The device runs on Android 7.1 Nougat with company's ColorUI 3.2 running on top of it. It has launched the 6GB RAM variant at Rs. 24,999. Another variant of the F5 featuring 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage would be available next month.
The phone also includes an Iris scanner for quick unlock and Bokeh mode in the front camera. On the sidelines of this event, OPPO announced a new brand slogan - "The Selfie expert and leader" consistent with its accomplishments in the Pakistan market. The selfie camera comes with AI technology which promises clear and lovely selfies and can be used to unlock the device using facial recognition.
Starting November 9, the phone will be available exclusively on Flipkart. Up front there is a 20 megapixel camera with an f/2.0 lens designed for Selfies.
Apart from that AI powered selfie camera, the phone features a 16 MP sensor at the back with f/1.8 aperture and dual led flash.
As for the rest of the specifications are concerned, the smartphone sports a 6-inch Full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and Corning Glass 5 protection and a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
Let us talk about some of the highlighting features of the new Oppo F5 smartphone.
The statement also states that the device will feature Artificial Intelligence enabled selfie beautification which is likely to also be the biggest highlight of the handset despite having other attractive features and a face recognition. The internal storage can be expanded up to 256 GB using a microSD card. It is powered by a 3,200mAh battery.
Apart from this, Oppo also announced the launch of Oppo F5 Youth which it will start rolling out from December onward. The OPPO F5 actually comes in Red, Black, and Gold color variants, though it's worth noting that the 4GB RAM model comes in Black and Gold color options only, while the 6GB RAM variant will be available in Black and Red color variants. Most comments on Amazon target this part of the phablet, going as far as "Worst phone in the history of mankind", so it looks like the Oppo F5 might not become too popular unless its maker updates it quickly with a more popular Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
