Oppo K1 was released merely two weeks ago by the Chinese manufacturer, and it came with a waterdrop notch. The phone kept appearing with a different model name on Geekbench, and finally it was announced today at the Company’s website as Oppo R15x with an increased amount of storage. Let me show you some useful information like the Oppo R15x key features, specification, price and the date it will be released into the market.
Oppo R15x Features
The Oppo R15x and K1 have otherwise similar specs, which includes the UD fingerprint scanner and the selfie camera. The manufacturer is yet to unleash the full specs, but the key features are already made known together with the pricing and release date.
Oppo R15x will come with a 6.4 AMOLED display with what appears to be a Snynaptics optical sensor underneath it. The brand claims the phone has a 91% screen-to-body ratio. The selfie camera us embedded in the notch, with the speaker finding its way in the bezel.
The selfie snapper is 25MP with over 800 detection scenes and AI features. The main camera setup is not revealed on the website, but if we go buy the Oppo K1 specs, we will be looking at a 16MP f/1.7 primary camera with a secondary 2MP for depth-sensing. The Oppo R15x runs on Color OS 5.2, based on Android Oreo. The battery capacity is also yet to be revealed.
The biggest difference between both phones is the upgraded storage. The Oppo R15x comes with a massive 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which is non-expandable. The phone will be available in two gradient colours; Ice and Nebula.
