Oppo F1 Lands In Australia
Oppo is slowly but surely expanding its reach. The Chinese tech company is set to launch its second mobile phone in Australia. The newest smartphone that is destined for the Australian soil is called the Oppo F1 and is set to start selling through limited retailers by next week.Advertisement
ZDNet reports that the Chinese smartphone maker has announced its Oppo F1 device, hoping to finally cement its position in the mid-market sector of the industry. The move might also be a way for the Chinese company to catch up and try to gain grounds on decreasing sales currently being experienced by the smartphone industry.
The latest aluminum offering of Oppo is priced at $299 AUD. F1 will be having a 5-inch 720p display that has a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection. It will be running operating system ColorOS 2.1 which is based on Android 5.1, on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor along with Adreno 405 GPU.
Oppo F1, according to Android Australia, also comes with 3GB RAM, an internal storage of 16GB expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The latest dual SIM Oppo phone will be powered by a 2,500 mAh battery.
The aluminum device sports a 13-megapixel rear shooter with Flash Shot Technology and an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter with a wide f/2.0 aperture and 1/4-inch sensor for improved lightning. The camera comes with the Pure Image 2.0+ camera software.
It could be recalled that last year, the Chinese phone maker first launched in Australia after signing a deal with telecommunications company Optus, which involves the latter selling Oppo’s R7 phone. The high-end phone has a 5-inch 1080p super AMOLED screen.
Oppo R7 runs an Android 4.4-based version of ColorOS on a Snapdragon 615 processor. It boasts 3GB RAM plus an 8-megapixel front shooter with auto-focusing and anti-shake features. The phone also comes with a rapidly charging battery.
Oppo F1 is available through Oppo’s online store as well as several other retailers including Move and Dick Smith.
