The selfie craze is at an all-time high as OPPO’s latest camera phone sells out in concept and dealer stores nationwide.
Nicknamed the ‘selfie expert’, the F1s made its debut in Philippine stores on August 19. As of August 21, over 19,000 units were sold across the country.
A road show was held simultaneously in Metro Manila, Davao, and Cebu to mark the smartphone’s first day in stores.
“We never expected that consumers would be this enthusiastic about the F1s. It’s overwhelming to know that our first units sold out in three days,” said OPPO Marketing Brand Manager Stephen Cheng. “We are excited to deliver more F1s units to stores, especially because we want more people to have the ultimate selfie experience.”
Amazing selfies anytime, anywhere
The latest addition to OPPO’s F1 series captures vibrant selfies at any time of the day, thanks to its 16-megapixel front-facing camera that has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and a large f/2.0 aperture. The latest iteration of its beautification app, Beautify 4.0, also comes with an Auto Mode Screen Flash and eight filters for amazing selfies just the way users want them to be.
The phone’s panorama feature also makes it more convenient to take ‘groufies’ while the palm-activated shutter allows for easier and faster selfies.
The F1s is further equipped with an equally powerful 13-megapixel rear camera that has its own plug-ins such as the upgraded Expert Mode, Ultra-HD, GIF, and double exposure.
Powerful, speedy, beautiful
Just like its predecessor, the F1 plus, the F1s uses fingerprint recognition that can unlock the phone in 0.22 seconds. The phone’s fingerprint-activated app launch assigns fingerprints to up to five apps or contacts for quick access through the home button.
An octa-core processor backed by a 3GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, and the ColorOS 3.0, adds power to the phone’s hardware. Thanks to the power optimizations of the ColorOS combined with a 3075mAh battery, users can hope to use the phone all day.
The sleek metal body of the F1s has a 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen to create an exceptional gaming and movie experience for users.
Available at zero percent interest
Financial service provider Home Credit, OPPO’s longtime partner, is also offering the F1s at zero percent interest for six months. The promo kicked off on the first day of the F1s in stores.
The smartphone’s suggested retail price is PhP12, 990.
