Following the much-hyped arrival of Oppo’s latest selfie-focused flagship, the sleek and stylish OPPO F5 finally arrived in the Philippines on Thursday (October 26) in a star-studded event in City of Dreams, Pasay City.
Sporting a 6-inch display, Oppo F5 is not entirely different from the current crop of releases featuring an all-screen front and with almost absent bezel around the display.
It also features a Face Unlock technology for security, as well as Fingerprint Scanner.
Key Specs, Features
The other major feature of the Oppo F3 successor that the Chinese smartphone maker is marketing heavily is its AI-enabled beauty technology integrated in the front camera. Oppo claimed its F5’s front camera can recognize if there is a background light or if it needs to add luminance to portraits for improved selfies. The Oppo F5 front camera is capable of clicking shots with a Bokeh effect.
Still around? Let’s continue what Oppo F5’s front camera offers the competition. It has a 20-megapixel sensor, accompanied with f/2.0 aperture lens. The back sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and LED flash. It has a 6-inch TFT display with full-HD+ screen resolution of 1080×2160 pixels.
