Consumer electronics major Oppo Electronics Corp, a pioneer in bringing world's first smartphone with swivelling shooter, is set to announce a new camera-centric F series smartphone this month.
"The F series will inherit the excellent camera performance and exquisite design tradition that have earned accolades for OPPO's flagship series. The series will bring devices with impressive specs, eye-catching style and amazing prices that will have consumers doing double takes on the excellent specs and build quality," said Sky Li, OPPO Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business
"We are very excited to introduce the F series, which will allow an even wider range of users from all around the world to experience OPPO's outstanding photography technology," he added.
There is no word on a specific launch date of the Oppo F1, but rumour has it that the company might unveil it in the upcoming world renowned trade fair CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016, Las Vegas (6-9, January).
The company has refrained from revealing what hardware Oppo F1 series will feature, but if sources of Phone Radar are to be believed, the new phone is speculated as an international variant of the A53 that was unveiled in China last month.
Oppo A53 sports a 5.5-inch HD display and comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 Octa-core SoC (System-on-Chip) with 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt storage and 3075 mAh battery.
It also boasts 13MP camera with LED flash, HDR, full HD recording and a 5MP snapper on the front.
That said, we are not assuming that Oppo F1 is the A53, as the latter has no marquee camera feature to make it stand out among competitors. We just have to wait for a few more days to known what Oppo has in store for fans.
