OPPO F5 Now Officially Launched and Priced in the Philippines

Finally, after tons and tons of leaks, rumors, and teasers OPPO has officially launched their most anticipated Selfie Expert installment called the F5. In case you are a bit lost, this newest device directly follows the F3 series that released in the Philippines earlier this year. But with this new offering, a lot has changed especially in the display department.

Speaking of the display, the F5 is OPPO's first smartphone to sport the 18:9 aspect ratio display which is now becoming the standard in the mid-range category of  handsets. With this new feature, there is a massive 6-inch Full HD+ IPS display with a total of 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution across the board. Thanks to its new 18:9 aspect ratio, users will still feel like using a standard 5.5-inch smartphone but with a much bigger and clearer display to look at.

On the inside is a 2.5GHz octa-core Mediatek MT6763 processor paired with a roomy 4GB of RAM right out of the box. Running alongside these powers is the latest ColorOS 3.2 mobile operating system based on the current Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. In terms of storage, users will have 32GB and can be expanded via its own dedicated microSD card slot.

Now for the camera, it is surprising to know that OPPO took away the dual camera setup on this one. Instead, the Chinese electronics giant opted for a single 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and LED flash and another single 20MP front facing camera with f/2.0 lens. And just like the previous iterations in the F series, the F5 is also a selfie centric smartphone. And to enhance the selfie taking experience even higher, OPPO has embedded a new technology in this phone which the company called the A.I. Beauty mode.
