While this much-awaited android smartphone was set to release on May 2019, due to some derailment in the official release date and the buzz created for the Oppo Reno 10x zoom, this phone couldn’t get better timing to launch on at a perfect time and place. The official Oppo K3 teaser page has been updated by a huge teaser drop by Amazon and they have updated the official release date- 19th July 2019.
Amazon had kept its dumb state till last evening when the e-commerce site made its “notify me” button alive and popping. The first launch of the same was done in China and after receiving an overwhelming response for the same, they are now launching it in India next week. The Key specs for the K3 model include pop-up selfie, fingerprint sensor which is in-built, VOOC 3.0 fast charging support, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, and 256 GB storage.
Amazon will be the first one to drop the mobile in its market, however, it is taking up registrations and launch offers from today. The pricing, availability, discounts, and offers will be launched on 19th July itself and will not be available on any of the sites before that. The listings, however, have been updated, and Amazon has given a sneak peek into the phone’s colours which include purple and blue in gradient finish.

The phone will also encompass a number of host of connectivity options in terms of 3G, 4G, GPS, Wifi Bluetooth capabilities.
The phone will come in 64 GB variant with memory expandable up to 256 GB.

Oppo K3 Camera
Although not much has been revealed on the camera features, the Oppo K3 will support
Rear Camera: 15.93 MP (megapixels)
Image: 4608 x 3456 pixels
Video: 3840 x 2160 pixels
Flash: Dual LED
Front Camera: 15.93 MP (megapixels)
Another key feature of this smartphone is the pop-up selfie camera which is stealing attention wherever it is going. Although, the feature has been implemented by almost each of the up-and-coming smartphones, what they have missed out is a very tiny detail that can benefit in the long run.
The sensors in the pop-up camera will automatically push it down back to its place whenever it detects a free-falling motion so that the selfie feature doesn’t get permanently damaged for your carelessness. Moreover, the pop-up camera will make the most of your display, leaving you no place ( literally ) left to complain about.
Oppo K3 Operating System
The Operating System is supported by Google’s Android 9.0 Pie operating system. This is the latest version of the Android OS. With regular colorOS updates, Oppo K3 is supposed to keep your phone updated up to the newest version.
Oppo K3 Design and Display
The display of this smartphone comes with a big 6.5-inch AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The next-gen in-display fingerprint scanner is the highest security system when it comes to unlocking your phone. The pop-up selfie camera mechanism saves up on the extra edges and the ridges wasted upon the development of a special carving for the front camera to sit upon.
Oppo K3 Performance and Battery Life
Oppo has added a small 3,765mAh battery, which supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging tech. This battery means you can use your phone rigorously by playing games for 8 hours and binging on Netflix for 16 hours. You might still have almost 40 % left after a full charge.
Moreover, the dash charging feature helps you to charge your phone to a complete 100% within an hour only.
