OPPO F1s: OPPO’s Latest Selfie Expert Smartphone
In the smartphone industry, the rivalry has never been this strong, with high-spec products offered in the market with very competitive prices. OPPO F1’s very first cycle came from the company’s mid-end range products, featuring amazing capabilities that naturally attracts customers due to its great camera software and its similarly intense front-facing camera.
OPPO is now being regarded as one of the rising mobile tech giants in the industry. Now, after the release of its F1 and F1 Plus, the company created a new model that is packed with a more intense power than its forerunners.
At first glance, you will not notice any difference with the new F1 from previous OPPO mobile phone units. It still has that thin and somewhat rounded bezels and still features its usual white colorway. However, it is where their similarities end.
Unveiling of the newest “selfie expert”
Selected media and bloggers were invited by the company to witness the launch of OPPO’s newest camera phone, which is named as the “selfie expert.” It was held at Pico Sands Hotel, Pico de Loro Cove in Batangas last August 11 through 13, 2016.
The fun-filled event was organized by Mr. Garrick Hung, Operations Manager of OPPO Philippines, and Mr. Stephen Cheng, Brand Marketing Manager of OPPO Philippines.
There were also celebrities who paraded OPPO’s newest product to the crowd. Some of them were Kylie Padilla, Jasmin Curtis, Mikael Daez, and Ella Cruz. There were also representatives from Home Credit Philippines who were invited at the event.
Art, smarts, and looks to crave for
The F1s is known for its 5.5-inch size. However, size doesn’t really define this powerful smartphone. One of its most noticeable features is its front-facing snapper that has 16-megapixel spec. This makes it noteworthy for people who like taking selfies, group pictures (especially during travels) and video calls. On the flip side, its rear camera has a 13-megapixel sensor.
OPPO’s brand new phone runs on an MT6750 octa-core processor, with a RAM that has up to 3 GB capacity. It also touts an amazing amount of power—a 3,075 mAh internal battery. With such specs, you will not have any trouble using it for mobile games and social media all day.
Stephen Cheng, OPPO’s Brand Marketing Manager for the Philippines, said during the F1s launch last August 11 at Pico de Loro, Batangas, that F1s lets you take selfies the way you’ve wanted them to look. He also added that they’ve always wanted to provide their customers with a mobile phone that provides satisfaction to selfie addicts and this is embodied with the brand’s newest model.
The new version of OPPO’s ColorOS runs the F1s, which add to its power. On the other hand, the camera is made from a great hardware that allows users to edit their photos right away. This is OPPO’s built-in Beautify 4.0 software.
Cheng said that with the kind of competition that they have in the smartphone industry, they need to roll out a product that brings the best out of each user.
F1s can be bought at an affordable 6-month installment plan from Home Credit, an international finance company, for as low as P2,165 at 0% interest rate. Adam Bernasek, Home Credit Philippines’ Head of Sales, said that their company’s goal is to bring happiness to their Filipino consumers. They thought that their renewed partnership with OPPO and offering F1s, the so-called “selfie expert,” at an affordable installment plan is the best way to achieve their goal.
How much is OPPO F1s in the Philippines?
Suggested retail price of the OPPO F1s is P12,990 and it is available in all concept and dealer stores nationwide.
