OPPO Philippines launches a new smartphone to add to the powerful line-up of the F Series which was first introduced in 2016 Q1 in the country.
Beaming high from it’s recent achievement as the third top-selling mobile brand in the country, OPPO announced the availability of the new OPPO F1s starting August 19. The OPPO F1s launch was held at Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club in Nasugbu, Batangas with more than 80 participating online and traditional media attending the 3-day event from August 11 to August 13.
The latest flagship OPPO F1s matches the spectacular design and build of the OPPO F1 Plus but with a more affordable price and additional specs and features to boast.
The Selfie Expert phone unit will rival the other popular smartphones in the midrange segment of the mobile device industry.
For a phone with a 5.5-inch form factor, the F1s doesn’t skimp out on its feature set. The first notable feature is its 16-megapixel front-facing camera, which is predictably amazing for selfies, group photos, and video calls. The rear camera is no slouch either, boasting a powerful 13-megapixel sensor.
The phone runs on an MT6750 octa-core processor with up to three gigabytes of RAM. It also carries a fair amount of juice with a 3075 mAh internal battery. This should be more than enough for casual gaming and browsing social media accounts throughout the day. Much more juice than the OPPO F1 Plus battery.
“It’s amazing how the F1s lets you capture selfies the way you want them to look,” said OPPO Brand Marketing Manager for the Philippines Stephen Cheng during the F1s launch at Pico de Loro. “We wanted to offer a phone that gives selfie lovers a satisfying photo experience, and I think the new model does just that.”
Adding to its sheer power, the F1s runs on the latest version of OPPO’s ColorOS, a proprietary Android skin. While the camera itself is an impressive piece of hardware, OPPO’s built-in Beautify 4.0 software allows users to readily tweak their photos on the fly.
It’s hard to stand out in the saturated selfie smartphone market, but OPPO is really coming into their own as a company that allows its hardware to step back and let the users be the stars. “With how personal phones are, it’s important for us to produce models that bring out the best in people,” Cheng said.
International finance company Home Credit offers the F1s at an affordable six-month installment plan for as low as P2,165 at zero percent interest. “Home Credit aims to bring smiles to many Filipino customers as we offer the newest OPPO F1S at very affordable installments,” said Home Credit Philippines’ Head of Sales, Adam Bernasek. “We are thrilled to be partnering with OPPO once again, and we look forward to helping even more Filipinos avail of the best selfie phone in the market.”
OPPO partnered with Home Credit earlier this year to offer the F1 at zero percent installments.
The fun-filled event hosted by DJ Sam Oh also introduced the OPPO F1s Celebrity Influencers such as Kylie Nicole Padilla, Bea Binene, Ella Cruz, Shy Carlos, Julian Trono, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, and a few other celebrities of the local showbiz industry.
The OPPO F1s is available at P12,990.
