The Oppo K1 that was launched in China back in October, 2018 is coming to India next week. To be precise, it is launching in India on February 6. The device is one of the smartphones which come under the Rs 20,000 price segment. The 4GB RAM variant of Oppo K1 was launched with a price tag of CNY 1,599 which is Rs 16,900 (approx.).
On the other hand, the 6GB RAM variant comes at a cost of CNY 1,799 that is roughly Rs 19,000. Since there is a high possibility of the smartphone to be under the Rs 20,000 price segment, it is going to give a tough competition to phones within this budget from Vivo and Nokia.
