In the midst of all the flagship and mid-range smartphone launches, Oppo has silently brought its A1k smartphone in India. In the past few days, we saw few leaks of the smartphone on the internet and now, without making much noise, the company has now finally launched the Oppo A1k in the country.
Oppo A1k is an entry-level smartphone and it comes with features like a big screen with Gorilla Glass protection, Helio P22 SoC and 2GB of RAM. It has also been priced competitively and it will compete against the likes of Redmi 7, Redmi Y3, Realme C2, Samsung Galaxy M10 to name a few. Here are all the details of the Oppo A1k smartphone that you should know about:
Oppo A1k price and availability
The Oppo A1k is priced at Rs 8,490 for the 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variant. The newly launched Oppo A1k can be purchased from major offline stores throughout the country but its online availability is currently not known. It comes in two colour options – Red and Black.
Oppo A1k specifications and features
Oppo A1k sports a 6.1-inch IPS LCD HD+ (1560 x 720 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top. The screen of the Oppo A1k has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and features a waterdrop-shaped notch on its screen. Powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 SoC, the handset comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The Oppo A1k packs a 4,000mAh battery with 2X fast charge support but it does not have a fingerprint scanner.
On the camera front, the Oppo A1k comes with a single rear camera that has an 8MP sensor. While the front of the device houses a 5MP selfie camera for clicking selfies and making video calls.
The Oppo A1k runs Android 9 Pie skinned with ColorOS 6.0 out of the box. And although it does not come with a fingerprint scanner it does support face unlock. The device supports dual-SIM cards and it comes with features such as 4GB VoLTE, GPS, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.2. The Oppo A1k also features all the other regular sensors.
Although Oppo has brought out a new budget segment device, it will also face heavy competition from other smartphone makers. But as it sports only 2GB RAM which feels a little too old than what is trending in the market it will make the sales of the smartphone hard.
