The successor of the popular Oppo F1 is expected to feature a 16 MP front camera and will be unveiled on August 3rd, as previously rumored.

Oppo is getting ready to unleash a new selfie-centric handset that will succeed the popular F1 smartphone. Simply dubbed F1s, this new Android mid-ranger is expected to have similar features to the 5.5-inch F1 Plus and its launch event is scheduled to start at 12 PM on August 3.

For now, there is no official information about the specs and features of the Oppo F1s, but insiders familiar with the matter claim the handset features a 16 MP camera for selfies just like the Oppo F1 Plus. A fingerprint reader located on the home button is also expected to be present. The Oppo F1 Plus launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop on board, but the F1s will probably come out with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The F1 Plus is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 processor, next to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.

Last week, Oppo's Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business Sky Li said that "Global reception for the F1 has been incredible and users have given us a lot of great feedback, so we wanted to go one step further to bring them the ultimate experience. The upgraded F1s is going to be a huge hit." We will get back to this handset in early August as soon as it goes official, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
