Launched a little less than a week ago, Oppo's budget offering the Oppo K1 goes on sale for the first time today at 12 pm. The smartphone is a Flipkart exclusive for the time being so that's the only place you can buy the phone from, for now.
The smartphone will be available only after 12 pm, but this isn't really a flash sale, so you should be able to buy the smartphone even later, provided Oppo has enough stock.
The phone is available in India in a single variant, offering 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. As for the launch offers, Oppo K1 will bundle 90 percent buyback value on Flipkart, no cost EMI, and 10 percent discount on Citi Bank credit and debit cards.
Oppo K1 specifications
As far as specifications are concerned, the new Oppo K1 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone sports a waterdrop notch and an in-display fingerprint sensor and comes with facial recognition support. At the back, the Oppo K1 has dual camera arranged horizontally along with an LED flash module located on the right side. The phone flaunts a dual tone gradient back panel with an Oppo branding inscribed at the centre.
Under the hood sits the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, the same chipset found on the Realme 2 Pro. The chipset is paired with Adreno 512 GPU for graphics rendition.
In terms of camera, Oppo K1 features a 16 MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 2 MP secondary camera. Up front, it has a 25 MP camera to carry out the selfie job.
On the software front, it runs the proprietary Color OS 5.2 based Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery. Considering its price and specs, the new Oppo K1 will compete against the likes of Realme 2 Pro, Mi A2, and Honor 8X that fall into a similar price segment. The phone will be available in Astral Blue and Piano Black colour options.
