Oppo has silently listed its latest R15x smartphone in China on its e-commerce platform. The Oppo R15x is pretty much a replica of the newly launched Oppo K1 with the same design that includes an in-display fingerprint sensor, a waterdrop-style notch, a vertical dual rear camera setup, and a gradient colour design. Specifications that match include a Snapdragon 660 SoC, a 25-megapixel selfie camera, and the same 16+2-megapixel rear camera combo. However, it offers double the inbuilt storage at 128GB and comes only in one 6GB RAM option. The Oppo R15x might just be on its way to becoming the global variant of the Oppo K1. Let’s get into the details of the Oppo R15x.
Oppo R15x specifications
The Oppo device arrives with a 6.4-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The display on the front will also host the in-display fingerprint sensor.
The R15x is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 660 mobile platform with an Adreno 512 GPU, 6GB RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo’s ColourOS 5.2 on top.
