Oppo A1K: Jewel in the crown

May 13 2019: When we say jewel in the crown, we mean it literally. At the back panel of the Oppo A1K, the camera and flash module is accentuated by a golden ring (in the black variant) or a silver ring (in the red variant), making it look like a bejeweled crown at the top left of the device.

The same golden or silver hues are used for the brand logo as well, making the device look classy. The 6.1 inches device comes with a so- called  "waterdrop"  screen tastefully flowing as part of the overall front design.  The A1K is light and cozy to hold, in spite of  a hefty  4000 mAh battery. The device comes  with 8 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras. The rear camera has anti-vibration technology while the selfie camera churns out smooth bokehs.

Powered by the MediaTek 6762 CPU, the Oppo UI -- Color OS -- gives you an option to access the Oppo Cloud service, as well as the smart assistant that lets you toggle between modes such as riding and driving. Overall, the A1K is a good package  with minimalist but sophisticated design as well as an impressive mix of specs. At Rs. 8490 (2 GB + 32 GB), Oppo has hit a sixer this time around.
