2019 will be the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese Horoscope. To celebrate the occasion, Oppo has unveiled special versions of its R17 phones that come in the always lucky red.
It’s coupled with gold highlights, including a stylized pig on the back. This lucky icon is repeated as a pattern interspersed with “auspicious clouds” (which represent the heavens and are a symbol of good luck).
If you love the look, these will be available in China starting 10:00 on December 21. The Oppo R17 Pro New Year Edition will go for CNY 4,300 – and it will be available only in 8/128GB configuration.
The Oppo R17 will be CNY 2,800, the chosen memory configuration is 6/128GB.
Prices are unchanged from the vanilla versions with the same RAM/storage, but the color is unique to this limited edition. The default theme matches the red and gold look of the phone too.
