Oppo F1 Plus pre-orders kick off in India

Oppo F1 Plus

Oppo had officially launched the F1 Plus in India a few days ago and is now putting the phone up for pre-orders from April 11 to 20. The smartphone is simply a rebranded version of the R9 for international markets and shares its predecessor’s claims of being a selfie expert.

As such, Oppo has blessed the F1 Plus with a 16MP front-facing camera. The unit comes with ISOCELL technology to reduce noise, screen flash to brighten up dark environments, an aperture of f/2.0, and a 78.1-degree wide-angle lens. The company claims it can let in 4 times more light compared to other handsets thanks to a 1/3.1-inch sensor.

On the flip side, the dual-SIM Oppo phone’s 13MP main snapper offers an aperture of f/2.2, 4K video recording capabilities, LED flash and PDAF. The device additionally ships with a fingerprint scanner which can apparently unlock the device within 0.2 seconds. Another major highlight is the handset’s 2850mAh battery.
