OPPO launches 'Selfie Expert' F1 smartphone in the Philippines

OPPO just launched their first phone of the year in the Philippines, the OPPO F1.

The phone sports an amazing front camera, which is why it is called the “Selfie Expert.” Its mix of hardware and software working together make every selfie brilliant. This was emphasized during the launch, with the event setup designed similar to that of a photography studio as guests were given free use of the F1.

At 8-megapixels, the OPPO F1’s front camera has an 84-degree-wide angle camera lens with f/2.0 aperture, and a 1/4-inch sensor that allows 40% more light to enter the camera than an f/2.4 aperture lens.

It comes with Beauty 3.0+ and eight various filters, which brighten the skin and remove blemishes, and a display that can double as flash in low-light environments. Both the camera’s hardware and software work together as if the OPPO F1 has a built-in styling team that will glam the user up in no time.

The rear camera is equally amazing, with a 13-megapixel sensor, f/2.2 aperture lens, Pure Image 2.0+ features, and a number of customizations to fit the user’s photo needs.

The first in OPPO’s new camera-focused F series, the F1, was designed with the elegant aesthetic and quality that has become the brand’s staple.

Available in two colors, Gold and Rose Gold, the F1’s design offers durability and style. The fine and delicate smoothening of zircon and sand blasting create a back cover that has a velvet-like softness despite being made of metal. The 5-inch HD screen is protected by a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass coating and aluminum housing.

Under the hood is a power-packed octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC with four cores at 1.7GHz and four cores at 1.2GHz, Adreno 204 GPU, and 3GB RAM that runs OPPO’s ColorOS 2.1 as smoothly as possible.
