In the last couple of months, OPPO hasn’t launched any new smartphones except the OPPO A71 in the international markets. On the other hand, Vivo has recently unveiled its first smartphone with an 18:9 display called as Vivo V7 Plus in India. Later Vivo also launched Vivo X20 and X20 Plus with the same display technology, but these devices additionally came with dual rear cameras and slightly powerful specifications. Following the other major manufacturers, OPPO will soon unveil the new OPPO F5, the company’s first smartphone with an 18:9 display.
Now, the device is revealed by the Philippines brand ambassadors of OPPO who received it as a gift. The device shown in their Instagram videos completely reveal the design of the rear. It comes in Black color metal body with a Golden ring around the fingerprint sensor and rear camera. Even the OPPO logo present on the rear of the device is in Golden hue. The OPPO F5 will be officially launched in India and other Asian markets in October. However, there is no confirmation about the same from the company. Several billboards and hoardings featuring the OPPO F5 are spotted in South Asian countries.
While the OPPO smartphones come with a physical home button on the front featuring a fingerprint sensor, the upcoming OPPO F5 features it on the rear. It clearly hints about the device sporting an 18:9 display on the front. The OPPO F5 comes with only a single camera sensor on the rear, but there will be a dual camera setup on the front. On the other hand, the recently launched Vivo X20 and X20 Plus came with a dual camera setup on the rear and the front camera is only limited to a single camera.
