The Oppo K10 launched a month ago, a 4G phone powered by a Snapdragon 680. Now the company has shifted its focus towards launching two 5G models – the K10 5G and K10 Pro 5G. The official site in China is already showing off the designs and some key specs, the full reveal will be on April 24.
The Oppo K10 5G has the same overall design as the 4G model, though the camera bump appears more prominent. We’ll get back to the camera as there is no official info about it yet.
The phone will be powered by a MediaTek 8000 Max. The “Max” moniker suggests that this is a custom version of the 8000 chip. We don’t know the extent of the customizations, but the Dimensity 1200-Max added some extra AI features. So, we’re probably looking at 4x Cortex-A78 @ 2.75 GHz + 4x A55 @ 2.0 GHz CPU and a Mali-G610 MC6 GPU.
The GPU and display driver support high refresh rates, which is put to good use as the K10 5G will have a 120 Hz display. The phone has gaming inclinations, so it is equipped with an X-axis linear motor for haptic feedback. Oppo tapped the experts at Razer to tune the feedback and give the on-screen controls a more satisfying click.
120 Hz display on the K10 5G
The Oppo K10 5G will be available in Ice Blue and Dark Night colorways.
The Redmi K10 Pro 5G will be powered by the Snapdragon 888 chipset. Not quite the latest from Qualcomm, but still one of its most powerful chips, making this something of a flagship.
The premium hardware will be supported by a 5,000 mAh battery with 80W SuperVOOC fast charging, a combo that was first used in the Find X5 Pro and is also coming to several other Oppos.
The camera will feature the 50 MP Sony IMX766 sensor (1/1.56”) in the main camera, complete with OIS. It will be joined by an 8 MP ultra wide camera and a 2 MP macro cam. On the front, a 16 MP selfie camera. This sounds (and looks) like a revamped Realme GT2 (which has 65W charging).
The IMX766 sensor has been used in Reno7 models, however, none of them went as high as a Snapdragon 888, so the K10 Pro 5G will sit above them in the line-up. Another related model is the Q5 Pro, also with a 5,000 mAh battery and 80W charging, but will use an older Snapdragon 870 chipset.
The Oppo K10 5G is expected to have a 6.59” LTPS LCD (120 Hz), a 64+8+2 MP rear and 16 MP front cameras and a 5,000 mAh battery (charging rate TBA). The memory configurations we’ve seen so far are 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB storage.
The Oppo K10 Pro 5G should have a 6.62” AMOLED (FHD+) display. Like its sibling, it should come with 8/12 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB storage. We haven’t seen details about the display refresh rate, but we’d be surprised if it is 60 Hz.
More details coming later this week.
