Last year saw the release of two OPPO F-series phones — the dual-front cam-equipped F3, and the 18:9 F5. Now, OPPO has officially launched the follow up to its popular F-series, the F7. What’s different with the F7 is that it has a large 6.23″ 19:9 FHD+, a 25 MP selfie shooter with AI beautification, and a fairly powerful MediaTek Helio P60 processor.
For most smartphones, the rear camera has the higher megapixel count; but not with the OPPO F7. OPPO’s latest phone features a 25 MP selfie camera, and it uses a Sony IMX 576 sensor — the first-ever smartphone to have one. The F7’s selfie camera also features AI beautification technology, which smartly adjusts the beautification levels for each person in the frame.
The F7 boasts an impressive front camera, but its rear shooter promises to deliver good shots as well. OPPO’s latest phone has a 16 MP f/1.8 rear-facing camera that should provide excellent photos, even in lower light conditions.
The OPPO F7 also has a display that’s complete with a notch (you can thank the iPhone X for this trend). While some users may not be fans of this design choice, it does mean that the F7 has more screen real estate — it’s display in fact has a resolution of 2280 x 1080.
Performance-wise, the F7 promises to be no slouch, as it’s equipped with a MediaTek Helio P60 SoC. The Helio P60 is an upper mid-range processor from MediaTek, and it should perform well with most tasks along with gaming. Speaking of internals, there will be two version of the F7 in the Philippines, the 4 GB RAM + 64 GB ROM model, and the 6 GB RAM + 128 GB ROM version.
“The OPPO F7 definitely changes—and upgrades—the selfie game of users with its groundbreaking features,” said Eason de Guzman, OPPO Philippines Public Relations Manager. “With a best-in-class 25MP front-facing camera, improved performance for multi-tasking, and a sleek, stylish body, the F7 will surely be a hit among Filipino smartphone users and selfie enthusiasts.”
The OPPO F7 will be available starting tomorrow, April 21, for PhP 17,990.00. The phone comes in two colors — solar red and moonlight silver. The 128GB, 6GB RAM variant meantime will retail for PhP 21,990.00, and will be available available in diamond black and solar red colors. For those interested in purchasing the F7 under a service plan, OPPO’s partners include Home Credit at nine months with 0% Interest, Globe (Plan 1499), and Smart (Plan 1499).
