OPPO F5 Youth will be Available on Nov 25


OPPO Philippines is set to launch yet another selfie centric smartphone in the country this weekend. The said device is now officially called F5 Youth. And according to the Chinese smartphone maker, users will be able to start purchasing this unit beginning November 25, 2017 for a price tag of just Php13,990.

"Since we launched the F5, we have envisioned OPPO to capture real moments - the real you, your real beauty. And with the release of the OPPO F5 Youth, we give everyone an opportunity to get a full experience of the new generation of selfies with the same A.I. Beauty Recognition technology," said Stephen Cheng, OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager.

As mentioned by Mr Stephen Cheng, the OPPO F5 Youth will also be equipped with new and smarter A.I. Beauty Recognition technology, just like it's sibling, the F5. In fact this new device shares a lot of its features and design with the original F5 variant, especially in the design department. Here users get the same 6-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio for a more immersive viewing experience.

Of course the F5 Youth has some minor changes compared to the original both in the specs and price department. Two of the most recognizable changes here are the RAM and internal storage sizes. From 4GB, it's down to 3GB RAM and from 64GB, it's now 32GB, but still expandable via microSD card. And then the camera, while it is still sporting the same A.I. Beauty Recognition, the OPPO F5 has slightly lower megapixel counts. On the rear is 13MP and on front is a 16MP selfie shooter.

Some of the details about this device are not fully revealed yet. I am speculating that OPPO Philippines will also hold a launch event at their new concept store at SM Megamall on November 25 and here is where we are to learn more about this new Selfie Expert phone from OPPO.
