- Oppo launches upgraded F1 phone
- High resolution front camera for selfies
The Oppo F1 Plus, launched at an event in Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall last week, is the second device in the photography-focused Selfie Expert series. The event was graced by Instagram celebrity Nora Danish, who has 3.2 million followers on the social network.
The phone features an all-metal unibody, VOOC Flash Charge, fingerprint recognition and what Oppo claims to be a unique technology, the Hi-light Camera.
Oppo says the F1 Plus’ Hi-light Camera is four times more sensitive than standard cameras, has twice the dynamic range, and captures shots with four times less noise, compared to cameras without the technology.
“With the success of F1, we felt the need to push our boundaries further and enhance the selfie experience for Malaysians by providing an upgraded photography-focused phone which is the F1 Plus,” said Oppo Electronics brand manager Chen Lu.
Oppo has also upgraded the F1 Plus’s photo processing algorithms. The included Beautify 4.0 app is optimised to capture selfies with bright, clear skin and beautifully defined facial contours. It also has a 13MP rear camera.
The phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio P10 2.0GHz, eight-core, 64-bit processor. The device also has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space which can be expanded by an additional 128 GB.
Fast charging is another area of pride for Oppo. The VOOC Flash Charge technology in the F1 Plus helps the phone reach a 75% charge after just half an hour.
The Oppo F1 Plus will be available for RM1,899 (US$483) this month.
