OPPO has also launched a vanilla K10 5G smartphone alongside the OPPO K10 Pro 5G in China. It will be a successor to the OPPO K9. However, it loses the Super AMOLED display in favour of a high refresh rate LCD. Additionally, the OPPO K10 5G will come with a much more powerful MediaTek Dimensity processor when compared to the mid-range Snapdragon 768G chipset of its predecessor.
Let’s have a look at all the features the OPPO K10 5G brings to the table.
OPPO K10 5G: Features, Specifications
The OPPO K10 5G sports a 6.59-inch Full HD+ LCD with a 120Hz screen refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and a peak brightness of 600 nits. The handset is powered by MediaTek’s recently-introduced Dimensity 8000-Max chipset. It is built on TSMC’s 5nm fabrication process and is an octa-core CPU with four Cortex A78 high-performance cores and four Cortex A55 efficiency cores. The chipset also packs in an ARM Mali-G610 GPU and a MediaTek 580 APU. Performance-wise, it falls slightly behind the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC. However, it has the potential to beat Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 chipset in real life, as it managed to outscore it in synthetic benchmarks. OPPO has also employed a Diamond VC Liquid Cooling tech to enable it to sustain high frame rates in games for an extended period of time.
