After a number of teasers on OPPO Philippines' Facebook page a few days ago, this mobile electronics company has officially revealed the new face of Selfie Expert and a brand new color addition to its best selling selfie-centric smartphone called F1s.
The "New Face of Selfie Expert" is none other than the "Pambansang Bae" himself, Alden Richards. Alden is now the newest addition to the growing number of OPPO's brand ambassadors here in the Philippines.
"We are thrilled to welcome Alden Richards to our growing OPPO family," Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. "We can wait to see how Alden will help us redefine our selfie-taking experiences." he added.
This new endorser announcement was made official through a special event that was held a couple of days ago at SM Mall of Asia where members of the media and bloggers together with mall goers were in attendance.
"Selfies capture life's most unforgettable moments in a very spontaneous way. I'm proud to be part of a family that celebrates those special moments," Richards said.
OPPO F1s was formally released in the Philippines in August, and in just three days from its local release, OPPO said over 19,000 units were immediately sold. For a relatively new player in the market such as OPPO, having these numbers this early is already a great achievement. In fact, according to German-based market research firm GfK, OPPO is now the second best-selling smartphone brand in the Philippines.
Apart from revealing Alden Richards as the newest selfie expert celebrity, OPPO has also unveiled the latest OPPO F1s Limited. It is a special edition of the said device that sports new color that will really attract a much wider audience especially those who are not that fans of current Gold and Rose Gold color selections, the new OPPO F1s Limited variant will be available in Metallic Grey.
Aside from the Metallic Grey version, this OPPO F1s still sports the same high-powered specs and features that many interested users and fans have fallen in love with. The 16MP front facing camera that can snap bright selfies even in dim light is still intact and located on the front panel of the device. This camera is equipped with large apertures enabling it to produce bright and nicely looking photos even when captured in low light scenes. Also adding more magic to the selfie photos and experience is the inclusion of the upgraded Beautify 3.0 feature which sports a ton of camera-related functionalities that will help users to achieve the perfect selfie pics they want. Of course on the back is a 13MP shooter that is also as great as the front facing counterpart.
One of the nicest features of the OPPO F1s is its fingerprint sensor that works so fast and so fluid. In fact it can unlock the device as fast as 0.22 seconds. Almost instantly.
