Chinese smartphone-maker Oppo has launched two new camera-centric handsets, dubbed F1 and F1 Plus, in India.
The key aspect of the Oppo F1 series device is the front-camera. It boasts a feature-rich 8MP camera f/2.0 aperture, ¼-inch sensor, Beautify v3.0 tool and also comes with special software to brighten display to bring out a flash-like effect while taking a selfie, similar to top-end Apple iPhone 6S series.
On the back, they come packed with a 13MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and single-LED flash.
Oppo F1 Plus features almost the same hardware. A key difference between the two is the F1 Plus features a bigger 5.5-inch full-HD display and 4GB RAM, whereas the F1 sports a smaller 5.0-inch HD screen and 3GB RAM.
The rest of the features are the same for both devices. They come with a full-metal body, Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, Snapdragon 616 Octa-core processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage and a 2,500mAh cell.
Oppo has revealed the F1 Plus boasts a more sophisticated front-camera than F1, but for reasons unknown, it did not reveal whether the F1 Plus will have an 8MP snapper with better imaging processor or a higher MP count. The company also did not disclose the battery details of the F 1 Plus. Stay tuned for more updates.
