“The OPPO K1 was an aggressively priced product and the OPPO K3 could come with big upgrades in many key areas, suggest leaks”
Smartphone launch season is in full swing as we already witnessed a number of launches within a previous couple of days. But there’s more. Adding to the already long list today is OPPO with its K series. The company has announced that the OPPO K3 will be official on May 23 in China via a teaser on Weibo. Now, the OPPO K3 is a mid-range handset and it’s specifications were revealed last week in a massive leak. OPPO is also introducing a new limited Gundam Edition smartphone with a central punch-hole design in the Reno series soon.
As for the OPPO K3, it will spearhead the K series as OPPO reshuffles its mid-range product line. And from what has leaked, it seems to be a big step-up over the OPPO K1. The teaser poster at least confirms one thing, that the processor will be a Snapdragon 710 SoC as you’ll see a hint in the top-left corner of the poster. As for other specifications, the OPPO K3 features a 6.5-inch display with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, according to a leaked listing on China Telecom.
As for imaging capabilities, the OPPO K3 is expected to have a 16MP primary shooter for the front and rear. The exact battery capacity is not known but the handset is likely to boast of VOOC 3.0 along with a pop-up camera design. OPPO is rumoured to be pricing the K3 very aggressively, tipped to fall between the 1,000 Yuan to 2,000 Yuan bracket. The handset is rumoured to have a 6GB RAM variant and an 8GB version, which will have 128GB of built-in storage if previous leaks are anything to go by. The OPPO K3 will be available in three gradient colours: Nebula Purple, Dark Blue, and Morning White.
