Finally, the guessing game is over! To end the speculations, OPPO made two revelations earlier: the ‘new face of the selfie expert’ that features OPPO F1s Limited in metallic grey color and the unveiling of OPPO’s new brand ambassador Kapuso heartthrob Alden Richards.
Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said:
We are thrilled to welcome Alden Richards to our growing OPPO family; we can’t wait to see how Alden will help us redefine our selfie-taking experiences.”
Making waves since it’s launched in August, the new smartphone has been such a hit after selling 19,000 units in just three days all over the country.
Alden Richards expressed his excitement to work with OPPO, the Philippine’s second best selling smartphone brand according to a report by German-based market research firm GfK:
Selfies capture life’s most unforgettable moments in a very spontaneous way. I’m proud to be part of a family that celebrate those special moments.”
Richards is the other half of the phenomenal power couple AlDub, who stars in a segment of long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga. The love team generated a record-breaking number of tweets last March in one of their episodes, a feat recognized by the Guinness World Records during the tenth anniversary of micro-blogging site Twitter.
The selfie expert
Tagged as the ‘selfie expert’, the OPPO F1s has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera that can snap selfies even in dim light, thanks to its large aperture. It also helps users achieve a flawless look through its upgraded beautifying app, Beautify 4.o.
Apart from static selfies, the F1s can create moving images using its Super GIF feature, as well as double exposure shots that juxtapose two images into one photo to create a sense of motion.
Lighting-fast fingerprint recognition also unlocks the phone in 0.22 seconds. Five fingerprints can be assigned to five contacts or applications for quick access.
The F1s is currently available in gold and rose gold. Concept and dealer stores nationwide will take pre-orders of F1s Limited starting today until November 11. Pre-orders can also be placed through the online shop Lazada. Customers who made the pre order will also receive an exclusive set of VR and selfie stick for free.
