A few short days before its official launch, the Oppo F1s release was overtaken by leaks. Techies awaiting the gadget’s arrival now have a first look of the younger Oppo device.
A known technology website in India was first to report on the leaks. However, aside from photos, the said website also reported on the specs and a potential price. According to the site, the Oppo F1s could cost Rs 17,999 or a bit more than 355 AUD. As per the US dollar equivalent, the price tag is close to 270 USD.
It’s still unclear as to how price would vary depending on locations. However, the thing that’s constant about the device are the specs and Tech Droid also got a list of it.
The Oppo F1s, much like its higher-end predecessors, prides itself with its cameras. With this, the device packs a 13-megapixel rear camera. This is quite a disappointment since early rumors suggested that the device is packing a 16-megapixel main camera.
Nevertheless, Tech Droid details that the front-facing camera remains as a 16-megapixel shooter. This makes the front camera higher-powered than its main. The reversal of pixel capacity is consistent with the device’s “Selfie Expert” term. However, those looking forward to the device who is not after the selfie feature will be disappointed.
Other specs of the Oppo F1s detailed by Tech Droid are as follows:
1. Device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop
2. Device powered by 1.5GHz 64-bit Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor
3. Device measures 154.5 x 76 x 7.38mm and weighs 160 grams
Oppo F1s release
August 3 marks the official launch of the Oppo F1s. However, the actual date as to when users get the device varies per locale. Tech Droid mentions that the device starts pre-order availability in India on August 4. Hence, other places could also get the device on the same date or close to it.
As of this writing, the F1s is not yet on the official Oppo website. Also, no dedicated page was launched yet. In addition, their Where to Buy section doesn’t return any results yet for the F1s.
