Chinese manufacturer OPPO has launched yet another budget smartphone in India. The A1k is the most affordable offering from OPPO, given the price is set at ₹8,490. Along with offline stores, the A1k will be available on Amazon, Flipkart, PayTm, Snapdeal, and Tata Cliq. Earlier this week, OPPO A1k was launched in Russia, thus making India the second country to get the pocket-friendly device.
OPPO A1k Specifications
The newest OPPO entrant sports a 6.1 inches IPS HD+ screen layered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. It has an aspect ratio of 19:5:9 with a V-shaped notch housing the front camera. Due to its lean bezels and that tiny notch, users will get a fully immersive display with 87.43% screen-to-body ratio. It runs on ColorOS 6 atop the Android 9.0 Pie. The newest version brings software features like Gesture Navigation, OPPO Cloud Service, and Smart Assistant. Drivers will be able to focus, thanks to Smart Driving features like Driving Mode and Riding Mode.
OPPO A1k is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC coupled with 2GB RAM. You get 32GB built-in storage which is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. Dual SIM support is present with 4G VoLTE. However, there are only 2 cameras on this device – a rear 8MP primary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
To keep the phone running, OPPO has packed a 4000 mAh battery with 10W fast charging. The firm claims that the phone will run for 17 hours when it comes to daily usage. Other connectivity options are the usual WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, micro USB, and a 3.5mm audio jack. The A1k weighs only 170 grams.
There are no launch offers as of now but we expect the company to provide some complimentary goodies soon. A1k is the second smartphone launched after the OPPO A5s. What do you think about this phone? Will you be buying one? Let us know in the comments below.
