On first sight, this awesome phone OPPO K1 looks like a boss in the range of under 20K, as it offers in-display fingerprint which is very new to smartphones nowadays and only flagship killer smartphones like OnePlus 6T, etc. have.
The front of Oppo K1 is really looking great and beautiful as it has 6.4 inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a small waterdrop notch that actually enhances its beauty to a next level.
On the back, Oppo K1 has a beautiful glossy finish with 3D colours. It may also get scratches easily so you guys have to use a proper back cover to protect it.
OPPO K1 has 25 MP front camera that will be really loved by the YouTubers who record their videos from smartphone and TikTok creators.
Oppo K1 rally feels a good and premium device when held in hands and can impress anyone by its glassy look on the back. Its back shines very bright and looks like that it has 3D colours.
Oppo really has done a good job this time to launch OPPO K1 in India with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor as Mediatak is not that much liked by the people in India.
It has Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 Processor with 6GB of RAM and 64GB on internal memory that is expandable upto 256GB by using a MicroSD card.
OPPO K1 has a big highlight feature and that is In-display fingerprint sensor at this cheap price. As in-display fingerprint sensor is only available to flagship devices, OPPO K1 offers you this in a very cheap and suitable price as compared to the pricing of other OPPO devices in India.
OPPO K1 has 16 + 2 MP Rear camera that can easily take good portrait shots and in-depth shots while it has 25 MP front camera that is useful to take awesome selfies by the optimization of Color OS on photos.
After all, it can be said that this device is great to purchase at the price of RS. 16,990.
Design and Build Quality
OPPO K1 has a beautiful glassy back that makes it look very premium when held in hands. Oppo K1 is available in Black and Blue colour mainly as of now in India.
Build quality of Oppo K1 is average, it can’t be said that this device is very durable or can be able to tolerate only low pressure.
At the front, Oppo K1 has a huge 6.4 inch Full HD+ AMLOED Display with a small waterdrop notch.
Hardware and Gaming
Oppo K1 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor with Adreno 512 GPU that is capable of running any high graphics game like PUB-G for Android.
It is preloaded with 16+2 MP Rear camera and 25MP front camera.
Oppo K1 has a great highlighting feature and that is again it’s In-display fingerprint. Although the device supports Face Unlock feature too, but in-display fingerprint sensor is useful at many situations.
Software and OS
Oppo K1 comes with Oppo’s own custom skin Color OS based on Android 8.1 Oreo and company claimed to give Android 9.0 Pie update to its users as soon as possible.
Color OS is optimized to accept the feature of Face unlock too by which you can unlock your device without pressing the screen with your thumb.
In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
Oppo K1 offers in-display fingerprint sensor which is one of the main facts of Oppo’s marketing of this device. But a small problem that I saw or felt on this device that the in-display fingerprint on this device takes some seconds (more than normal) to unlock your device while face unlock feature is more fast than this.
Oppo K1 have a 16+2 MP Camera on the back side that is able to take crisp and sharp pics with portrait mode by which you will get a DSLR photo’s feel by your phone.
On front, Oppo K1 has 25 MP single camera that is also able to take portrait images and that are of course optimized by the software as there is no particular camera lens to give pics a in-depth view.
After seeing all the things and features of OPPO K1, I can surely say you that it is one of the best smartphones present at the price of less than 20K in India.
OPPO K1 has some of the best features like in-display fingerprint sensor, Snapdragon 660 Processor, 25 MP front camera and dual 16+2 MP camera on the back side.
You will not get any problems or log or frame drops while gaming as Snapdragon 660 Processor and 4GB Ram is initial to handle any game very easily.
But at the same time I can say that you guys also have to wait a little for some more time as REDMI NOTE 7 PRO is going to launch in India very soon that offers you 48MP Rear camera, although in-display fingerprint sensor is not available in REDMI NOTE 7 PRO, but it is going to give a tough competition to OPPO K1.
You can purchase OPPO K1 exclusively by Flipkart only as the details provided by OPPO. Maybe later, OPPO K1 will be available in offline stores too.
Now, after reading the whole article, tell me guys whether you liked OPPO K1 or not. And what’s your opinion about it that whether it is going to hit or flop at this price in India.
