Oppo India on Thursday launched the Oppo F1s Diwali Limited Edition smartphone. Sporting the same Rs. 17,990 price tag as the original, the smartphone will go up for pre-orders from Oppo Concept Stores from October 8 to October 13, and will go up for sale on October 14 via Snapdeal.
The Oppo F1s Diwali Limited Edition smartphone is identical in terms of specifications with the original Oppo F1s smartphone that was launched in India in August. However, it features a redesigned rear panel with a 'gilded Diwali pattern' or a flame, alongside signatures from brand ambassadors Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor. The limited edition smartphone comes with Diwali Elements theme that bears special icons amongst other changes.
The Oppo F1s sports a 16-megapixel front-facing camera with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and f/2.0 aperture, certainly the highlight of the smartphone. Other selfie-focused features on the smartphone include its Beautify 4.0 app for selfie editing, the Selfie Panorama feature that stitches together three selfies, and the Screen Flash feature.
