Lately, Oppo is increasingly being known for its innovative solutions. After launching unique devices like the bezel-less Find X, the Chinese company is now said to be gearing up to launch a new software technology.
If a teaser is to be believed, Oppo will be introducing a new software technology, dubbed ‘Hyper Boost’, to accelerate the overall performance on its smartphones. This tech will be unveiled on October 11. With Hyper Boost, Oppo is preparing to take the competition directly to Huawei, which has recently introduced its GPU Turbo tech to optimize graphics performance on its smartphones. As you can see in the poster, Oppo’s Hyper Boost Tech Meeting will be held in Shanghai. The poster also comes with the caption – “Towards an era of acceleration”.
There aren’t many details on how exactly Oppo’s Hyper Boost will improve the performance on its smartphones. It will be interesting to see how Oppo implements this software across its smartphone range that are powered by both Qualcomm, and MediaTek chipsets.
While there is no official word, the first Oppo device to integrate this Hyper Boost tech could be much-rumored Oppo K1 that is scheduled to be launched a day before (October 10). Initially, this tech could be limited to Oppo’s smartphones that are available in China, and later will be rolled out to models available globally.
Just yesterday, the first alleged hands-on photo of the Oppo K1 surfaced online. The photo hinted at a device with very thin bezels on the side, and a waterdrop notch at the top. Based on the leaks, the Oppo K1 is expected to feature a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, 4GB/6GB RAM, and 64GB/128GB storage.

For photography, the Oppo K1 could be equipped with a dual-camera setup (16-megapixel+2-megapixel) at the back, and a 25-megapixel front camera for selfies. Some rumors also hint at an in-display fingerprint sensor on the Oppo K1. The device will be backed by a 3,500mAh battery, and will run Android 8.1 Oreo-based Color OS.
