The all-new Oppo handset called Oppo K1 saw another leak today, on October 08, this time with its images spread over online.

Oppo K1 Images Leaked Online

The Oppo K1 was first spotted on TENAA late last month, marking the beginning of a new Oppo series of smartphones, expected to be its most aggressively priced line-up of premium mid-range handsets. The images and the TENAA listings leak suggest that the handset will come with a light-sensitive in-display fingerprint scanner, since there is no recognizable fingerprint scanner on the display or the back. Also it is clear that the handset will come in two variants, as the leaks showed two model numbers: PBCM30 and PBCT10.

Images also make it quite clear that the handset is coming in at least, one gradient colors: Blue and purple, with the blue on the upper side and the purple beginning from the bottom mingling with the blue to give it a pinkish look at the lower back part of the phone. As we mentioned earlier, the handset is quite possibly the first to launch under a completely new lineup of Oppo handsets, and might be unveiled on October 10, when Oppo is set to hold an exciting launch event.

Oppo K1 Leaked Specifications

The TENAA listing of the Oppo K1 has revealed quite a lot about the handset, and now the leaked images make things clearer. What we know is that the handset will sport a 6.4-inch OLED display with the waterdrop style notch achieving a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, ultra-thin bezels, and a Full HD+ screen resolution. An in-display fingerprint sensor seems likely, although, it is not listed on TENAA. The powerhouse of the handset seems to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, but the clock speeds are shown as 1.95GHz, whereas, the Snapdragon 660 has all eight of its cores clocked at 2.2GHz. However, the smartphone Geekbench multi-core score of the chipset on this device shows over 5400, so it is being speculated that the chipset is Snapdragon 660 after all.

The camera setup includes a 16MP+2MP rear dual camera and a 25MP front shooter, and the battery is a large 3500mAh unit. The handset will come in two variants, as mentioned earlier, with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage in one and 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage in the other.
