OPPO Reno12 Series 5G Pre-order

OPPO has just announced the OPPO F1 camera phone. Dubbed the Selfie Expert, the F1 features a metal frame, an 8MP front camera with a  1/4 inch sized sensor, and a P11,990 price tag.


The Selfie Expert

OPPO teased last month that their new F series will be photo-centric. It’s not a surprise that the first smartphone they’d unveil for the year is the selfie expert OPPO F1.


The OPPO F1 lives up to its nickname because of the 8MP front camera powered by a 1/4 inch sensor. It has a wide 84 degree view lens with a large aperture of f/2.0. It doesn’t have a front flash, but it lights up the display using a white background. The main shooter uses a 13MP sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and phase detection auto-focus.
