Oppo is going to expand their smartphone offering in India by adding Oppo K1 in their offering. The device will be launched on February 6. The device is going to be Flipkart Exclusive.
Flipkart has confirmed the launch through a dedicated microsite just days after posting a teaser. The Oppo K1 with an in-display fingerprint sensor was unveiled in China back in October last year. It also features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood, along with up to 6GB RAM. Oppo has also provided a 25-megapixel selfie camera to make the K1 capable enough to compete against other phones in the sub-Rs. 20,000 price segment. The phone is likely to start at Rs. 17,000 in the country.
The dedicated microsite by Flipkart shows that the Oppo K1 will formally arrive in India next week. The launch is taking place at 12pm (Noon) IST on February 6. Previously, the online marketplace hinted at the arrival of the Oppo K1 by showcasing its in-display fingerprint sensor technology and underlining an “unbelievable price”.

Further, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, clocked up to 2.2GHz, coupled with 4GB RAM and 6GB RAM options.
In terms of optics, the OppoK1 sports a dual camera setup at the back with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor as well as an LED flash. For selfies and video chat, there is a 25-megapixel camera sensor at the front.
