Fresh from its official debut in India, the new OPPO F1 Plus is headed to our country and is expected to make its first local appearance this weekend.
For those of you who are still unfamiliar with the handset, the F1 Plus is a rebadged OPPO R9 that’s meant to be marketed outside of OPPO’s home turf. In short, other than the model name, both the OPPO R9 and the F1 Plus is one in the same, from its specifications down to its impressive feature set.
Primarily touted by OPPO as the “Selfie Expert” the F1 Plus has a 16-megapixel front-mounted camera that has a 1/3.1-inch sensor and an f/2.0 lens for improved low-light performance.
Although the handset’s main feature is its high-resolution front camera, the list of its note-worthy features doesn’t stop there. For one it has a svelte metallic body that only measures 6.6mm, and a 5.5-inch touchscreen panel that is bordered only by a 1.66mm bezels on the side.
Underneath its classy chassis lies a powerful engine comprising of a Helio P10 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM and a massive 64GB inbuilt storage that can be further expanded via a MicroSD card.
