The Oppo F1s was released this Wednesday at an event in India and it will supposedly be one of the best smartphones for selfies out there. It’s priced at 17,990 rupees (roughly $270) and people will be able to buy it both from retail stores or from Amazon India starting August 11.
The smartphone will be available in the following color variants: Grey, Gold and Rose Gold.
Oppo F1s Specs
The smartphone will sport an amazing 16 MP front camera with a f/2.0 aperture and a 1/3.1 inch sensor which is especially designed for taking selfies. These are impressive specs for a front camera, because it’s usually the rear cameras that are designed to be the highlight of the phone.
However, these aren’t the only selfie related features that have been implemented into the Oppo F1s. It also has a selfie editing app named Beautify 4.0, a Screen Flash app and a Selfie Panorama app that puts together three selfies.
Moving on from selfie related specs, the rear camera is actually a less impressive 13 MP one with f/2.2 aperture, auto focus and dual LED flash. The device also features a home button with a fingerprint scanner. According to Oppo – the company that manufactures the Oppo smartphone line – the scanner unlocks the phone in 0.22 seconds which is pretty fast.
But unlocking the phone is not the only thing the fingerprint scanner is good at. Apparently, Oppo says that it can also be used as a shortcut for a number of actions such as launching apps or making voice calls.
The Oppo F1s also features a dual SIM card that runs on an Android Lollipop based OS named ColorOS 3.0. It also sports a 5.5 inch HD IPS display complete with Gorilla Glass 4 for protection. However, this glass, although highly effective, doesn’t support wet touch input or gloved touch input.
The Oppo F1s has 3 GB of RAM and it’s powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC processor with a Mali T860 MP2 GPU. It comes with 32 GB of storage space which can be expanded via a microSD card to 32 GB.
In terms of battery, the Oppo F1s has a 3075mAh one and it also has several connectivity options such as WiFi, GPS or 4G LTE.
