Oppo F1s lands in India with insane 16MP selfie camera and affordable price
As was the case with the older F1, Oppo markets the F1s as "The Selfie Expert", and looking at the specs of the secondary camera on the front, it's easy to see why: the Oppo F1s integrates a 16MP selfie camera with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an aperture of f/2.0.
On the software side, selfies can be enhanced through Oppo's Selfie Beautification 4.0 system. Furthermore, the handset comes with a Selfie Panorama mode as well as a range of filters. While potentially useful, it should be noted that these are common software features for a modern smartphone.
The Oppo F1s comes with a high-resolution 16MP selfie shooter
Selfie camera aside, the Oppo F1s specs are mid-range ones. The display, for one, is a 5.5-inch panel running at a rather modest resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, which is good for a PPI density of x. The chipset of choice, the Mediatek MT6750 chipset, is another mid-range component, integrating a 1.5GHz octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU.
All of these specs are powered by a 3075mAh battery. Given the relatively low power consumption of the chipset and the display, a full charge should last through a day of moderate use.
The Oppo F1s is priced at around INR 18,000 or about $270 at the current exchange rates. Unfortunately, if you're tempted by Oppo's second-gen "Selfie Expert", we have some bad news for you: the Oppo F1s is not likely to ever reach the US through official channels and importing a unit from Asia can lead to carrier compatibility problems.
What do our US readers think, would anyone be interested in getting their hands on a $270 smartphone with a 16MP selfie shooter?
