Oppo K1 Teased With In-Display Fingerprint Reader

Oppo has announced its second phone with an under-display fingerprint sensor, the K1. A mid-range device with some pretty cool features.

The company seems to be learning from Vivo’s approach in the market, bringing seemingly expensive hardware that is usually reserved for flagships to the budget market.

Oppo has already confirmed that it would be announcing some devices at its October 10 event, but it didn’t reveal any names. Now, the Chinese smartphone giant has uploaded a poster on its social media page, announcing the launch date, price, and some features of Oppo K1.

The two posters are shown below:

As seen in the posters above, Oppo revealed some of the details about the K1. The phone is going to come with a waterdrop notch, and according to reports, its single camera on the front can shoot 25 MP photos, same as the Oppo F9. The two rear cameras on the rear are expected to be 16 MP and 2 MP.

For the design, the company has used a similar gradient, shiny glass-finish, with color options of red-blue, silver-green, and blue-black.
