Like the F1 before it, the Oppo F1 Plus is touted as being a “Selfie Expert.” The F1 Plus kicks things up a notch, though, by boasting a 16-megapixel front-facing camera, whereas the F1’s front camera is an 8-megapixel shooter. The F1 Plus’s 16-megapixel front camera boasts an f/2.0 aperture lens and “unique sensor technology” that Oppo touts as taking in four times as much incoming light as other smartphones cameras.
The F1 Plus also boasts some software selfie features, called Beautify 4.0. The Beautify 4.0 bundle includes goodies like Selfie Panorama, which lets you take a panoramic photo with your front-facing camera. There’s also Screen Flash to help give your selfies some more light and some filters that you can apply to your images.
The rear camera on the F1 Plus is a 13-megapixel shooter with LED flash and f/2.2 aperture lens, which just goes to show that the focus of the F1 Plus truly is the selfie.
The Oppo F1 Plus’s metal body houses a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 AMOLED display that has 1.66mm-thick bezels. That’s up from the 5-inch 1280x720 screen found on the Oppo F1. Other F1 Plus specs include an octa-core MediaTek MT6755 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a microSD slot, dual SIM slots, a fingerprint reader, and a 2850mAh battery that can be quickly juiced up using Oppo’s VOOC Flash Charge tech that can give you enough charge for two hours of talk time in five minutes.
On the software side, the F1 Plus is running Android 5.1 beneath Oppo’s custom ColorOS 3.0 user interface. Oppo touts that the latest update to ColorOS is simpler, smoother, and easier to use thanks to system optimizations.
The Oppo F1 Plus is launching in India in mid-April at a price of 26,990 rupees, or around $406 USD. It’ll also make its way to Vietnam, Malaysia, Egypt, Kenya, and Morocco soon, followed by a debut in Europe in May.
While its main focus is selfies, the the rest of the Oppo F1 Plus’s feature set seems to be pretty respectable, too. Obviously we’ll have to wait until the F1 Plus is in our hands before we can make any judgments about its performance, but the inclusion of 4GB of RAM is a welcome sight, and the combination of a metal body and fingerprint reader should help to make the F1 Plus feel premium.
