The 16MP front camera, P12,990 OPPO F1s aims to be “the” Selfie Expert phone – and it might just succeed

Midrange pricing, knock out specs, and packed with a more powerful and feature-packed selfie camera – meet the just-launched OPPO F1s. 

While the F1s retains the sleek design of the F1 line – thin body, rounded edges and corners, tiny bezels, and the luxury of white – the front camera in its 5.5-inch screen’d body is really its centerpiece: a 16MP with F2.0 aperture sensor, perfect for selfies, group photos, and video calls. The rear camera is a surely capable (we know so from the F1 Plus) 13MP. All day power is provided by a large 3,075 mAh battery.
