Oppo F1

In a press event in Mumbai, Oppo introduced the photography-centric 'F' series of smartphones, launching the mid-range Oppo F1 in the country.

The F series stems from a growing demand for premium-quality mobile photography from mid-range devices. Earlier this month, in a press statement, the company claimed that its research has indicated strong consumer recognition that its phones "shoot great photos."
