OPPO launches the F1 Plus with 16MP front-facing shooter for the perfect selfie

Oppo has just unleashed the company's second smartphone in the F series, which is focused heavily on photography. If you're all about that next Instagram and Snapchat selfie, the F1 Plus may be the perfect choice with its "Hi-light Camera". The tech is a first for OPPO, allowing owners of the phone to take clear, bright and more colorful selfies even in low light.

But what's all this about the Hi-light Camera and what makes it so special? According to OPPO:

"The F1 Plus' Hi-light Camera is four times more sensitive, has twice the dynamic range, and captures shots with four times less noise, compared to cameras without the technology. As a result, the Hi-light Camera produces exceptionally clear and bright images, and excels at low-light, back-lit and night-time photography."

In addition to the impressive selfie machine, the F1 Plus is powered by the MediaTek Helio P10, while offering 64GB of expandable internal storage, 4GB of RAM and VOOC Flash Charge to make sure you spend as little time as possible connected to an outlet.
