Oppo F1 officially launched; Pre-ordering starts in Vietnam

Oppo F1 has now been officially launched by the company. Oppo has already started taking pre-orders in Vietnam for the F1.


As can be seen in the image above, the front of F1 houses an 8MP selfie camera with flash screen (the screen can be used as flash in low-light conditions), and, has capacitive navigation buttons instead of the on-screen ones. The Oppo F1 is powered by 1.7GHz Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor, backed by 3GB of RAM and Adreno 405 GPU.


On the back is the Oppo logo along with 13MP primary camera having LED flash sitting right below it. The rear camera has an aperture of f/2.2 and also supports Phase Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF).


On the left is the volume rocker. The Oppo F1 runs on ColorOS 2.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It boasts off a 5-inch Full-HD IPS display having the protection of Gorilla Glass 4.


The right side houses the power button and the hybrid SIM slot. The F1 comes loaded with 16GB of internal storage and the external storage can be expanded up to 128GB using the microSD card. Although, the F1 supports external storage, the microSD card will have to be put in the slot meant for second SIM card. Which means you either use two SIM with no external storage, or, you use one SIM with the ability to expand the external storage.
