OPPO A1k: an entry level smartphone with large battery and little RAM

ByLinky Johnson 2019-04-30 296

Another day, another mobile on the way between the entry range and the average around 100 euros and with Helio P22. If yesterday it was the turn of the LG X4 2019 and Realme C2, today it is OPPO's turn with the new OPPO A1k, launched for the moment in Russia.

OPPO A1k 


The OPPO A family grows, and the OPPO A1 introduced last year receives a few changes: the fingerprint reader disappears and in return the screen grows with a notch in the form of a drop and a screen/body percentage of 87.47%.

A small notch

Visually the OPPO A1k is not much different from the new batch of mid-range mobiles we are seeing during the year. In a certain way the notch in the form of a drop has ended up becoming standardized and the previous image could well belong to 20 models being almost impossible to distinguish them.


OPPO A1k small notch  


More specifically, this is a 6.1-inch screen with HD+ resolution (1560 x 720) and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. According to OPPO measurements, it occupies 87.47% of the front end, which is not bad for a terminal in its price range. As is customary in even the most expensive terminals, it is accompanied by a more pronounced chin than the rest of the edges.


This notch hides a modest 5 megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture, as well as the headphone socket and the lighting sensor, which "could be blocked if an opaque film is used", according to the specification sheet. The rear camera is 8 megapixels with f/2.2 aperture.


A large battery

This OPPO A1k is where the priority has been given to the screen and the battery, and so much so that in the year of evolution since OPPO A1, the fingerprint reader has disappeared. The battery has grown to 4,000 mAh.


OPPO A1k 4.000 mAh  


With Helium P22 heart, those 4.000 mAh should give a lot of itself with Android 9 Foot (with Color OS 6.0 on top), although it comes with only 2 GB of RAM, a little bit right now. The internal storage in this case is 32 GB.


OPPO A1k price

For now OPPO A1k has been announced in Russia jointly with OPPO A5s (also known as OPPO AX5s). It is available in black and red, in a single version with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. We do not know for the moment its price in euros, but in Russia it will cost 9990 rubles (139 euros at the exchange rate) and in India 7,990 rupees (103 euros at the exchange rate), so it will probably be in the range of one hundred and little euros.
