Oppo, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has announced that the Oppo f5 smartphone will be launched on October 26. Since the announcement has been made on Oppo’s Philippines Facebook page, it is ambiguous that whether the Philippines launch will follow a China or global launching – for now, this is the only launch date disclosed for the selfie-focused smartphone.
The launch teaser of the upcoming phone on the Oppo Philippines page clearly indicates that it would be selfie-centric. The teaser has a tagline “F5: Capture the real you,” The Oppo F5 has appeared in a couple of leaks over the past two weeks, starting with launch posters in the Philippines. Featuring the same tagline, the posters were spotted in SM Megamall in Metro Manilla. The posters (seen below) show the smartphone from behind, in Black and Red colour variants, with a single rear camera setup and a fingerprint sensor on the back panel.
All the leaks point to the smartphone having a metallic body with minimal display bezels. Other colour variants seen include Gold and Rose Gold. Notably, the smartphone is also said to be the design reference for the recently leaked OnePlus 5T.
