“OPPO K3 render shows the handset will look similar to the OPPO Reno phone and have a thick chin”
The OPPO K1 was unveiled back in October, but the company is already back with its successor – the OPPO K3 – within six months. From what we’ve seen in leaked specifications, the handset is set to be a massive upgrade over the previous version and we now also have official renders of the handset. Now an official render posted by OPPO on Weibo confirms some vital features of the upcoming smartphone.
From the official renders, it’s clear that the OPPO K3 will be a premium mid-ranger built in the mould of the Reno series. It also has a pop-up camera but it’s not the shark fin version we saw on the Reno. It is also clear that it will flaunt an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is not unexpected since its predecessor has one too. It’s got the gradient Blue-Purple finish on the rear and a dual camera setup; underneath it is the “Designed by OPPO” label. Yesterday’s teaser revealed that the OPPO K3 will rock a Snapdragon 710 SoC which is an upgrade over the Snapdragon 660 SoC of the OPPO K1. It will also be featuring UFS 2.1 and software such as Game Boost 2.0.
As far as other specifications are concerned, a China Telecom listing a few days ago had a lot of detail. According to that, the display will be 6.5-inch full-HD+ resolution and the rear and front camera are both supposed to be 16MP sensors. While the exact battery size isn’t known, VOOC 3.0 is rumoured to be part of the package. The OPPO K3 launches on May 23rd in China and will likely be available in 6GB/8GB RAM variants along with 128GB of storage.
