Oppo K1 price has been dropped in India. The Oppo phone was launched back in February last year and is currently available for purchase through Flipkart and offline retail stores in the country. It comes in two distinct colour options, namely Astral Blue and Piano Black, and features a waterdrop-style display notch. What made the Oppo K1 a distinct option in its segment is the presence of a 25-megapixel selfie camera. The smartphone also has dual rear camera setup and includes 64GB of onboard storage. Moreover, the Oppo K1 competes against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy A30 and Nokia 6.1 Plus.
The Oppo K1 price in India has been slashed to Rs. 13,990. This shows a significant drop of Rs. 3,000 when comparing with the launch price that was set at Rs. 16,990 for the single, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage configuration. The smartphone is available with the revised price tag through Flipkart. Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom has also reported that the price is applicable through offline retail stores as well.
