“The OPPO K3 could be the brand’s next smartphone in India with full-screen display”
Last year, OPPO launched its first full-screen smartphone in India, the Find X. The handset was followed by similar offerings this year that offer all-screen fascia, including the F11 Pro and Reno series. Now, the Chinese tech giant is all set to launch yet another phone in the country that will have an impressive screen-to-body ratio. While the brand hasn’t officially announced anything, Amazon in India has started teasing the launch of a new phone from OPPO’s stable. The e-tailer hasn’t yet revealed the name of the device, but it seems to be the OPPO K3, which was launched in China in May. It’s a mid-range offering with a pop-up selfie camera and dual rear snappers.
The teaser by Amazon suggests that the upcoming OPPO smartphone will have a screen-to-body ratio of 91.1 percent, which is the same as the OPPO K3. Other things revealed by the teaser include an AMOLED display, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection, and VOOC 3.0 fast charging support, which all are present on the K3. In China, the handset is retailing with a starting price of around Rs 16,000.
