The Oppo F1 is the first device in Oppo's new camera-centric smartphone series


If you've ever heard of the Oppo N and Oppo Find smartphone series, then you already know that the company has a background in camera-centric innovations. Building on what seems to be an affinity for smartphone photography, Oppo announced today the F series, a new range of smartphones that will bring premium-tier camera quality to mid-range, affordable devices.

Unfortunately, while Oppo has announced some details about this new F series, the company has yet to disclose the full details regarding the Oppo F1, the first smartphone in the new range. The teaser image that the company published alongside a formal but minimalistic announcement shows a smartphone with a slim, metallic build, but does not reveal the full design of the handset. Furthermore, no word has been shared on the hardware specifications of the F1.

Here's what Oppo Vice President Sky Li had to say about the new F series of smartphones:


Judging on the words used in this statement, the Oppo F series is not likely to integrate high-end smartphone specs. Instead, there's a good chance that the Oppo F1 will approach the booming mid-range smartphone market.

When you think about it, bringing high-end camera features to mid-range smartphones makes a lot of sense. Many smartphone users would definitely like to get their hands on a capable camera without having to pay the premium price of a high-end smartphone.

At the moment, Oppo is keeping silence when it comes to the price of the Oppo F1, but the company said that the phone will launch in markets across the globe by the end of the month. As such, more details about this new camera-centric smartphone series from Oppo are expected to surface online - through either official or unofficial channels - in the upcoming weeks. Who knows, we might even get to see the smartphone on the CES floor this week in Las Vegas.

I really don't like Oppo's new direction. They used the be a brand for the Android enthousiast with phones like the Find 5 and Find 7 but since then they've only focused on overpriced good looking midrangers. I hope the Find 9 will see the light of day and be a return to form but I doubt it.

Agreed. They've lost what made them popular, and made stupid gimmicks like the N series, cheap feeling low end phones. The R series is pretty much the only compelling product they make, but its priced way too high for what it offers .

look like they trying to battle with samsung mid-ranger (A series), but their brand isnt that famous, and they just cant rival samsung yet.. and their camera isnt that great actually, is still far below pureX and V10

"Many smartphone users would definitely like to get their hands on a capable camera without having to pay the premium price of a high-end smartphone." We spec seekers are not the majority.

And I hope they are ditching ColorOS and put Project Spectrum in it. My 7a is glorious with the new Spectrum.

Perfections Seen The Oppo F1 has now been seen with all the perfections launched in the first week of February. The best is always seen with the Oppo Team but they are now with the latest perfections and they are the warrantee period is extended upto 2 years and the second most important is it comes with the replacement guarantee of 30 days. But this smart phone is such an awesome smart device that you won’t replace it anyhow.

“We Follow” We will follow the Oppo F1 in order to search for the best smart device. The smart device is so called the smart if the device has got 2 years warrantee and 30 days replacement guarantee. This comes with the best camera and the RAM of 3 GB.

“Selfie Expert Rocks” I purchased the Oppo F1 for my daughter who is constantly busy with clicking of the photos and playing pranks in my smart phone. I gave her a gift on her 15th birthday and she is really thankful for the heavenly gift I have given her. But as the child plays with the cell phone she was busy playing and it was fallen from her hand. She couldn’t handle and the screen broke. Thanks to Oppo team for giving the best configuration of 2 years of warranty.

“Reliability Is Suspected” I am always scared of having the smart device that I would love. It is always hard for me to have something that will attract me. Thus, I saw Oppo F1 in social networking sites and I saw that the Oppo F1 has got 2 years of warranty. In other smart phones you get warranty of 1 year and that is common but to get the warranty of 2 years is hardly seen.

“The Basic Quality” The most basic quality that a person searches from the smart device is warranty and guarantee. The highest guarantee is found from the Oppo F1 of 30 days replacement. Now it was quite shocking for me to see that the guarantee and the warranty, highest are found from the Oppo F1 only. 2 years of warranty is found from it.

I purchased Oppo F1 last month with the motto of the color OS and camera of the best features. The camera of 13 megapixel glorifies the photos like 50 megapixels. Love Oppo F1.

“Compensate Your Investment” I purchased Oppo F1 for my sister-in-law. The Oppo F1 has strengthened our relation with the gift I chose for her. The features like 13 megapixel of camera works like 50 megspixel camera. The warranty of 2 years and 30 days of replacement guarantee is awesome. Thanks Oppo F1 for strengthening my relations.

“World’s Best Phone” The Oppo F1 plus and vivo v3 max do not matter much. Both the phones have got smart features but the smart features found in the Oppo F1 plus is not found anywhere like the panorama mode in the phone is the best feature for giving classic look to your phone that is not found in vivo v3 max.

“Technical Efforts” I wanted to purchase the best phone and really made me get in the process of analysis. I had just found out that phones really need to be smart because cells are even found in the games. The color Os really makes difference. This difference is found when you use an android phone and a color OS really makes the difference in giving smartness to the phone. This all things like color OS is found only in Oppo F1 plus. Seriously the color Os makes oppo phones different.
