OPPO has now confirmed a launch for the K10 5G series in China, the vanilla model of which will become the world's first smartphone with the "MAX" version of the Dimensity 8000 processor, whereas its Pro counterpart will emerge with a high-end Snapdragon SoC. The new devices are also now slated to have 120Hz displays, fast charging and even a Razer tie-in.

OPPO has now announced that the K10 series will debut soon in China. A phone of this name has already launched in India, although this was the series' rather underwhelming 4G-only variant. However, the OEM has now made it clear that the incoming devices are the line's full-fat 5G flagships.

They consist of the vanilla K10 5G, to be powered by not just the Dimensity 8000, but a new 8000-MAX version of this chipset. The Pro 5G, on the other hand, is to be a Snapdragon 888-powered device. Both SoCs are now officially slated to drive 120Hz displays, although this spec may be combined with AMOLED in the higher-end version only.

The K10 series is also now destined for flagship-grade 80W SuperVOOC charging, not to mention OPPO's well-favored Sony IMX766 as a 50MP main camera. The OEM has also now teased a "top-end" X-axis linear motor for haptics that are, moreover, tuned by "experts" from Razer so as to reproduce the tactile feedback of a mechanical keyboard on these upcoming K10 screens.

Finally, OPPO has now confirmed that the new K-series units will turn out with this line's distinctive industrial design, which acts to camuflage an increasingly standard-issue camera hump in this case. As with the 4G/LTE-only model, it will be finished in just 2 choices of blue and black. The K10 and K10 Pro 5G will be unveiled in full on April 24, 2022.
