OPPO has kickstarted the sale of its much talked-about phone, OPPO F5, with an announcement by the brand’s new ambassador, Bollywood actor, Sidharth Malhotra on Thursday. There was already a lot of buzz surrounding OPPO F5 as it’s the first smartphone in India that brings Artificial Intelligence (AI) to selfies. The phone is able to identify shapes and facial structures based on a global database. It then uses this information to enhance the beauty of your selfies. Living in exciting times, innit?
The phone is priced at Rs 19,990 and you can either buy it offline or head to Flipkart, Amazon, Paytm and Snapdeal. An extensive R&D process went behind the making of this phone during which professional photographers and make-up artists were consulted. The objective was to ensure that the AI technology was able to emulate the skills of these professionals, thus resulting in real and natural selfies.
On the occasion, Will Yang, Brand Director, OPPO India, said, “We are extremely delighted to offer Indian consumers the brand’s first FHD+ full screen display smartphone. We appreciate the feedback we have received from all our Indian consumers and the appreciation of the technology behind the OPPO F5. The brand looks forward to fulfilling all the consumer demands in the future too.”
The phone comes with a 20-megapixel front camera with an ultra-sensitive F2.0 aperture and 1/2.8” sensor. Both these features allow the camera to gain as much information possible about the subject and produce better images even in low-light conditions. This camera also applies a Bokeh effect to the background, making you the focus of the selfie. The 16-megapixel rear camera is brilliant for all day and night shots. And with its F1.8 aperture, this camera gives you brighter and more precise pictures even when the lighting is dark.
