Oppo isn’t shy about announcing new phones, what feels like once a week, but the latest smartphone to launch is from the new K-Series phone line: the Oppo K1.
The K1 looks very similar to the Oppo R17 that was announced this past August but the noticeable difference will be the camera layout. The K1 will come with a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340×1080. The screen to body ration will be 91.5% and the aspect ration will be 19.5:9. That’s plenty of screen to provide a small amount of bezel.
The real kicker here is that Oppo is going to be adding in an in-display fingerprint scanner. While Oppo isn’t the first to come out with this new tech, it’s definitely nice to see more and more OEMs picking up this trend and adding it to their devices. Continuing on with the specs, there will be a 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE SoC with either 4/6GB RAM. The internal storage will be 64GB no matter which configuration you choose from.
The dual camera setup on the rear sees the main lens coming in at 16MP and the second lens being 2MP. UHD 4k recording is supported and Oppo is saying that more than 120 difference scenes are there to enhance the quality of each picture. As for the front-facing camera, you’re looking at a whopping 25MP lens. AI Beauty mode included. Battery power is sitting at 3500mAh, which should be more than enough to get you through the day. Android 8.1 Oreo is the chosen OS with Oppo’s Color OS 5.2 skin on top.
You can get the phone for pre-order starting today. The 64/4GB configuration will run you 1599 Yuan, or about $231USD. The 64/6GB version will cost 1799 Yuan, or about $260USD. The phone will go on sale on October 19th. You’ll have the option of choosing between the Mocha Red or Blue Star color.
