As previously reported by so many local tech bloggers, the Oppo F1 Plus is now finally here in the Philippines. This phone's arrival was officially announced at the recent event Oppo PH held. This is the second installment by Oppo to their selfie-centric line of camera phones where the Oppo F1 was the first.
What's so interesting about this model is that the front facing camera features a much higher resolution shooter than the main camera on the back. The rear and main camera of the Oppo F1 Plus is pegged at 13MP, the one on front is at 16MP. Hence, the moniker "Selfie Expert". I think this is the first of its kind anywhere in the Android ecosystem where the front camera is much bigger in terms of resolution than the rear one.
On paper, the Oppo F1 Plus offers high-end and very competitive specs that many Android fanatics will definitely appreciate, not to mention how beautiful the Oppo F1 Plus's design is, thanks to its metal unibody casing with chamfered edges. See the rest of the specs below.
