The current Oppo F1’s has a great deal going for it, as is an extremely price-friendly (it costs just £169) choice for people who take a lot of selfies. Running on a Snapdragon 616 and 3GB of RAM, it has a 13MP camera on the back, paired with a high-spec 8MP f/2.0 front cam. There’s a screen flash to light up your fizzog when you’ve turned the camera on yourself, as well as the complexion-enhancing Beautify 3.0 software and a bunch of helpful filters.
Other F1 specs include a ColorOS 2.1 UI on top of Android Lollopop 5.1 and a 5in 1280 x 720 HD IPS screen, and unlike most budget-friendly handsets it’s constructed of anodised aluminium. It’s just 7.3mm thick, too, so it doesn’t stretch the seams of your skinny jean pockets.
What’ll be different in the F1s? Well, Oppo is keeping the specifics under wraps for now, but if we had to guess we’ll probably see a processor upgrade, perhaps more RAM and an upgraded rear camera sensor – likely with 4K video recording and faster phase detection autofocus. Oppo may also replace the front-facing camera with a 16MP f/2.0 snapper, as it did on the F1 Plus model it quietly released in April.
