OPPO F7 Now Official With Php17,990 Price Tag


The new AI-equipped Selfie Expert handset from OPPO has finally arrived in the Philippines! The F7 is now officially launched in the country bearing a price tag of only Php17,990. And yes, it is equipped with the infamous notch up its screen, just like may other flagship and midrange Android smartphones nowadays.

Design

The OPPO F7 is beautifully designed, especially the Solar Red version. Both front and back faces are covered with glass panels with the front being protected by the tough Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Speaking of the front panel, the F7 sports a massive 6.23-inch display with 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ FullScreen display. The bezels are extremely thin making most of the front panel dominated by nothing but the Full HD+ display screen.

Camera

Like the previous OPPO smartphones that we have seen, this F7 still focuses on providing users the best possible selfie photos through its innovative front facing camera. The OPPO F7 is built with a whopping 25MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. What's more is, it is also equipped with the company's very own AI Beauty Technology which is capable of tracing almost 300 facial points to produce an enhanced yet the most real-you selfie photos. This is a newest AI Beauty version which according to OPPO can now apply the AI Beautification up to 4 faces at once. On the rear is a 16MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture and PDAF.

Hardware

Helping the OPPO F7's front camera process those AI-assisted selfie photos is the latest Mediatek Helio P60 which is specially created to work with AI features on devices such as this one. Paired with this chipset is a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU and a roomy 4GB RAM for the smoothest and fastest navigation experience.

Storage wise, there will be a 64GB internal space (with 128GB variant appears to be coming in the near future). This device still supports microSD card though its own dedicated slot with up to 256GB in size.

Security

Apart from the usual passcode and pattern security features, the OPPO F7 is still equipped with the Fingerprint Scanner beautifully and perfectly located on the back panel. There is also another one which is called Facial Unlock that users can set up in case they prefer it this way. Honestly, I am not a fan of this particular unlocking feature, but in the cases that my prints or fingers are not available such as wearing gloves or simply too dirty to be used on the screen, I guess this facial unlock will come very handy.
