OPPO may soon launch a new budget-friendly Android smartphone with a waterdrop notch display and a single rear camera. Thanks to a trusted source, we have got our hands on the spec sheet of the upcoming budget smartphone, which will debut as OPPO A1K.
OPPO A1K Key Specifications
The OPPO A1K will run on a MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor. Manufactured on TSMC’s 12nm FinFET process, the Helio P22 includes eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0 GHz. The chipset comes with an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU clocked at 650 MHz. Notably, OPPO has not launched any smartphone powered by the Helio P22 chipset so far. This means the A1K would be the first OPPO smartphone to feature a Helio P22 chip.
Moving on to the memory department, OPPO A1K will be available in a single variant with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. While the spec sheet does not specifically mention the presence of a microSD card slot, we expect the A1K to support further storage expansion up to 256GB. The phone will measure 154.4 x 77.4 x 8.4mm and weigh 165 grams. These dimensions suggest the A1K may feature a 6.0-inch or slightly larger display.
When it comes to battery life, the OPPO A1K is likely to deliver impressive stamina for a budget phone. It will be fueled by a 4000mAh capacity battery. Fast charging is unlikely to be supported, which isn’t a surprise. In terms of software, the OPPO A1K will be running on the Android Pie-based ColorOS 6.0 out of the box. The smartphone will be available in two color options at launch: Red and Black.
Apart from the A1K, OPPO is also expected to launch the A5s very soon. As we reported recently, the smartphone will sport a 6.2-inch HD+ resolution display with a waterdrop notch and run on a Helio P35 octa-core processor.
