OPPO has officially launched the OPPO K10 5G series, a new line of Android smartphones in its home nation. These are two new mid-range / high-end phones with some assets provided by Sony and Razer, the gaming peripherals giant.
Both models offer an ideal price/quality ratio for consumers that appreciate both the mobile gaming experience and general use of mobile devices. There is so much to learn about the new OPPO K10 5G and OPPO K10 Pro 5G smartphones.
The OPPO K10 5G is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 MAX SoC.
OPPO’s new Android smartphone is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 MAX chipset. It is an enhanced version of the same chipset seen in high-end smartphones such as the Realme GT 3 Neo and Xiaomi Redmi K50.
Additionally, it is the first Android smartphone to include this MediaTek processor, an enhanced version of the previously announced Dimensity 8000 MAX chipset. This decision was made after analysing the performance of both CPU versions, which revealed tangential performance differences and more consistent autonomy increases in this optimised SoC.
For OPPO, MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 MAX processor makes sense in terms of balancing battery life and performance in some of the most demanding tasks a mobile phone can undertake, in this case, games.
The OPPO K10 5G’s connectivity is also superb, boasting the industry’s fastest Wi-Fi 6 and 5G standards for wireless Internet access and data transfer. Additionally, we have LPPDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage to ensure that the phone performs flawlessly.
The OPPO K10 5G features a 6.59-inch Full-HD+ display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.
The OPPO K10 5G smartphone comes with a 6.59-inch diagonal IPS LCD display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. The maximum brightness is 600 nits, which results in a more realistic user experience with more lifelike animations.
Additionally, this smartphone incorporates a 5,000 mAh battery with quick charging at 67 W, OPPO’s standard SuperVOOC. It includes the corresponding rapid charger, as well as other accessories.
Expertise in linear vibration motors and Razer
OPPO enlisted Razer’s assistance in developing a more enjoyable writing experience on its mobile phones. To do this, it used one of the best linear vibration motors available, which is featured in its Find X5 equipment, for example.
On the other hand, Razer was tasked with integrating its mechanical keyboard expertise into OPPO’s software. As a result? Something the maker labelled a “mechanical keyboard experience” on the new smartphone.
The OPPO K10 5G smartphone features a triple rear camera setup of 64MP + 8MP (ultra wide-angle) + 2MP (macro). Additionally, there is a 16 MP camera on the front of the phone for selfies, as well as the punch-hole typography in the screen’s corner.
The OPPO K10 Pro is the greatest smartphone
The OPPO K10 Pro offers all of the advantages of the base model and more. In comparison to the more economical version of this Android smartphone, we have a larger screen, a faster processor, and more powerful cameras.
To begin, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processor, the high-end 2021 chipset, replaces MediaTek’s Dimensity 8000 MAX. Additionally, we have a vapour chamber for maximum heat dissipation and performance optimization.
This OPPO K10 Pro has a larger 6.62-inch diagonal display with Samsung’s AMOLED E4 technology and a high refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Full-HD+ resolution with a maximum of 1300 nits and an average of 500 nits. That is, it is a big variation from the screen found in the base model of the phone.
Samsung’s OLED display and 5000mAh battery operate at 80W.
The OPPO K10 Pro 5G’s power cell has a capacity of 5000mAh and supports fast charging at 80W, as well as the SuperVOOC standard for ultra-quick charging. The kit includes the necessary rapid charger for utilising this charging power.
Nonetheless, the primary enhancement is in the camera. The OPPO K10 Pro 5G features the Sony IMX766 sensor with OIS, which is also found in the top-of-the-line OPPO Find X5 Pro.
Thus, it is a triple camera with a 50 megapixel primary sensor, an 8 megapixel secondary sensor for the ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2 megapixel macro sensor. Additionally, we have a 16 MP front camera for selfies.
It’s also worth noting the phone’s metal and glass structure, with the camera island concealed on the back. It’ll be excellent for holding the phone in panorama mode while we’re playing games, for example.
Both smartphones have the ColorOS 12 user interface and the latest version of Google’s Android operating system, Android 12.
