Oppo F1 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution and Gorilla Glass 4 protection which is currently the strongest smartphone screen in the industry. The phone is powered by an octa-core 2.0 GHz Mediatek Helio P10 processor which works alongside an impressive 4GB of RAM.
The phone offers a maximum internal storage of 64GB but one of its dual-SIM slots also doubles up as a microSD slot offering up to 128GB of additional storage. The battery also packs 2,850 mAh of power and the phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop OS out of the box. However, there is no confirmation on whether the phone will receive the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS in the near future.
The principle feature of the F1 Plus is its front camera which packs an hitherto-unknown resolution of 16 megapixels. The front camera lens also features an f/2.0 aperture which allows four times as much light as ordinary lenses and makes use of ISOCELL technology as well which reduces interference between pixels by as much as 30 per cent.
The rear camera also packs a decent 13MP punch and features an LED Flash, auto-focus and an f/2.3 aperture. The phone also offers a quick charging solution named VOOC Flash Charge which can charge it from 0 to 75 per cent in just 30 minutes.
Oppo F1 Plus costs Rs 26,990 in India which translates to roughly £286 as per current exchange rates. This makes it a fairly capable mid-ranger and it will offer a great alternative to fellow under-£300 phones currently retailing in the UK.
Oppo has been in the news for regularly launching fairly capable smartphones at reasonable prices. Back in October, it launched the Neo 7 which cost around a mere £100 and offered Android Lollipop OS out of the box, 8MP and 5MP cameras, a 5-inch display, 16GB of storage and a 1GB RAM. The phone also featured Snapdragon 410 chip, microSD expansion slot, a non-removable 2,420mAh battery and a rear glass panel.
