Sample shot using bokeh feature on the normal selfie camera of the OPPO F1 Limited Red Edition. Notice the smooth blurring of the background and how smooth the author’s face is. We assure you his face is not that smooth in real life.

As we wrote previously:

The OPPO F3 also comes in Black and is designed to be a complete upper midrange all-in-one package: its front camera captures normal selfies but its secondary wide angle front camera takes groufies without a selfie stick; its 4GB of RAM ensures fluid launching of and switching between apps; its generous 64GB of internal storage means you have enough space for apps and pics and vids; and its 5.5-inch Full HD protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 offers a sharp and colorful viewing experience.
