Oppo F1 is the first member of the new F-series, which will be
focusing on luxurious design and premium camera experience. It is now available
on pre-order in Vietnam, but more markets will be getting it soon.
The Oppo F1 houses within a thin 7.25mm aluminum unibody and
packs a 5" IPS display of 720p resolution protected by a curved Gorilla
Glass 4 piece. The chipset in charge is Snapdragon 616 with an octa-core 1.7GHz
Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 405 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. The extra amount of RAM
will surely make happy the multi-tasking fans.
The rear camera is an ordinary 13MP snapper with f/2.2 lens
and a single-LED flash. The front camera gets the boost - it’s an 8MP selfie
shooter with f/2.0 lens (1/4" sensor) and its software tweaks include
Beautify 3.0 interface, 8 live color filters, and most importantly - it can use
the screen as a flash in low-light conditions.
The Oppo F1 specs sheet also lists 16GB expandable storage,
dual-SIM capabilities with LTE connectivity, and a 2,500 mAh battery. Android
5.1 Lollipop with Color 2.1 launcher run the Oppo F1.
Oppo F1 is available on pre-order in
Vietnam right now for roughly $290 and will ship on January 13 via
thegioididong.com. The first 1,500 people to pre-order the F1 will receive
