Oppo is a giant manufacturer of the best start camera phones in India. Have you seen the Oppo F5 and the clutter breaking performance that it has given in terms of features for the consumer and the revenues for the company.

When I deep dived in it what I figured out was that oppo is not just banking on its camera phones

How was 2017?

Last year, OPPO introduced us to AI-powered selfies with their F5 phone. Its amazing camera recognizes the differences between skin tones and colour, age, the gender of subjects and makes relevant beautification enhancements to each photo. This makes any selfies taken on the F5 look super natural.

  • The smartphone appears to have an octa-core MediaTek Helio P60 SoC with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2GHz, paired with Mali-G72MP3 GPU and 6GB of RAM.
  • The handset has a 16-megapixel rear camera sensor with an automatic scene recognition feature. The camera sensor comes with an f/2.0 aperture lens on top and supports 4K video recording as well as uses a dual-tone LED flash. Further, there is a 3400mAh battery that is touted to last for up to 15 hours on a single charge.
  • The document suggests that the Oppo F7 will run on MediaTek Helio P60 AI-centric chipset. The chipset was most recently seen at the MWC 2018. It has eight cores and has a 12nm architecture. Also, the chip maker claims the P60 has AI that understands and adapts user behaviour to make your phone smarter.
