Driven by positive response, Chinese device-maker OPPO Mobiles has started selling its mobile photography-focused devices F1 and F1 Plus in Delhi, with Bollywood and Telugu film actress Rhea Chakraborty becoming the first customer to own the "selfie expert".
"I am so thrilled at being the first one to be able to use the 'selfie expert' OPPO F1. I love taking selfies and am sure that my new phone will help me take the best selfies every time I want to," a company statement quoted Chakraborty as saying.
OPPO offers an entire range of camera-phone devices starting from entry level to mid-range smartphones and the company considers Delhi an important maket.
"Delhi is one of the top markets in India in terms of technology adaptation, awareness, 4G connectivity, therefore it is a very important market for OPPO Mobiles and the first sale today is a reflection of our resolution to grow and long term commitment to the Indian market," said Poppy Huang, CEO-Delhi, OPPO Mobiles India.
The F1 features an 8 MP front-facing camera with a wide f/2.0 aperture lens and a 1/4-inch sensor, a sophisticated Pure Image 2.0+ photography platform offering OPPO's Beautify 3.0 feature.
It also sports OPPO's patented Screen Flash to make snapping selfies in low-light conditions, and can shoot selfies using hand gestures and spoken commands. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 series Octa-core processor with 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM.
The F1 Plus sports a 13 MP rear camera along with interesting features like Slow Shutter, Double Exposure and Ultra-HD, the company said, without specifying the price of the devices.
