OPPO’s K1 smartphone will soon launch in India, further spreading the reach of in-display fingerprint sensor technology after the device’s launch in China last autumn.
OPPO K1 In-Display Fingerprint Scanner
One of the key selling points of the OPPO K1 is the in-display fingerprint scanner, which the company has been teasing on Twitter and other social networks.
The OPPO K1 is expected to bring the innovative in-display fingerprint scanner to the masses. For the first time, buyers in the sub Rs 20,000 segment will get to experience this amazing technology that is usually reserved for flagship phones selling for double the price. And it may usher in a new era of fingerprint scanners in the mid-range segment.
