This two decided high-end colours of the A1k are selected from hundreds of colour options, continuing OPPO’s reputation of leading design aesthetics in the industry.

Configuration: 4000mAh battery and 32GB ROM

Powered by a 4000mAh large-capacity battery, OPPO A1k also employs APCF material on the screen.

Under the same power dissipation level, the screen gets higher brightness, allowing you to see more clearly while lowering power consumption.

Moreover, thanks to AI algorithm optimization, its MTK6762 CPU enables several applications to run seamlessly at the same time, effectively eliminating freezing and serving multiple user scenarios while reducing power consumption.

All in all, A1k supports up to 17 hours of daily usage, delivering exceptional long battery life.

Besides, A1k features 32GB ROM, making for a more satisfying daily usage experience. As well as providing a smoother user experience, A1k comes with larger storage space so you can save more photos and personal data.

With this combination of 4000mAh battery and 32GB ROM, A1k promises to deliver a better user experience among same price segment smartphones.

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.

What the OPPO A1k camera entails

OPPO A1k’s rear camera uses a 5P lens and multi-frame anti-vibration technology to precisely control the light path, creating a sharper image that offers more stable and smooth video shooting.

Additionally, the front camera, F2.0 aperture and beautification will make selfies more natural.

OPPO A1k also enables excellent Bokeh Effect, the background blur, to help users stand out in their brilliant portrait photos.

Also with HDR technology, every detail is clearer especially in low light and backlight environments, again making your portrait shots stand out even more.

Which operating system does the OPPO A1k use?

The A1k is equipped with ColorOS 6.0, this is OPPO’s latest update to its intuitive operating system.

The new innovative borderless design further increases speed and overall ease of use.

In addition, ColorOS 6.0 has multiple ‘smart’ functions, including OPPO Cloud Service, Notification Bar, Smart Assistant, Riding Mode and Gesture Navigation, allowing users to experience a smarter lifestyle.

Especially worth mentioning is the intelligent Smart Assistant function. Smart Assistant provides users with a one-stop service portal, which directly presents the most important information in the form of a card on the Home screen.
