Chinese smartphone brand OPPO launched the R17 and R17 Pro in India last December which both come with in-display fingerprint scanners. Well today, OPPO has launched one more smartphone in India that comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner – the OPPO K1.
The OPPO K1 was first launched in China last year in October. It is powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC which is paired with 4 or 6 GB RAM. However, in India, OPPO only launched the 4 GB RAM variant. The smartphone runs ColorOS 5.2 based on Android Oreo and has 64 GB of internal storage.
On the front, the OPPO K1 has a 6.4-inch water-drop shape notch display that has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. The K1 achieves an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 91% because of this display.
At the back, the K1 has a 3D cover along with dual cameras – 16 MP and 2 MP – placed horizontally in the top-left corner. For selfies and video calls, you get a 25 MP camera on the front that’s placed inside the notch. You don’t get a fingerprint scanner on the back of the K1 as it comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner that lets you unlock the smartphone by placing your finger on a designated area of the screen.
Lastly, the OPPO K1 comes with a 3600 mAh battery which is 100 mAh larger than the K1 sold in China.
