Oppo on Tuesday debuted its Realme line-up in India by launching the Oppo Realme 1 smartphone. The budget smartphone is targeted towards the youth of the country and comes under the 'Made in India' initiative.
The Oppo Realme 1 will be available in three RAM/storage variants, namely 3GB/32GB priced at Rs 8,990, a 4GB/64GB variant retailing for Rs 10,9990 and a premium 6GB/128GB option which costs Rs 13,990. The 6GB variant of the smartphone will go on sale at 12pm IST on Amazon on May 25, while the other two variants are expected to be up for retail later this month.
The smartphone features a 6-inch full-HD+ screen with 1080x2160 resolution and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC clocked at 2GHz along with a dual-core AI-specific chip. The Realme1 will include Oppo's proprietary AI Board assistant.
The smartphone features a 13MP rear camera with PDAF and LED flash and an 8MP front camera for selfies. Oppo has included its trademark AI Beauty 2.0 feature in the front camera and claims it is capable of 296-point facial recognition to help with photographs as well as a Face Unlock functionality, which can unlock the phone in 0.1 seconds. But the company has decided to forego the fingerprint sensor for the device. The Realme 1 also supports AR stickers for both the front and rear cameras.
The smartphone will ship with an Indianised ColorOS 5.0 ROM based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Users can also extend the storage via a dedicated microSD card slot. There's a 3,140mAh battery optimised by AI Battery Management feature packed in the fibreglass body.
The device will be available in Diamond Black, Moonlight Silver and Solar Red colour options.
