Oppo F5 may have been already revealed for the Philippines market but the company plans to bring it to India as well. Now, if Flipkart's teaser is to be believed then the Oppo F5 may be exclusive to the e-commerce website in the country. The dedicated page for the Oppo F5 confirms that Flipkart will live stream the event on Thursday, may possibly be the exclusive online retailer.
The Oppo F5, successor to the Oppo F3, was launched in China last month. The new Oppo smartphone, much like previous handsets, focuses on selfies and comes with artificial intelligence (AI) beauty technology integrated in the front camera. Following the current trend of smartphones, the all-new Oppo F5 also sports an all-screen front with slim bezels around the display.
The Oppo F5 has been priced at PHP 15,990 (roughly Rs. 20,000) and comes in Gold and Black colours. Another 6GB RAM and 64GB storage variant has been announced in Red colour though the pricing has not been announced so far. We can expect the India pricing of the handset around this point.
Oppo is a selfie-focused smartphone and sports a 20-megapixel sensor at the front that comes with an f/2.0 aperture. At the back is a 16-megapixel rear camera with an f/1.8 aperture and LED flash. The Oppo F5 features a 6-inch TFT display with full-HD+ screen resolution of 1080x2160 pixels. The handset supports dual Nano-SIM cards and packs a separate microSD card slot. The Oppo F5 is powered by an octa-core MediaTek (MT6763T) processor coupled with 4GB/ 6GB RAM. It supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB). The handset runs on the company's ColorOS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 Nougat. It measures 156.5x76x7.5mm and weighs in at 152 grams. It is backed by a 3200mAh battery. Connectivity options include GPS/ A-GPS, GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and USB OTG support.
