Selfie Expert Going Smart, Built-in A.I. Find the Real Beauty Inside Out
Priced more affordably, the OPPO F5 Youth features a high quality 16MP Selfie camera (f/2.0), a 13MB rear camera and an extraordinary 6-inch full-screen of 2160×1080 resolution(FHD+), bringing worthy visual and mobile Selfie experience. As the well-known Selfie Expert and Leader, OPPO is stepping forward and has upgraded the built-in beautification technology with the smart artificial intelligence and optimizations.
The F5 Youth takes enhanced and natural Selfies that reflect the beauty of the users from inside out. Based on its global human face database and advanced algorithms, OPPO A.I. Beauty Technology can detect the photo shooters’ facial features instantly and result in attractive photos as if being clicked by a professional photographer.
With more than 200 facial recognition spots that reference the image against a global database of human faces to learn facial features, shapes and structures, F5 can distinguish each person’s face features from skin tone and type, gender, age and more. After facial recognition, the AI Beauty technology will customize beautify based on one’s features from skin, eyes, lips, to face shape. Along with the Bokeh effects and the HDR backlight optimization, each user can get his or her own Selfie.
Cool Features like Full-screen, Facial Unlock and Back Fingerprint Reader
Through the 6 inch full-screen display, the same model on the F5, the users can interact with a wider screen giving the user a vivid visual enjoyment. It features a high-resolution 2160 x 1080 dpi screen with 18:9 aspect ratio.
The F5 Youth comes with Facial Unlock, the new face recognition technology that will recognize its user and unlock the phone. If the user prefers to use the fingerprint unlock function, the fingerprint reader is now on the back of the phone, giving way to a full front screen.
OPPO Design Continues and the Smooth-ever ColorOS 3.2
The F5 Youth follows OPPO’s streamlined design philosophy – the sleek unibody offers a visually slim appearance without any cut-offs, with a gracefully curved body that fits well in the palm, expressing a simple and elegant look.
