The K3 is a rather new phone which was released in 2019. Like most new handsets, it’s big. Its screen stretches 6.5 inches across. If you have small hands, holding it would be tough.
It looks good. There’s a two-tone gradient on its rear. The mobile was made from plastic that’s glossy. Although the shine makes it look rich, the K3 can be slippery at times.
It is heavy, coming in at 191 grams. It’s not thin either. Its dimensions are 161.2 mm x 76 mm x 9.4 mm. Because of this, it’s brick-like.
Looking across its sides, you’ll find a 3.5 mm headphone jack but there’s no micro SD slot. We’ll touch more on its storage in a bit.
There isn’t a fingerprint sensor on its rear. You’re getting one underneath its screen. Yes, it’s snappy.
On its front, an AMOLED panel was placed. It produces colours that pack a punch. There’s a good screen-to-body ratio. It’s 85.5%, which means there’s barely any bezel action going on. Its display is also pretty sharp. How do you feel about a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution?
What’s more, there is Gorilla Glass 5 on its screen. It can handle quite a beating.
Out of the box, it runs Android 9. It is available through Oppo’s proprietary ColorOS software. Can you upgrade it to Android 10? The answer is yes.
There’s a Snapdragon 710 chip inside of it. It’s not flagship worthy but it’ll handle most of whatever you throw at it. Storage-wise, you can pick the K3 up with 64, 128, or 256 GB of space. In terms of RAM, you are either getting 6 or 8 GB.
As mentioned, there is no micro SD slot. The fact that you can’t expand its storage is disappointing but we’re not too mad as the ROM it comes with is decent.
Being so thick, you’d expect a large battery. Oppo decided to let us down. There is a 3765 mAh unit inside of it. It is nonremovable. The phone fully drains in a little over a day. To charge it, you’ll be making use of a USB-C port. To the entry, a 20 W fast charger would have to be placed. Thanks to VOOC charging, it goes from 0-50% in around half an hour.
Camera-wise, it performs adequately. There is a dual set-up on its rear. It consists of a 16 MP regular lens along with a 2 MP depth one. There’s a bright LED flash. The mid-ranger takes photographs that are always Instagram-ready.
There is no notch on its display. That’s because its selfie camera is motorized. It pops up pretty smoothly. The handset houses a 16 MP wide lens on its face.
Let’s talk about what you came here for:
The Oppo phone costs around Rs.41,000 – 50,000 island-wide.
