OPPO is gearing to launch its first ever full-screen device, the OPPO F5, on November 20th in Kenya.
The device that was launched in other markets recently will sport a ‘full-screen design’ with a full-HD+ resolution, which means the OPPO F5 will feature a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio – something most flagships are yet to offer locally stating that the “Full-screen era is here” in Kenya.
A statement sent with the official image confirms that the F5 will sport thin bezels and will have no navigation keys at the front.
The upcoming OPPO F5 will be promoted as the new “Selfie Expert and Leader, “by the company.
The statement also states that the device will also feature the Artificial Intelligence – enabled selfie beautification which is likely to also be the biggest highlight of the handset despite having other attractive features and a face recognition.
“The Selfie Expert and Leader will feature the groundbreaking AI Beauty technology – which uses artificial intelligence from a massive global photo database to beautify a selfie shot. This will be the first time; the AI technology has been integrated into selfies by a camera phone brand in Kenya.” The company release said ahead of the launch.
For the camera, the F5 will boast 20-megapixel single camera setup at the front which is said to work in conjunction with the AI, thus a tagline that said, “Capture the real you” implying that the front camera has an improved sensor.
The new teaser from OPPO also reveals that the F5 will come in variant colours.
OPPO is a camera phone brand enjoyed by young people around the world.
For the last ten years, OPPO has been focusing on manufacturing camera phones, while innovating mobile photography technology breakthroughs. OPPO started the era of selfie beautification and was the first brand to launch smartphones with 5MP and 16MP front cameras. OPPO was also the first brand to introduce the motorized rotating camera, the Ultra HD feature and the 5x Dual Camera Zoom technology. OPPO’s Selfie Expert F series launched in 2016 drove a selfie trend in the smartphone industry.
In 2016, OPPO was ranked as the number 4 smartphone brand globally, according to IDC. And today, OPPO provides excellent smartphone photography experience to more and more young people around the world.
