Oppo has launched in the Philippines a new smartphone, the Oppo F1, which is dubbed as the “Selfie Expert.”
The Oppo F1, which features a 5 inch HD display, is the first camera phone that was initially launched locally. It is part of the F series the company will soon introduce in the country in the near future.
Specs wise, the Oppo F1 features an 8 megapixel front camera which has an 84-degree wide angle camera lens with f/2.0 aperture and a 1/4-inch sensor that allows 40 percent more light to enter the camera.
It comes with Beauty 3.0+ app and 8 various filters to brighten skin and remove blemishes. The display too can double as a flash in low-light environments. The camera’s hardware and software work together as if the smartphone has a built-in styling team that will glam the user up in not time.
This was emphasized in the TV commercial featuring Sarah Geronimo–while taking a selfie she was surrounded by a team of stylists to ensure she always get the perfect selfie shot.
The rear camera of the smartphone is an amazing 13-megapixel snapper, also boasting of f/2.2 aperture lens, Pure Image 2.0 features and a number of customizations.
The Oppo F1 carries much of the design statement of previous Oppo flagship handsets: a back cover made of aluminium alloy polished so finely (40 steps of polishing to make the silky and velvety metal back cover).
Its 5-HD display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and aluminum housing. Under the hood, it boasts of octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC (system on chip) with four cores at 1.7 GHz and four cores at 1.2 GHz, Adreno 204 GPU (graphics), and 3 GB RAM. It is also running the latest Oppo’s ColorOS 2.1.
Oppo officials during the launching of the F1 said the company will also introduce another F1 smartphone upgraded with 5.5-inch HD display and 4 GB or RAM.
By the way, the Oppo F1 is a dual SIM capable smartphone. It will retail for Php 11,990 at Oppo concept stores and authorized dealers nationwide.
Oppo F1 will also be available through Smart and Sun plans. For Smart, it is available at Flexi Plan 1200, while at Sun it is available at Plan 450.
