When the OPPO F5 was launched in India, a less powerful version called the OPPO F5 Youth was revealed. However, specification and pricing details were not revealed, though OPPO did say it would go on sale in December. Today, the OPPO F5 Youth has been officially launched in The Philippines.
OPPO F5 Youth Design & Specs
The F5 Youth shares nearly the same design as its sibling. The key difference is the missing antenna lines on the Youth. Other than that, they can pass for identical devices.
The F5 Youth has a 6.0” FHD+ display just as the OPPO F5. The chipset is also the same MediaTek MT6763T. Where it differs is in the RAM and storage. You get 3GB and 32GB respectively. However, storage is expandable to 256GB via a dedicated MicroSD card slot.
Asides the RAM and storage another major difference between the F5 Youth and its sibling is the cameras. It doesn’t get the 20MP AI Beauty Selfie camera nor the 16MP rear camera. Instead you have a 16MP f/2.0 2.0um AI beauty selfie camera and a 13MP f/2.0 rear camera.
The OPPO F5 Youth has a 3200mAh battery that charges via a micro USB port. There is an audio jack, Bluetooth 4.2, dual band Wi-Fi, and dual nano SIM slots. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner in addition to Face Unlock.
The F5 Youth runs ColorOS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 which brings split-screen multitasking, DND gaming mode, and a Night Shield mode that reduces eye strain when in dark environments.
OPPO F5 Youth Price
The OPPO F5 Youth is available for purchase already for PHP 13,990 (~$275). Just like the 4GB RAM OPPO F5, the F5 Youth comes in black and gold.
