Nowadays, one of the most important things that people consider before buying their next smartphone is the camera. This is why, most of the smartphones boast of the camera – OPPO is no stranger to this, as their first phone to launch this year, sports of being the “Selfie Expert” – the OPPO F1.

OPPO F1 has an 8-megapixel front camera with a f/2.0 aperture. This will be able to capture more light, needed for better quality selfies.

Both the camera’s hardware and software work together as if the OPPO F1 has a built-in styling team that will glam the user up in no time.
