Both the devices have a similar display with identical specifications which means there's no winner in this round. But if you want a full view display without any intrusions, the Redmi K20 is for you because it has a pop-up selfie camera and the Oppo F17 Pro has a punch hole which might be an intrusion for some people.
The Oppo F17 Pro is powered by the MediaTek Helio P95 octa-core chipset. It is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of Storage which is also expandable.
The Redmi K20 runs on Snapdragon 730 paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of Storage.

Oppo F17 Pro runs on Color OS 7.2 based on Android 10. On the other hand, Redmi K20 runs on MIUI 12 based on Android 10.
There is no winner in this segment as it is a personal preference as to which software you would like because both of these are heavily skinned.
The Redmi K20 has a 4000mAh battery with 18W fast charge support, and the Oppo F17 Pro has a 4015mAh battery with VOOC 4.0 30W fast charging.
