OPPO F1 Plus with 16 MP front camera to be launched in India on April 5

OPPO India has sent out media invites for the launch of a new ‘Selfie Expert+’ smartphone on April 5, 2016. While most other tech portals think that the company would be launching the OPPO R9 and R9 Plus in India, we believe it will be the OPPO F1 Plus, which was officially introduced in the country on January 28 along with the launch of ‘Selfie Expert’, the OPPO F1.


While many teasers from OPPO India indicate that it will be the OPPO R9 and R9 Plus, which were recently launched in China but we have come across a post on Facebook (likely to be from a distributor) which says otherwise. It clearly mentions the F1 Plus which rocks a 16 megapixel front-facing camera. However, it is very likely that OPPO might also launch the R9 and R9 Plus in the country, along with the F1 Plus.


OPPO F1 Plus Specifications

The OPPO F1 Plus features a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD IPS display that is protected by 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4. The phablet is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 (Quad 1.2 GHz Cortex A53 + Quad 1.5 GHz Cortex A53) 64-bit processor along with Adreno 405 GPU. It has 4 GB of RAM and comes with 32 GB of internal memory which can be expanded up to 128 GB via microSD card. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with the latest ColorOS 2.1 custom skin on top of it.

The F1 Plus houses a 13 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, f/2,2 aperture, which can shoot Full HD 1080p videos. On the front, it comes with a 16 megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture and 78.1-degree wide-angle lens for your selfies and video calling. It has Hybrid Dual SIM (Micro + Nano) support where the second nano SIM slot can be used as a microSD card slot.

The F1 Plus includes 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS as connectivity options. There is no information about the battery capacity yet.
