Oppo A1 will get a cheaper sibling
The MediaTek Helio P23-powered Oppo A1 will soon get a cheaper sibling with lower specs known as the A1K. Insiders familiar with the matter revealed that the upcoming handset will feature a waterdrop display, a single-sensor main camera, and will use the MediaTek Helio P22 processor. Unfortunately, the official confirmation has yet to arrive.

Low-end smartphones will soon feature at least 3 GB of memory, so it is quite surprising to hear that Oppo is ready to launch a sibling of the Oppo A1 smartphone that features only 2 GB of memory. However, the upcoming A1K still has to be announced by this popular Chinese brand, so some of the leaked specs might turn out to be quite different.

According to an exclusive report by MySmartPrice News, insiders familiar with Oppo's plans have just revealed that the upcoming A1K has the following highlights: MediaTek Helio P22 processor (this would be the first time that Oppo uses this chip for a smartphone), 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, waterdrop notch display, single rear camera, a generous 4,000 mAh battery, and Google Android with ColorOS 6.0 on top.

In addition to the above, we should also mention that the Oppo A1K will be available in red and black. The handset allegedly weighs 0.36 pounds and measures 6.08 x 3.05 x 0.33 inches.

We have no idea when and where Oppo will launch the A1K, but it is rather safe to assume that this handset will hit the Chinese market in the coming weeks. Would you still buy a phone with 2 GB of memory these days? What is the price tag that Oppo should stick on the A1K to make it attractive? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
