Oppo on Wednesday announced the launch of its first smartphone of 2019, the K1, in India at an event in New Delhi. The Oppo K1 sports an in-display fingerprint sensor – which we have already seen on plenty of smartphones, however, it is catching up slowly. The smartphone also packs some other features such as a waterdrop notch display, AI-powered face recognition, and Hyper Boost feature that, Oppo claims, can speed up the processor’s load to offer a better gaming experience.
