Basic OPPO A1k parameters

With a sublime 6.1-inch LCD waterdrop screen plus 19.5:9 aspect ratio and a 1560×720-pixel resolution, OPPO A1k’s screen design draws its inspiration from a water droplet on the verge of falling.

An earpiece, camera, and light sensor have all been integrated into the waterdrop at the top of the screen.

This makes possible the 87.43% screen-to-body ratio and creates a waterdrop screen that is both beautiful and practical.

From gaming to watching videos to just plain web browsing, users can enjoy an unparalleled and immersive experience.

Above that, A1k employs Corning Gorilla Glass, so the screen is stronger to better resist unexpected drops and scratches.

The OPPO A1k applies a metallic texture design to its back cover. Just like light flowing on a large and flat mirror, the design offers an overall refined and pure finish.

To ensure that the smooth mirror surface rests comfortably in the palm of a hand, OPPO A1k leverages a packaged back cover, with multi-testing bringing you the best radian to look thinner and more pleasing than a normal 2.5D back cover.
