The ever-evolving Camera Phone brand OPPO launched the F1s globally, moments ago, introducing another device to its photography-focused F series.
The F1s carries on the “Selfie Expert” title of its predecessor, the F1, raising the bar with a 16 MP front camera and a next-level feature set.
Priced at Rs. 29,999 only, the F1s steps up the selfie revolution, bringing OPPO’s leading photography technology to an even wider range of consumers.
Along with its standout front shooter, the F1s sports a 13MP rear camera, a lightning-fast fingerprint reader, a large 3075 mAh battery, 32GB ROM, and a triple-slot card tray that offers dual-4G/LTE SIM capability and expandable memory.
The F1s will hit Pakistan, as well as greater South Asia region and Southeast Asia region, with other markets to follow.
The Art of the Selfie
As the new “Selfie Expert”, the F1s is purpose-built to capture beautiful, natural-looking selfies, and it’s the first phone to bring a 16 MP front camera to the price segment. The 16MP Beautify camera comes equipped with a 1/3.1-inch sensor and large f/2.0 aperture, providing high dynamic range and minimizing noise.
Combining these specs with OPPO’s unique processing algorithms allows the F1s to capture vivid selfies with superb depth and detail. The device also features an upgraded Screen Flash function, which dynamically adjusts to compensate for current light conditions, ensuring users can capture beautiful selfies even in low light.
The F1s features a 13MP rear camera with a 1/3-inch back-illuminated sensor and f/2.2 aperture, for high light sensitivity and dynamic range. With these features and PDAF, the F1s seamlessly captures crisp, clear, vivid shots.
The F1s’ sophisticated photography platformoffers a host of practical features. Adding to the rear camera’s panorama mode is a Selfie Panorama feature up front, ensuring that users will get the whole party in the shot. Meanwhile, selfies can be automatically activated with the wave of a hand or simply by saying “Cheese!”, leaving users free to get their shots just right and avoid the unwanted shake caused by pressing the shutter button
Users also have endless possibilities for creativity and fun with nine built-in filters and watermarks, along with a host of plug-ins, including an upgraded Expert Mode, Double Exposure, Time Lapse and GIF.
Fast Touch Access, New Fingerprint-Activated App Launch
The F1s also features a home-button fingerprint reader, which can unlock the phone in a mere 0.22s, easily one of the fastest fingerprint reader’s in the price segment.
The fingerprint reader is also the key to a brand-new feature: fingerprint-activated calling and app launch. Users can assign five different fingerprints to applications and contacts of their choice. Then, by using different fingers to unlock the phone, the pre-set app or phone call will start automatically, saving users the inconvenience of finding names in a contact list or looking for an app among dozens of icons.

Smooth, Snappy, Long-Lasting Performance
The F1s cruises on an octa-core 64-bit processor with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM. With the all-new triple-slot tray, users can throw in two separate 4G SIM cards and a memory card of up to 128 GB, helping to achieve work-life balance and giving plenty of flexibility for talk and data plans.
On the firmware front, thefast, smooth and snappy ColorOS 3.0 will keep F1s users happily multitasking. On ColorOS 3.0, hundreds of the most common usage scenarios have been painstakingly optimized for superb speed and performance. Compared with ColorOS 2.1 on the F1, operating speed has increased by more than 30%.
The F1s packs a large 3075 mAh battery, whose performance is boosted by ColorOS 3.0’s state-of-the-art power-saving optimizations. In a test that simulatesnon-stop real-world use with a mechanical arm, the F1s coasted through 14 hours, meaning it will easily keep users going from dawn until dusk.
