The OPPO K10 5G will launch in April 2022 with a Dimensity 8000-MAX SoC
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.
