Oppo is a Chinese manufacturer that unfortunately does not show much of a presence in this country. However, the BBK subsidiary, whose group also includes companies such as Vivo and OnePlus, is always up to date. The new K1 has an in-display fingerprint sensor, but it’s still pretty cheap. The Oppo K1 does not appear officially in Germany, but it is always worth a look across national borders. For the equivalent of $ 230 you get a 6.4-inch screen with FullHD + resolution. It is of course an OLED screen, as LCDs don’t let in enough light to read your fingerprint.

Qualcomm instead of MediaTek, hooray

Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. Oppo used MediaTek for the F9, so it was the right decision. There is also 4 to 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. On the front, we expect a 25 MP selfie camera in the little waterdrop notch, a 16 and 2 MP setting is on the back. The battery has a capacity of 3500 mAh, but unfortunately it is still charged via Micro-USB instead of USB-C.

The cheapest version of the two models costs around 200 euros. That’s well below the next most expensive option with an in-screen finger scanner, the Meizu 16 currently hovering around $ 400. Personally, I get along with the scanner on the home button of my Huawei P20 Pro, But would the extra charge for this feature be worth it? [via]
