Although OPPO has yet to officially unveil first device of its new sub-brand Reamle, known as OPPO Realme 1, in India on May 15, but an Indian publication has already published an article focusing the unboxing and prime features of the upcoming device, few days ahead of its official launch.

Earlier reports suggested that the OPPO Realme 1 will actually be a rebranded variant of the OPPO A3 that was made official in China a month ago. However, newer reports reveal that there will nothing be similar with the OPPO A3.

Hands-on Images of OPPO Realme 1

The recent images make it clear that the Realme 1 will certainly feature a display with regular 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution on the front. On the other hand, Amazon India has already teased the rear side of Realme 1 Diamond Black edition that features a metallic rear with multiple polygonal designs on it.

One of the recent images showcases the OPPO Realme 1’s box package that includes charger, documentation, SIM ejector, micro USB cable and a plastic case. Moreover, the bottom edge of the phone will feature an external speaker, a microUSB 2.0 port and a 3.5mm audio jack.

As far as internals of the OPPO Realme 1 are concerned, the article reveals that the device will be preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, overlaid with Color OS 5.0. OPPO has embedded a MediaTek MT6771 Helio P60 chipset under the hood along with a dedicated AI processing unit to power up the device.

The Realme 1 has a native storage of 128GB that is well supported by a huge 6GB of RAM. There is also a dedicated microSD card slot for additional storage, if the native memory falls short of customers’ use. The handset is fueled by a 3,410mAh battery which is negligibly bigger than 3,400mAh battery of OPPO A3.

On the photography department, the Realme 1 features a 13MP rear camera – marginally lower than 16MP shooter on OPPO A3. However, an 8MP selfie shooter is there on the front for making video calls and snapping selfies. Whereas, teasers available on Amazon India reveal that the OPPO Realme 1 will offer couple of AI features such as AI Selfie and AI Battery Management.

Pricing and Availability

The Realme 1 will be exclusively launched in India through Amazon India on May 15th with an expected price tag of INR 13,000 (~$193, PKR 22,300).
