The Chinese company announced on Wednesday that the Diwali version of Oppo F17 Pro is scheduled to be launched in India on Monday, October 19. The new limited edition Oppo phone will be released exclusively for Indian customers. The key specifications of the smartphone may be the same as the regular Oppo F17 Pro launched early last month. However, you can expect some major changes in surface treatment and color to suit the festive season atmosphere.
Oppo said in a media statement: “The Diwali Limited Edition F17 Pro highlights the festive colors and aims to be the perfect companion and conversation starter for Diwali gatherings.” This is not the first time Oppo has launched a special version of its smartphone to accommodate major events. Last month, shortly after the launch of IPL 2020, the company brought the Oppo Reno 4 Pro Galactic blue version with the “MS Dhoni” brand.
