Our Hands-On OPPO F5 Preview
The OPPO F5 smartphone features an almost bezel-less FHD+ display with a 2:1 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1080 x 2160. For easier unlocking, the F5 comes with a new Facial Unlock feature, as well as a rear fingerprint sensor.
The OPPO F5 also boasts a 20 MP front camera with the latest AI Beauty Recognition technology that, OPPO promises, will take selfie photography to a whole new level by personalising beautification.
Before we take a closer look at its key features, let’s take a quick tour in this OPPO F5 preview video!
AI Beauty Recognition
OPPO’s AI Beauty Recognition technology gathers information and learns the specific facial features of different people from its global image database of human faces. Professional photographers and make-up artists were consulted during the R&D process to help make selfies look more attractive.
The OPPO AI Beauty Recognition technology is able to recognize the subjects’ skin tone and type, gender and age, match them against its database and subsequently make beautification enhancements that are personalized for each individual in the selfie. With more than 200 facial feature spots scanned, the AI Beauty Recognition technology is able to detect your face in detail and refine your selfie.
High Resolution Cameras
The OPPO F5 features a 20MP front camera with f/2.0 lens, and a 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 lens. OPPO claims that the F5’s cameras will deliver better photo quality than their competitor’s 13MP or 16MP camera in the same price range.
First OPPO Full-Screen FHD+ Smartphone
The F5 is OPPO’s first 6.0″ full-screen FHD+ display device, with a 1080 x 2160 screen in the 2:1 aspect ratio.
The OPPO F5 comes with Facial Unlock, the new face recognition technology that will recognize its user and unlock the phone. If the user prefers to use the fingerprint unlock function, the fingerprint reader is now on the back of the phone, giving way to a full front screen.
