Last weekend, I had the chance to witness the launch of the newest #SelfieExpert at Pico de Loro, Batangas. Mobilr technology brand, OPPO, introduces its latest selfie expert: the OPPO F1s.
The latest camera phone from OPPO will be out in concept and dealer stores on August 19.
“With the launch of the F1s, OPPO once more demonstrates its commitment to create the best possible selfie and smartphone experience, ” said OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng.
“When OPPO developed the F1s, what we had in mind are the things that people look for in smartphones: outstanding cameras, beautiful design, and powerful hardware and software. Thanks to the F1s, users can surely look forward to having a step up in their selfie game,” he added.
Pre-orders for the F1s are open until tomorrow, August 18. And good news to those who will pre-order because they also have a chance to win a free second F1s.
Upon receiving the phone on August 19, customers must take a photo of themselves at the store holding a sign that says “I choose F1s.” The photo must be uploaded on Facebook with the hashtags #OPPOF1s and #SelfieExpert. Only ten lucky winners will be chosen for the free phone.
The latest addition to the OPPO F1 series features a 16-megapixel front camera with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and a large f/2.0 aperture. The camera captures vivid depth and detail for the perfect selfie.
The F1s is equipped with the latest iteration of the Beautify photo app which comes with a suite of functions such as an Auto Mode Screen Flash and eight filters. The selfie panorama makes it easier to take ‘groufies’ while the palm-activated shutter allows for easier and faster selfies.
The 13-megapixel rear camera captures equally clear and vivid shots. Like the front camera, the rear camera has its own plug-ins including the upgraded Expert Mode, Ultra-HD, GIF, and double exposure.
Power, security, beauty
Just like OPPO’s other camera phones, the F1s combines powerful hardware and software to create a selfie experience like no other.
Similar to the F1 plus, it has lightning-fast fingerprint recognition that unlocks the phone in 0.22 seconds. The fingerprint-activated app launch also assigns fingerprints to five different apps or contacts for quick access through the home button.
The F1s runs on an octa-core processor backed by a 3GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, and the ColorOS 3.0. The power optimizations of the ColorOS combined with a 3075mAh battery allows for all-day use of the phone.
The beauty of the F1s also makes it stand out at first glance. The sleek metal body has a 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen that helps create an exceptional gaming and movie experience.
Zero percent interest
Consumer financial service Home Credit, one of OPPO’s partners, is also offering the F1s at zero percent interest for six months. Home Credit’s promo starts on August 19 once the F1s becomes available nationwide.
Suggested retail price is PhP12, 990.
