One week after launching the F5 in the Philippines, OPPO has launched the selfie-focused model for the Indian market. OPPO F5 will be sold exclusively on Flipkart in India online but that wouldn’t stop the model from being sold offline via the numerous brand partners OPPO has got scattered across India.
The major highlight of the F5 is the 18:9 full-screen design as well as the AI-powered beautification features coupled with a large 20MP selfie camera. As you would expect, the models launched in India is the same as that of the Philippines. But in addition to the F5, OPPO also announced the OPPO F5 Youth Edition with a similar 6-inch display and AI beautification features. The F5 Youth will be launched in India in December, but no other details of the smartphone are available at the moment.
For those not conversant with the model, the OPPO F5 features a 6.0-inch LTPS TFT display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 (FHD+) and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The reduced bezels and aspect ratio make the device look less bulky like the F3 Plus which it shares the same display size with. The device is powered by MediaTek’s latest Helio P23 SoC and is available in two memory variants – 4GB RAM +32GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Both versions have a dedicated MicroSD card slot for up to an additional 256GB storage.
The OPPO F5 packs a 3,200mAh battery and comes with two nano SIM slots, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2. The device runs the new ColorOS 3.2 based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat which brings new features such as O-Share – a wireless transfer technology between OPPO devices; gaming DND; Night Shield which lets you choose between normal, warm, and black and white modes so your eyes are protected and face unlock.
