Review: India Today
The Oppo K1 has been launched at a pretty competitive price point of Rs 16,990. This is close to its China price, which is great to see. At this price, the Oppo K1 touts a number of striking features as the phone looks to take on the likes of the Realme 2 Pro and Mi A2 in the online sphere. I spent a brief amount of time with the Oppo K1 during the launch, and here’s what I found.
The Oppo K1 has a familiar look if you are accustomed to past Oppo phones like the Oppo F9 Pro and Oppo A7. Like these phones, the K1 also brings a waterdrop display and a glossy rear panel with horizontal dual cameras and gold accent around. Yet, the K1 feels more premium, even though it’s priced cheaper than the F9 Pro and similar to the A7. This is largely due to a combination of a gorgeous AMOLED display on the front and a glass-like 3D curved back panel. That’s right, the K1 brings an AMOLED display at a price of Rs 16,990, which is pretty exciting to see in this segment.
Review: Times Now
Oppo K1 has been launched in India as the new budget smartphone from the Chinese smartphone maker which also comes with features such as an in-display fingerprint scanner and an AMOLED display. The Oppo K1 will be directly competing with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro which comes with quad cameras, Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, up to 6GB of RAM and more. On the other hand, the Oppo K1 offers a 25-megapixel AI front camera while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor under-the-hood powers it.
Oppo K1 price in India has been set at Rs. 16,990 for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage model. We highly anticipate the smartphone to go head-to-head against Redmi Note 6 Pro which was launched back in November last year. To recall, the Redmi Note 6 Pro price in India starts at Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage variant, and Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. Here we compare the specifications and features of both the devices to see who enjoys an edge over the other.
