The Oppo K series is coming back to India!


Oppo is gearing up to bring back the K series devices in India. The teaser of the upcoming phone has gone live on the company’s social media handles. A microsite has been made live on Flipkart for Oppo’s upcoming smartphone confirming that the phone will sell in India through the Flipkart e-commerce platform.

Oppo has been launching K series devices in China for a while now. This includes devices such as the Oppo K9x, K9s, K9 Pro 5G, K7x, and more.

Oppo K Series Phone To Be Announced on March 16 in India

The 12 second teaser video posted on Oppo’s social media handles does not confirm any device specifications, design or model number. It ends with a line ‘Get ready to live without limits on March 16’ hinting at the phone’s launch date on March 16 in the country. However, this could be an announcement date as well.

The Oppo K series is said to be an online focused series that could be priced aggressively. Vivo had recently launched its new online focused mid-budget series phone, Vivo T1 5G in India as well. While Oppo hasn’t confirmed any details on the device specifications or model name, we can speculate that this could be the upcoming Oppo K10.

Oppo has been working on the Oppo K10 as the device was recently spotted on the 3C certification website with the model number PGIM10. The listing revealed that it will support 80W fast charging support. It is confirmed to be powered by the newly announced Mediatek Dimensity 8000 SoC.

That said, it would be interesting to see what Oppo has in store for its audience in India with the return of the K series. The company had launched Oppo K1 and K3 in India a few years ago after which it is now prepping up for the return of the series in the country. We should know more about the device on March 16th.
