To celebrate the festival of Diwali, Oppo has officially introduced the Oppo F17 Pro Diwali Edition in India. It is the same phone that was unveiled last month but now comes with a new paint job. It is further bundled with a couple of accessories along with a completely new retail box themed around the festival of lights. This is the second special edition from Oppo as it announced Oppo Find X2 League of Legends Edition as well.
The Oppo F17 Pro Diwali Edition is available in a single 8GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration. It is priced at INR 23,990 that makes it expensive than the standard edition.
