Oppo K3's leak marathon concludes today as the phone finally went official. It brings a Snapdragon 710 chipset, 6 GB RAM and an elevating selfie camera for a very attractive price. First flash sale is already taking place on the company website.
The K3 features a 6.5” OLED panel, housing an UD fingerprint scanner. The notch is gone as the selfie camera made its way to the elevating mechanism, which is a standard pop-up, not the shark fin on the Oppo Reno. It is a 16 MP shooter, while the setup on the back is 16 MP + 2 MP. The phone runs ColorOS 6 with Android Pie as a base underneath.
Oppo also brought VOOC 3.0 support for the 3,765 mAh battery. Similarities with the Reno lineup also include the design of the back. The Oppo K3 arrives in Nebula Purple or Secret Black (that is actually Green), but we expect a third Pearl White/Pink variant to appear soon.
There are two memory variants, each with a different price tag. The 6/64 GB option is CNY1,599 ($230/€210), while the 8/128 GB variant is CNY1,899, or about $275/€250. The first 100 people that ordered the device will receive a neat discount of CNY100 (about $15/€13).
