While it was earlier expected to launch one new model, Oppo is now apparently set to launch three variants under its F5 series to fulfil the needs of selfie-obsessed users. All the three variants, namely the Oppo F5, Oppo F5 6GB, and Oppo F5 Youth, are already available for pre-orders in Thailand and are expected to be unveiled at the October 26 event, which is taking place in the Philippines. A poster has been leaked, showcasing the key features of the three new Oppo smartphones.
As per the poster, leaked by Thailand's OppoClub, the upcoming Oppo F5 would be targeted at customers looking for an upgraded selfie experience. The three variants in the range will carry a tagline, which reads "Capture the real you." Additionally, the phones will come preloaded with some artificial intelligence (AI) based tweaks to enhance self-portrait shots.
The original Oppo F5 and the F5 6GB variants in the new range appear to sport dual camera sensors on the front. The Oppo F5 Youth - which is likely to be the most affordable one in the series, on the other hand, seems to come with a single front-facing camera sensor.
Oppo has provided a minimal-bezel display on the F5, as spotted in the poster. The display panel is rumoured to come in 6-inch size and full-HD+ resolution (1080x2160 pixels). Further, the original variant is said to have 4GB of RAM, while the F5 6GB would debut with 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage, alongside microSD card support of up to 256GB.
The Oppo F5 and F5 6GB are so far reported to have a 20-megapixel camera sensor on the rear along with an LED flash, whereas the inferior F5 Youth appears to have a 16-megapixel sensor on the back. Besides, the entire Oppo F5 series will come with features like a rear-facing fingerprint scanner and software-based facial unlock.
Oppo is hosting an event in India post the Philippines launch on October 26 where all the three F5 models are likely to be debuted. The India event is scheduled for November 2. It is presumed to the stage where price and availability of the new selfie-centric smartphones would emerge for Indian buyers.
