OPPO, the Selfie Expert and leader, kick started the sale of its much awaited OPPO F7, the brand's first FHD+ Super Full Screen display model in India featuring the AI Beauty technology 2.0 and an industry's top 25MP front camera, on 9th April, 2018.

OPPO F7 is the first smart phone that brings Artificial Intelligence 2.0 into selfie feature in India with years of R&D. It identifies shapes and facial structures based on a global database and has around 296 facial touch points. Professional photographers and make-up artists were consulted during the R&D process, resulting in the AI technology having the ability to emulate those professional skills that can help selfies look more real and natural. OPPO F7 is the first phone that brings 25MP front camera for its consumer's flawless selfies powered by an Octa core 64-bit Mediatek Helio P60 Processor.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Will Yang, Brand Director, OPPO India, said, "We are extremely elated to offer Indian consumers the industry's first 25MP front camera smartphone with AI beautification 2.0. We appreciate the feedback we have received from all our Indian consumers and have tried to incorporate the same while developing the all new OPPO F7. The brand looks forward to fulfilling all the consumer demands in the future too."

OPPO is a brand that every young person relates with and appreciates for providing great power packed features in one product. For today, it was a pleasure for me to interact with the OPPO Fans as the store manager. With an overall amazing experience with the product, I am sure that the F7 will be everyone's very own Selfie Expert."
The phone comes with a large 3400 mAh battery to support its 6.23-inch screen with an FHD+ display having a resolution of 1080 X 2280. The screen is also protected by a durable scratch resistant glass Corning Gorilla Glass 5. And for the rear camera, the 16MP rear camera is excellent for all day and night shots. The F1.8 aperture in the back camera also performs brilliantly for brighter and more precise shots in darker settings. Based on Android 8.1, ColorOS 5.0 has AI built into the software for better systems management.
The ColorOS 5.0 AI power manager allocates processing power accordingly to the right app, making sure the phone runs at its best. OPPO F7's overall performance has been improved by 80% compared to F5; and supports AI, which is more accurate. Additionally, it also allocates power usage appropriately, extending the average daily usage of battery life, giving its users the best user experience for a selfie camera phone.
