Oppo F5 Youth, which was teased at the Oppo F5 launch event, has now been officially launched in India. Recently, the smartphone was made available in the Philippines.
The phone’s design is almost same as the design of the original model. The key difference is the missing antenna lines on the Youth model. Other than that, everything seems identical.
The smartphone comes with a 6-inch LTPS TFT Full HD+ display with a screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6763T Helio P23 processor, coupled with 3GB RAM.
It packs 32GB of onboard storage which can also be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card. Rather than a hybrid SIM card slot, the device comes with a dedicated microSD card slot.
On the photography front, the device features a 13-megapixel rear camera sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and an LED flash, along with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture. In contrast, the F5 comes with a 16-megapixel rear camera sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 20-megapixel front camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
Connectivity options on the Oppo F5 Youth include Dual SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, Micro-USB with USB OTG support, and a 3.5mm audio jack. For security features, the device comes with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.
The phone runs Android 7.1 Nougat operating system based ColorOS 3.2, which brings features like split-screen multitasking, DND gaming mode, and a Night Shield mode. It also comes with support for Facial Unlock feature.
The Oppo F5 Youth is priced at Rs. 16,990 in India and will be available for purchase from Friday, i.e. December 8. The smartphone will be available through offline as well as online stores. As of now, the company has not revealed any details related to the launch offers.
