They were recently certified The F11 duo may come with triple cameras as well, but beyond these details not much is known about the devices as of now. The report also does not provide an exact timeline for the launch of the F11 and F11 Pro in India.
Meanwhile, the Oppo R17 Neo is also expected to land in the country soon. The phone was first announced in Japan in October as a lower mid-range version of the Oppo R17 Pro. The R17 Neo sports a 6.41-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM.

The Oppo R17 Neo also comes with dual cameras on the back that includes a 16MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor. Up front, the R17 Neo gets a 25MP selfie snapper.

It houses a 3,600mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 with ColorOS 5.2 on top.
The R17 Neo has a price of JPY 38,988 in Japan, which roughly translates to around Rs 25,000 in India. This is what we expect the India pricing to be considering the R17 slots a little higher at Rs 34,990.
