UPDATE (October 13, 2017)
OPPO, who is set to unveil the OPPO F5 smartphone, has now set a launch date – November 2. The company has now started sending out invites that mention “Come and ‘Capture the real you’ with OPPO’s s new selfie Expert.” One of the top software features expected on the F5 is the AI-enabled selfie enhancement tool which will come inbuilt with the handset.
Oppo F5 is confirmed to launch on October 26th in the Philippines, but it wasn’t known before whether the device will make it to other countries as well. Now, reportedly, the company has confirmed the availability of the device in many other countries including India. According to a report, the Oppo F5 will launch in Southeast Asia markets including Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam soon.
A number of new images of the device have also surfaced that once again flaunt the FHD+ full-screen display. One of the newly surfaced pictures of the Oppo F5 also confirms that the device will come with AI Beauty Recognition technology for selfies.
This tech is expected to use AI to recognize skin tone and type, the gender, and age to enhance and beautify the image further. This tech will self-learn and do the required enhancements for each image it recognizes.
Reportedly, this AI process will be quite efficient to recognize every person of any age and do the desired enhancements according to the age.
From the images, it’s clear that the Oppo F5 will offer 18:9 display, just as some other handsets in this category. The device has been leaked many times before as well along with some expected specs that say the device could feature a 6-inch screen and powered by Snapdragon 660 processor. There were some rumors that Oppo F5 will come with dual front cameras but the recent pictures and the bunch we are reporting now don’t show such setup at the front, so our best guess is the device will also have a Plus variant that would come with dual cameras on the front.
