Oppo K1 gets new Ink Black color variant in China, sale starts from 12th December
A couple of months ago, Oppo launched its mid-range offering — Oppo K1 in China in two color options — Van Gogh Blue and Mocha Red. Later, the Chinese company introduced Silver Green color option. Now, Oppo has launched yet another color variant of the Oppo K1 in China — Ink Black.
While the Silver Green, Van Gogh Blue, and Mocha Red variants come with gradient color, the Ink Black doesn’t have a gradient color but comes with a glossy finish. It will go on sale in China from 12th December. The 4GB RAM model is priced at 1,599 yuan ($233) while the 6GB RAM model costs 1,799 yuan, roughly $262.
Apart from the change in color, all the phone’s specifications remain the same. It features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution and 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. The display is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass on top.
Under the hood, Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor is powering the device, along with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Both models come with 64GB of internal storage and also comes with a microSD card slot that enables you to further expand the phone’s storage capacity.
As for the camera configuration, there’s a dual camera setup on the back, with camera sensors stacked horizontally in the top-left corner along with an LED flash. It consists of a 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor with AI-based features to enhance the camera performance.
On the front side, the phone comes equipped with a 25-megapixel shooter for taking selfies and video calling. The company has tried to include all the trendy features in the phone. As a result, along with the smaller waterdrop notch, you also get an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box with the company’s own ColorOS 5.2 on top. Connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi i 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and GLONASS. It is powered by a 3,500mAh battery that supports Super VOOC fast charging technology.
