Oppo of China has added one more selfie-focussed smrtphone to its portfolio and has launched in India Oppo F1 Plus, which is an enhanced version of highly successful F1 which was introduced in India in the month of January this year. The USP of Oppo F1 Plus is its world leading 16MP front camera. This phone is priced Rs.26,990 and will be available in Gold and Rose Gold colors.
The superlative feature of F1 Plus is its 16MP front-facing Hi-Light Camera and this feature will be loved by selfie lovers who want to capture clear and vivid selfies in any lighting condition. This selfie camera incorporates Selfie Panorama feature, Beautify 4.0 and the front-facing Screen Flash for clicking perfect shots.
According to Oppo, the F1 Plus’s unique strength in front-facing camera lies in its special sensor, which arranges pixels in a unique pattern designed to maximize image quality, resulting in photos that are clear, bright and strikingly rich in color. This camera has a large f/2.0 aperture that increases the amount of light that enters the camera and ISOCELL technology works to ensure that all of it hits the sensor just where it should. OPPO has also upgraded the F1 Plus’s photo-processing algorithms. After six months of testing and 150 iterations, Beautify 4.0 is optimized to capture selfies with bright, clear skin, and beautifully defined facial contours, as claimed by the company.
The F1 Plus also is equipped with a 13MP rear camera.
The Oppo F1 Plus also boasts of other powerful hardware features. The F1 Plus has all-metal unibody and amazingly light to carry. It has dimensions of 151.8×74.3×6.6mm and weights only 145 grams.
The F1 Plus sports a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 4th Generation Gorilla Glass for protection against scratches. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 2.0GHz 64-bit Octa-core processor which comes equipped with the world’s first TrueBright Image Signal Processor (ISP) engine, for enhanced color resolution and detail. This phone comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage which is expandable to 128GB via microSD card. This is Dual SIM device.
The OPPO F1 Plus is packed with a 2,850 mAh lithium polymer battery, allowing for 14 hours and 5 minutes of constant heavy use, as claimed by the company. This phone also incorporates VOOC Flash Charge technology which reaches a 75% charge after just half an hour of flash charging. According to Oppo, VOOC technology keeps the phone’s temperature low during charging, protecting longevity of the battery and phone internals, and even allowing the user to simultaneously use their phone while they fast-charge, a function that no competitor can offer.
The other highlights of F1 Plus is its front-facing fingerprint reader given on the home button just like Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge phones. The F1 fingerprint sensor is capable of recognizing a fingerprint to unlock the phone in only 0.2 seconds.
The F1 Plus also offers connectivity options of 4G with VoLTE support, 3G, Wi-Fi, hybrid SIM, Bluetooth, GPS/ A-GPS, and Micro-USB. This phone runs on Oppo’s ColorOS 3.0 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
According to Mr Sky Li, OPPO Global VP, MD of International Mobile Business and President of OPPO India, “Today, we are very excited to launch the second device of our photography-focused F series in India after our Selfie Expert F1, which created great market acceptance with demands pouring in from every corner of the country.
