OPPO just launched the new F1s smartphone. The OPPO F1s claims to bring the selfie game to the next level without going beyond the mid-end price point.
With the competition in the smartphone industry even tougher than before, as phones with high-spec offerings enter the scene left and right, usually it all boils down to the cost of the phone. The original OPPO F1 came straight out of the company’s mid-end range with impressive features especially the quality of its selfie camera and camera software.
After the successful release of the OPPO F1 and F1 Plus comes the F1s. This smartphone arrives with stronger firepower without the jacked up price.
The F1s continues to have the same premium looks of its predecessors. It is still thin, has smooth rounded bezels, and prominent white colorway. Yet, it offers a bit more than those.
The F1s has a 5.5-inch screen, a generous real estate for multimedia use.
It has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera to take high-quality selfies. With this resolution, it can even take amazing group selfies. At the back, it has a 13-megapixel main camera.
Aside from having impressive camera hardware, the F1s has OPPO’s Beautify 4.0 software that lets users edit photos on the fly.
Under the hood, the phone is powered by a MT6750 octa-core processor with up to 3GB of RAM. It still runs with OPPO’s proprietary Android skin, the ColorOS.
It is packed with a 3075mAh non-removable battery. This battery capacity should be enough to last a day of casual gaming and browsing on social media on a single charge.
OPPO Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said at the launch event, “It’s amazing how the F1s lets you capture selfies the way you want them to look. We wanted to offer a phone that gives selfie lovers a satisfying photo experience, and I think the new model does just that.”
The OPPO F1s lands with a price tag of P12,990. The phone will officially hit stores on August 19.
International finance company Home Credit offers the F1s at an affordable six-month installment plan for as low as P2,165 at 0% interest.
Home Credit Philippines’ Head of Sales Adam Bernasek said, “Home Credit aims to bring smiles to many Filipino customers as we offer the newest OPPO F1s at very affordable installments. We are thrilled to be partnering with OPPO once again, and we look forward to helping even more Filipinos avail of the best selfie phone in the market.”
OPPO and Home Credit were also partners earlier this year with the launch of the F1 at affordable 0% installments.
