Oppo K1 - the most affordable in-display fingerprint sensor bearing smartphone in India - will go on sale in India for the first time today. Launched in India earlier this month, the Oppo K1 will be up for grabs exclusively from Flipkart at 12pm (Noon) IST today. The Oppo offering will be available in a choice of Astral Blue and Piano Black colour options. The Oppo K1 apart from its fingerprint sensor also sport a 25-megapixel selfie camera as its biggest USPs, while the company is also touting the presence of a large 6.4-inch AMOLED display.
The Oppo K1 (Review) price in India is at Rs. 16,990 in India. Flipkart is offering no-cost EMI offers for the Oppo K1 for a duration of 3 or 6 months and is also bundling the Complete Mobile Protection plan at Rs. 499. But the most notable offer comes in the form of a buyback benefit, as part of which, the customers can avail a 90 per cent buyback value on the Oppo K1, worth Rs. 15,300. The buyback plan can be purchased for just Re. 1, however, it can only be availed if customers upgrade to another Oppo smartphone purchased from Flipkart within 8 months of buying the Oppo K1.
Flipkart is also offering an additional 10 percent discount on the smartphone if the payment is done using a Citi Bank debit or credit card. Additionally, one can also get the benefit of a 5 percent discount for payments done using an Axis Bank Buzz credit card.
The Oppo K1's USP is definitely the in-display fingerprint sensor, but the rest of its specifications are impressive too given its price point. The dual-SIM (Nano) smartphone packs a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and flaunts a dewdrop notch. It is powered by the Snapdragon 660 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, which can further be expanded via a microSD card (up to 256GB).
The Oppo K1 comes with a dual rear camera setup, which consists of a 16-megapixel primary camera and a secondary 2-megapixel secondary camera. There is a 25-megapixel front camera as well to take care of selfies. The Oppo smartphone draws power from a 3,600mAh battery and runs ColorOS 5.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
