The Oppo F5 is essentially successor to the Oppo F3 smartphone having skipped the “4” moniker. As with every Oppo smartphone, the highlight of the Oppo F5 is also its front camera for selfies. In the Oppo F5, the 20-megapixel f/2.0 front camera is powered by artificial intelligence, which examines every angle of your face “to create the perfectly refined and natural selfie”. There’s a beauty-iris tool as well to brighten your eyes. The camera also adjusts lighting according to the background.
In terms of design, the Oppo F5 has gone through a notable change with the absence of the home button. The fingerprint sensor is instead placed at the rear panel. The Oppo F5 is also the first smartphone in the series to feature an 18:9 aspect ratio display. ALSO READ: Oppo F3 Lite with 16-megapixel selfie camera launched: Price, specifications
