It will also sport an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The camera will be backed by the company’s native PureImage 2.0+ platform, which will feature wide set of modes along with filters. 3GB RAM is also said to come housed inside the camera-focused smartphone.
Other details on the handset’s processor, display, and battery are yet to be revealed. A 5-inch display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC is rumoured for the F1.
Oppo is known for smartphones with rotating cameras and photo-stitching technology. The company was among the first to introduce its N1 handset with rotating camera in 2013.
