Last month, OPPO unveiled the OPPO R9 and R9 Plus smartphones in China. Both were pretty decent smartphones with powerful specs and premium design. Now, the company has launched the OPPO F1 Plus in India, which is basically the global version of the OPPO R9. So, despite the “Plus” tag line, this is the rebranded R9 and not the R9 Plus.
The OPPO F1 Plus is primarily a camera-centric smartphone with a powerful 16MP front facing camera. The phone is ideal for selfies, with such a powerful shooter up front, thanks to f/2.0 aperture and 78.1 degrees wide angle lens. At the back, the phone features a 13MP camera with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF and LED flash. It supports 4K video shooting as well.
The F1 Plus comes with a physical home button with a fingerprint sensor. The sensor can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. As for the display, the phone sports a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED panel with 1.6mm ultra-narrow bezels.
Under the hood, the OPPO F1 Plus comes with the Helio P10 MT6755 octa-core chip clocked at 2GHz. For memory, the phone features 4GB of RAM and 32GB/ 64GB internal storage. This is further expandable up to 128GB via MicroSD (Hybrid). Finally, there’s a 2850mAh battery with the company’s VOOC flash charge.
The OPPO F1 Plus comes in Gold and Rose Gold colors and is priced at Rs. 26,990 which comes to around $400. The phone will go on sale around mid-April in the country.
