It is every now and then that the smartphone manufacturer treat us to a new Selfie centric phone and this time around its Oppo’s turn. The Oppo F1 Plus is touted as the Selfie Expert and the F1 Plus seems to be an international variant of the Oppo R9 and will be succeeding the F1. The Oppo F1 Plus has been priced at Rs 26,990 and will be made available starting from mid-April.
The F1 Plus is equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display and it also comes with a fingerprint scanner integrated in the home button. On the imaging front the F1 Plus seems to have lot to offer, the 16-Megapixel front camera comes with a 78.1-degree wide angle lens, f2.0 aperture. The secondary camera is a 13-Megapixel sensor with flash, PDAF and 4K video capability. It is interesting to see a more powerful secondary camera unit as opposed to the smaller primary sensor. Smart Sensor is something that Oppo claims to be the smallest Optical Image Stabilisation unit and it is aimed to help you.
Oppo F1 Plus draws its power from the MediaTek Helio P10 which is clocked at 2GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM. On the storage front the device will offer 64GB of Internal storage along with a hybrid SIM slot that would accommodate up to 128GB of additional storage. When it comes to Oppo we are quite familiar with its VOOC flash charging technology and on F1 Plus the company claims that a 5-minute of charge will result in two hours of talk time.
The F1 Plus heralds with the usual bevy of connectivity features including VoLTE support, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and Micro USB. The phone comes clad in a metal body and it does look sleek. F1 Plus runs on ColorOS 3.0 flavored Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and comes backed by a 2850mAh battery. At Rs 26,990 it looks a bit overpriced considering it’s taking on the likes of OnePlus 2, Xiaomi Mi5 and Lenovo Vibe X3, but then Oppo isn’t really the one playing the Value for Money game.
