Oppo F1s Diwali Limited Edition officially unveiled
We're still three weeks away from Diwali festival, but Chinese company Oppo wants to allow customers to ready their wallets for its next product, the F1s Diwali Limited Edition. The smartphone has just been introduced in India and will go on sale next week.
You're probably aware due to the name of the smartphone, Oppo F1s Diwali Limited Edition won't be released in other countries, so it will remain an Indian affair. The device will be available for pre-order between October 8 and October 13 via Oppo Concept Stores.
Next week, on October 14, the smartphone will hit shelves at major retailer Snapdeal, and customers will be able to pick it up for just Rs 17,990, which is about $270.
Specs-wise, the F1s Diwali Limited Edition is the same smartphone as the original model, which was launched in India back in August. But if you don't remember anything about the device, here is a quick recap to refresh your memory.
First of all, Oppo's mid-range smartphone sports a 5.5-inch display that support HD (720p) resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass 4 coating for extra protection. Under the hood, there's a decent octa-core MediaTeck MT6750 processor, complemented by a Mali-T860 MP2 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM.
On the back, the phone packs a 13-megapixel photo snapper with phase-detection autofocus, dual-LED flash and f/2.2 aperture, while in the front there's an impressive 16-megapixel selfie camera with 1/3.1-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
There are 32GB of storage inside, which can be further expanded via microSD card slot. The phone is powered by a 3,075 mAh battery and runs Oppo's ColorOS 3.0 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The only difference between the limited edition model and the original is the design of the rear side of the former, which features a “gilded Diwali pattern” or a flame. Also, the Oppo F1s Diwali Limited Edition phone comes with signatures from brand ambassadors Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor, as well as some Diwali Elements theme inside the software.
