Chinese smartphone maker Oppo has just launched its latest budget smartphone, the Oppo A1k in the Indian market for Rs 8,490. The India launch comes just about a week after Oppo launched the A1k in the Russian market. Taking a look at the specifications of the device, it looks like Oppo is planning to compete with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 7, Realme C1, Realme 3 and more in the budget segment.
The information about the silent launch of the Oppo A1k was initially reported by IndiaShopps. As previously reported, the smartphone comes with a 6.1-inch IPS LCD display along with HD+ resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and the usual water drop-styled notch. Looking inside the device, it is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC along with 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

In terms of connectivity, the Oppo A1k comes with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G VoLTE capable Dual nano-SIM slot and a dedicated microSD card slot.
