OPPO Launches New Fastest Fingers First Feature with latest “Selfie Expert” OPPO F1s
· Lightning-quick fingerprint reader features fingerprint-activated calling and app-launch
· Triple-slot card tray that offers dual-SIM and expandable memory
· 16MP front camera with large f/2.0 aperture
· 32 GB Memory and 3 GB RAM, competitively priced at SGD 399
Singapore, August 5th, 2016 — OPPO will launch the OPPO F1s, the latest addition to their line of selfie-focused phones in Singapore, on 6 August 2016. Competitively priced at SGD 399, the selfie phone will feature a host of innovative features, such as its multi-purpose fingerprint reader, which allows you to program your unique fingerprints to launch and access your phone and apps in a flash.
Inheriting the “Selfie Expert” title from its predecessor, the F1, OPPO’s latest mid-range smartphone raises the bar with a 16 MP front camera and a large f/2.0 aperture – and shows the brand’s commitment to bringing great cameras to smartphone users at all price points. Along with its standout front shooter, the F1s sports a 13 MP rear camera, a large 3075mAh battery, 32GB ROM, 3GB RAM and a triple-slot card tray that offers dual-SIM capability and expandable memory.
“The F1 has been a hugely popular product since its launch, and in the F1s, we’re building on its key strengths to bring an even better photography experience to a wide range of consumers,” said Sky Li, OPPO Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business. “More than ten million consumers are enjoying the F1 and the R9, and we’re confident the F1s is going to carry on this success to become another hit product.”
The F1s is the latest example of OPPO’s commitment to innovation and creating an outstanding mobile photography experience for its consumers. From pioneering the use of a beautify feature on smartphone cameras in 2011, the brand also introduced the world’s first smartphone with a rotating camera, 2013’s N1. With the F1s, OPPO aims to continue to capture even more hearts and memories.
Lightning-Fast Touch Access, New Fingerprint-Activated App Launch
The F1s also features a home-button fingerprint reader capable of unlocking the phone in a mere 0.22s – easily one of the fastest readers in its price category.
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. By using different fingers to unlock the phone, the pre-set app or phone call will start automatically, saving precious minutes and seconds scrolling through the contact or apps.

The Art of the Selfie
As the new “Selfie Expert”, the F1s is purpose-built to capture beautiful, natural-looking selfies, and it is the first phone to bring a 16 MP front camera to the price segment. The 16 MP 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 and vivid shots.
Both the front and rear cameras offer Beautify 4.0, providing seven levels of beautification and two skin tone modes, so that users can find the perfect settings for their look. Beautification algorithms have been updated based on feedback from hundreds of real-life users.
The F1s’ sophisticated photography platform offers 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.
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, the fast, 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%.
In addition, ColorOS 3.0 automatically cleans up background apps for improved battery efficiency and performance, while a customizable Privacy Protection feature and Avast-based virus scanner keep users’ valuable data safe.
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 simulates non-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.
Sleek, Eye-Catching Design
OPPO never lets users down when it comes to design. The F1s features a 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen, with a pre-applied protective screen coating, giving a premium look without sacrificing premium durability. Two slender lines flow across the phone’s aluminum alloy back, giving it a sleek, effortless distinction.
The F1s will come in two colours in Singapore, Gold and Rose Gold (date TBC).
