Oppo has today announced that their photography focused F1s handset will be available from Yes Optus Stores and through Optus Online at the bargain price of just $259.

Featuring a 16MP front-facing camera and 12MP rear camera, the F1s has largely lived up to the hype that Oppo has generated with their F-Series handsets. The F-series aims to deliver an excellent quality camera experience with high-end camera features and software enhancement which includes ‘a ‘selfie panorama’ mode for group shots, and a palm-activated shutter to trigger an automatic selfie countdown’ and sensors designed to capture

Hardware wise, the F1s is a stylish looking handset and comes in a Grey colour option. Under the 5.5″ HD Display, you’ll find an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage with microSD card expansion and a 3,075 mAh battery.

Michael Tran, CMO at OPPO said of the launch

Aussies are savvy consumers who understand premium doesn’t have to mean pricey. We can offer these premium features, such as the ultra fast 0.22s Touch Access and metallic build, at a very competitive price point.

To get a hold of an OPPO F1s, head in to your local Yes Optus Stores or to the Optus website.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
