In a strong marketing fight versus Vivo, Oppo has used a non-usual but conventional strategy in order to promote and make buzz about its upcoming smartphone – using famed celebrities and partnering with giant TV networks like ABS-CBN, letting them use the Oppo F5 on the highly-anticipated Star Magic Ball (which marks the first appearance of the Oppo F5 into the public eye).
Since that appearance, we already got so many leaks and teasers, as well as renders on how will the F5 look like, and based on those photos from our beloved celebrities and the on-going campaigns on their social media pages, we gathered all the vital details here on our Despatch entry about the OPPO F5, which is set to be revealed on October 26th as confirmed by Julia Baretto herself!
18:9 Display, No Fancy Dual Cameras
Based on this makeup tutorial video from ABS-CBN lifestyle, Metro Magazine Beauty Editor Kate Paras talked about the notable looks during the recently-concluded Star Magic Ball.
Oval Fingerprint sensor at the back
What we noticed from the video is that the F5 will sport an 18:9 display as well as single cameras, both front and rear, as well as new oval-shaped fingerprint sensor placement which you can find on most smartphones with 18:9 displays.
Like the vivo V7+, the OPPO F5 has the bezels minimized on its sides while maintaining its top and bottom bezels fair enough to balance design.
Rumored Specifications and Pricing
Although we get so many leaks in terms of design, there’s no official information about the specs just yet. There’s no word about the pricing as of this moment, too.
As GizChina says, rumored specs for the OPPO F5 include a 6-inch Full HD 18:9 display, 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 660 Processor, 64GB internal storage, and a whopping 4000mAh battery. It is also said that the cameras might be bumped up to 16MP and 20MP for both to get that selfie-expert title back.
But of course, these are still piece of rumors – so we’re going to know the rest soon when its already launched!
