The 5.5-inch F1s will retail for about $275 USD with a 16 MP front camera that's more powerful than its rear 13 MP camera.

Oppo officially revealed its selfie-centric F1s smartphone at Mumbai, India as the successor to the F1. Core specifications include:

  • 5.5-inch 2.5D Gorilla Glass 4 display
  • 1280 x 720p resolution
  • Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC (4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.5 GHz + 4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.0 GHz)
  • Integrated ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 32 GB eMMC
  • 2x Nano-SIM slots + MicroSD support up to 128 GB
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop with Colores 3.0
  • 3075 mAh non-removable battery
  • 7.4 mm thickness
  • 160 g

The most notable feature will be its 16 MP front-facing camera and its 1/3.1-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture designed for selfies. A "selfie panorama" option is available as well for group shots. Meanwhile, its rear camera will be a more standard 13 MP offering with a 1/3.06-inch sensor and f/2.2 aperture.

Outside of its camera features, the F1s will have dual-SIM capabilities and a standalone MicroSD reader unlike on most other dual-SIM smartphones where the MicroSD slot is shared with a SIM slot. Its combination Home button and fingerprint sensor promises a response time of just 0.22 seconds.

The F1s will launch in Asian, Middle Eastern, and Australian territories in Rose Gold, Gold, and Gray color options for the equivalent of $275 USD. An official launch in Europe has not yet been announced.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
