Oppo F5, a new selfie-centric smartphone with Full Screen display is now official in India. The smartphone was launched globally last week and it will be available at a starting price of Rs 19,990. The smartphone goes on pre-order starting today and the first sale will be held on November 9.
The Oppo F5 features a new design with a larger display packed in a smaller footprint and screen-to-body ratio of 84 percent. The smartphone features a 6-inch Full HD+ display with a resolution of 2160x1080 pixels and taller 18:9 aspect ratio. The design is reminiscent of Vivo V7+, which was the first selfie-centric smartphone to adopt a bezel-less design. In terms of specifications, the Oppo F5 comes in two variants: 4GB RAM model with 32GB storage and 6GB RAM model with 64GB storage. The smartphone is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 chipset coupled with a Mali-G71 graphics processor.
The Oppo F5's selling point is its 20MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture and larger 1/2.8-inch sensor. The company has also tweaked the camera software with new AI capabilities to highlight features like eyes, nose, jawline or cheekbones in selfies. Oppo F5 users can also shoot selfies in portrait mode that artificially blurs the background. There is also a 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and support for 1080p video recording.
Oppo F5 runs Android 7.1 Nougat skinned with ColorOS 3.2 that the company claims offers 23 percent faster app load times. Xiaomi, another Chinese smartphone maker, is also promising faster app launch times with its new MIUI 9. The F5 houses a 3200mAh battery and uses a microUSB port for charging. Oppo F5 is priced at Rs 19,990 for the 4GB variant and will be available in black and gold colours. The 6GB variant is priced at Rs 24,990 and it will also be available in red colour.
