OPPO had recently confirmed that it will be holding a launch event on Oct. 10. However, it hadn’t confirmed on the name of the device that will be announced later this week. Today, the Chinese manufacturer has officially confirmed that it will be debuting the OPPO K1 smartphone today. The launch posters have confirmed some of the features and price range of the smartphone.
According to the TENNA listing, Oppo K1 will sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED full HD+ display with a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor paired with Adreno 512 GPU. The device will come in two RAM variants – 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM paired with 64GB of internal storage. The device will be made available in four colour options – Red, Blue, Silver and Black. All of this will be backed by a 3,500mAh non-removable battery.
Ahead of the formal launch of the Oppo K1, an alleged image showing its frontal panel has been leaked. The image, as shared by Chinese site MyDrivers, shows the waterdrop display notch of the upcoming Oppo smartphone. It also highlights the thin bezels surrounding the display panel. The overall design spotted in the leaked image shows some similarities with the Oppo R17 that was launched in August with a waterdrop notch.
