Oppo launches F1s smartphone with 16 Megapixels selfie camera in India for Rs. 17990
Oppo, China's leading smartphone brand has launched their new smartphone Oppo F1s at an event in Mumbai, India. This is another selfie-focused smartphone from the brand after their highly successful campaigns with F1 and F1 Plus. The selfie features of these Oppo phones along with their high quality design make it a popular brand amongst the youth. Moreover the company has been able to gain number 1 position in China following the sales of F1 and F1 Plus. We only got to spend a few minutes with the phone at the launch event, however we were highly impressed by the selfie camera as well as the strikingly fast fingerprint sensor on the home button. On comparing it with iPhone 6S Plus, we could literally make out how fast the Oppo F1s sensor was from the one on the iPhone. According to the company, the time taken to unlock the phone is 0.22 seconds but we won't mince our words to say, it seems even faster and should arguably be the fastest fingerprint sensor we have ever tested.
