“The OPPO K1 is expected to be an affordable in-display fingerprint sensor smartphone in India”
After a teaser and exclusive report from 91mobiles, Flipkart has confirmed that OPPO’s upcoming smartphone is indeed the OPPO K1. The e-commerce site has also revealed (via listing) that February 6th is the launch date of the handset in India. The OPPO K1 is expected to be an affordable in-display fingerprint sensor smartphone as it’s marketed as ‘latest tech at an unbelievable price’.
Since the smartphone has already been launched in China, the only aspect missing here is its India price. According to our sources, the OPPO K1 will be released under Rs 20,000 in the country. The phone could come in two gradient colour options: Gogh Blue and Mocha Red. The handset will most likely go for sale only on Walmart-backed Flipkart across the country.
