Oppo has an answer to all your needs. First, it was selfie and now, it is performance. Instead of launching a new smartphone, Oppo chose to upgrade its popular selfie expert Oppo F1s to meet the requirement of power-hungry apps and games you use every day.
Oppo F1s has already met consumers' eyes with good reception and the latest upgrade makes it even more appealing. While the design and most specs of the new Oppo F1s remain the same, some notable upgrades will make the new handset worth its presence in the competitive smartphone market.
In terms of upgraded specs, the new Oppo F1s comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage along with a dedicated microSD card slot. To add a refreshing touch to the phone, the company also introduced a new grey colour variant, which looks posh. As a limited period offer, first 50,000 buyers of the new F1s smartphone will get a Doctor Strange phone cover free of cost.
With these upgrades, Oppo F1s comes at a reasonably hiked price of Rs. 18,990, which is Rs. 1,000 more than the original F1s smartphone. It will be available in all Oppo stores across Indian later this month, while Amazon.in will start selling the phone in December.
The rest of the features seen in the new upgraded model are same as in the original F1s. It has a metal uni-body with a 2.5D curved glass, a 5.5-inch HD IPS display protected by Gorilla Glass 4, a 16MP front-facing snapper with ISOCELL technology, f/2.0 aperture, 78.1-degree wide-angle view and features such as Beautify 4.0, Selfie Panorama, Screen Flash and built-in filters for added effects.
The F1s handset sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with a 1/3-inch sensor and a large F2.2 aperture, PDAF and ultra-fast focus speeds, along with all-new Expert Mode, Ultra-HD, Double Exposure and Super GIF features.
Under the hood, the dual-SIM smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor, Android 5.1 Lollipop-based ColorOS 3.0 and a 3,075mAh battery. There is a physical home button, which has a fingerprint scanner integrated within. As we noted in our review of the F1s, the biometric scanner is extremely fast and accurate in authenticating its rightful owner.
