Selfies are not just a trend, they’re here to stay. Be it just a shot of yourself, a picture with a pretty view, or a photo of a date with your significant other, taking a selfie is an easy way of keeping a snapshot of memories that you would like to keep (or maybe just how good-looking you are on a particular day). Now that practically everyone is taking selfies, phone manufacturers are releasing models with high-quality front cameras with beautification apps baked in them. One such manufacturer is Oppo with their new hit selfie phone, the F1s.
Nicknamed the ‘selfie expert’, the F1s made its debut in Philippine stores on August 19. As of August 21, over 19,000 units were sold across the country.
A road show was held simultaneously in Metro Manila, Davao, and Cebu to mark the smartphone’s first day in stores.
Amazing selfies anytime, anywhere
The latest addition to OPPO’s F1 series captures vibrant selfies at any time of the day, thanks to its 16-megapixel front-facing camera that has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and a large f/2.0 aperture. The latest iteration of its beautification app, Beautify 4.0, also comes with an Auto Mode Screen Flash and eight filters for amazing selfies just the way users want them to be.
The phone’s panorama feature also makes it more convenient to take ‘groufies’ while the palm-activated shutter allows for easier and faster selfies.
The F1s is further equipped with an equally powerful 13-megapixel rear camera that has its own plug-ins such as the upgraded Expert Mode, Ultra-HD, GIF, and double exposure.
Powerful, speedy, beautiful
Just like its predecessor, the F1 plus, the F1s uses fingerprint recognition that can unlock the phone in 0.22 seconds. The phone’s fingerprint-activated app launch assigns fingerprints to up to five apps or contacts for quick access through the home button.
An octa-core processor backed by a 3GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, and the ColorOS 3.0, adds power to the phone’s hardware. Thanks to the power optimizations of the ColorOS combined with a 3075mAh battery, users can hope to use the phone all day.
The sleek metal body of the F1s has a 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen to create an exceptional gaming and movie experience for users.
The F1s has a suggested retail price of PHP 12,990. To sweeten the deal, Oppo’s financial service provider, Home Credit, is offering the F1s at zero percent for six months..
