The Oppo F5 is the latest selfie-focused smartphone from the company which already has a number of phones claiming to offer best selfies. The latest member of the family was announced in India earlier today while it made its global debut last week in the Philippines. The highlighting feature of the smartphone is its front-camera and bezel-less “Fullview” display.
The Oppo F5 features a 20-megapixel front camera which is powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to help you click better selfies along with a 1/2.8″ sensor with f/2.0 aperture. It is also capable of offering Bokeh effect to selfies which is again possible with the help of AI support. On the back, you will find a 16-megapixel camera with f/1.8 aperture and dual-LED flash.
Oppo explains the implemented AI technology as:
“Put your best face forward by relying on the unique facial feature optimization technology showcased in the F5. With more than 200 positioning spots, the F5 accentuates your facial landmarks and contours to enhance the symmetry between features like your eyes, nose, cheekbones, and jawline to create the perfectly refined and natural selfie. Its beauty-iris tool ensures that your eyes will shine brighter in any photo.”
