Oppo K1 launched in India and it looks ravishing

Oppo has launched the Oppo K1 in India for Rs 16990 and this mobile packs in a punch. It is competitively priced and as of now, this is the cheapest mobile with in-display fingerprint sensor. It has a 6.41 inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a tiny water drop notch on it housing a 25 MP camera. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It looks classy with it gradient color back panel and bezel-less display.

With all these features, the mobile is priced at Rs 16990. A few are complaining on the social media that this mobile does not have USB-C port or the SD 660 is underclocked. But this is Oppo, they are known to launch mobiles are prices not matching the specifications. This is the first mobile from Oppo which has been sensibly priced and the specifications are looking promising.

Honestly I don’t the lack of USB-C port as a disadvantage and most buyers of this mobile will not even feel the difference between 2.2 GHz processor clock speed and a 2.0 GHz clock speed while using the mobile in real life. Its time we stop complaining and appreciate what Oppo has done here. They have turned around and lauched an affordable mobile with insane specifications.

The OPPO K1 will be available on Flipkart from 12th February for INR 16,990, and will come in two color variants- Piano Black and Astral Blue. I am looking forward to get my hands on this mobile and stay tuned for a detailed review.
