Oppo K series smartphones are in the lower mid-range. Several global markets as well as China sell phones under this name.

In China, models differ from those sold overseas. At a competitive price, the Chinese variants offer better features. China’s current K series phone is the Oppo K11. The device was launched in July 2023, and a successor’s chipset name has now leaked.

Oppo K12 will be powered by Qualcomm SM7500 chip, according to Digital Chat Station. It is a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 SoC model number.

The chipset isn’t present in any handset on the market at the moment. We know, however, that the chip is downgraded from the Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 2 it replaces.

Other aspects of the Oppo K12 were not revealed by the tipster. The price-to-performance ratio is fine, but the display is not impressive, he hints in a reply to a comment.

Comparatively, the predecessor Oppo K11 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 782G processor. This phone features a 6.7-inch flat AMOLED display with a resolution of 2412 x 1080 pixels (FHD+) and a refresh rate of 120Hz.

There are three cameras on the back, including a 50MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide unit, and a 2MP macro. It has a 16MP selfie camera on the front.

There are also dual stereo speakers, a MicroSD card slot, a 5,00mAh battery, and a 100W wired charger. Globally, the Oppo K11 is known as the OnePlus Nord CE 3. As a result, the upcoming Oppo K12 could be rebranded as the OnePlus Nord CE 4.
