design that’s better than its predecessor’s.

(Update, October 13: The OPPO A17 has been launched alongside the A77s and A17k in the Philippines!)

The just-launched OPPO A17 can now be purchased in our neighboring country for RM599 (roughly P7,677 or $130), looking more premium than its price suggests with a faux leather material and a vertically arranged dual-rear-camera setup.

How is it different from the OPPO A16? Unlike the 2021 model, the OPPO A17 gets a 50-megapixel dual camera on the back; a 5-megapixel selfie camera inside a waterdrop-style notch; a slightly bigger, 6.56-inch HD+ 60Hz screen; and a user interface that is already based on Android 12.

The two smartphones share the following: a MediaTek Helio G35 chipset, a 5,000mAh battery for day-long power, and a fingerprint sensor that doubles as a power key.

It’s likely that the OPPO A17 will be released in the Philippines, too. Its predecessor with the same configuration was launched locally with a P7,999 ($136) price tag, so expect the new model to cost just as much.
