Oppo Realme 1 Specifications
The Realme 1 is the powerful smartphone in its price range, beating the likes of Redmi Note 5, Honor 9 Lite and others because it’s powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 SoC. The smartphone boasts a 6-inch Full HD+ display on the front, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. As mentioned, the phone comes with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There’s a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 128GB.
To achieve the lower price tag, Oppo has sacrificed some of the key features such as the metallic build and fingerprint scanner. The phone is constructed entirely out of plastic and weighs 155 grams. This dual 4G smartphone also offers Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, GPS and a Micro USB port for data transfer & charging. The Realme 1 comes with custom skin ColorOS layered on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. Instead of the fingerprint scanner, the Realme 1 comes with Face Unlock option which is the fastest one in this price range.
Other features in the smartphone include a 13MP rear camera, 8MP selfie camera and a 3410mAh battery.
