Design And Display
Oppo A1k design and display is pretty much what you’d expect from the 2019 smartphone. Its 6.1-inch HD+ display uses the trendy 19:9 aspect ratio with a water-drop notch. The Oppo A1k is probably an entry-level phone that’s clothed in a plastic body and metal frame, thereby giving it a 170g weight. Entities like the power button take its place on the right while the volume controllers are on the left. Its design is very essential to save the dewdrop notch. Disappointingly, one of the most notable shortcomings is the absence of the fingerprint scanner for touch ID.
