Oppo Launches Youth Edition of F5 in India

F5 Youth comes with a 6-inch full-HD+ LTPS TFT display with a resolution of 1080x2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.

Oppo has launched its F5 Youth smartphone in India. This model was announced at the launch of the F5 in the country last month. Oppo F5 Youth is a new variant of the F5, a bezel-less, selfie-centric phone. The Youth edition was first released in the Philippines in November. This edition is a toned-down version of the Oppo F5 in terms of the RAM, in-built storage and cameras. The remaining specifications are identical to the Oppo F5.

Oppo probably realized it must cater to the more tech-savvy youth in India, who are often price sensitive. F5 Youth is, therefore, priced lower than the F5. It is available at Rs.16,990, while Oppo F5 has a starting price of Rs.18,299. Both models highlight AI for selfies.

F5 Youth goes on sale in India today. The smartphone is available in two colours, black and gold, and can be purchased online and offline across the country. The company has not announced any launch offers as yet.

F5 Youth comes with a 6-inch full-HD+ LTPS TFT display with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 processor along with 3GB RAM. The Youth edition’s in-built storage of 32GB is expandable up to 256GB through a microSD card. To recall, the Oppo F5 is available in two variants. Its 4GB RAM variant has an internal storage of 32GB whereas the 6GB RAM variant comes with an in-built storage of 64GB. The F5 offers support for dual-SIM and has a microSD card slot.


AI-Enabled Beautification Technology

F5 Youth sports a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with a f/2.2 aperture lens as well as a LED flash. The front 16-megapixel camera has a f/2.0 aperture lens and a flash. This selfie camera comes with an AI-based beautification technology. In contrast, Oppo F5 has a 16-megapixel camera on the rear with a f/1.8 aperture and a 20-megapixel front camera along with a f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The front camera can recognise background light and is capable of enhancing the luminosity of portraits for better selfies. This camera also has a Portrait mode which makes it possible to click Bokeh shots.

Both F5 and F5 Youth have AI-enabled beautification technology, which Oppo claims “heightens your natural beauty based on your age, skin tone and skin type”.


Runs on Android 7.1 Nougat OS

Oppo’s F5 Youth has a Color OS 3.2 user interface based on the Android 7.1 Nougat OS. The device packs a 3,200 mAh battery. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the back. In addition to this, the smartphone comes with a Facial Unlock feature which uses your face to unlock the screen.

The F5 Youth has several options for connectivity like 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Micro-USB with support for USB OTG, a 3.5mm audio jack and A-GPS. Sensors on board consist of an accelerometer, a G-sensor, an ambient light sensor, a proximity sensor as well as a digital compass.
