OPPO’s F1s the Selfie Expert smartphone with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera is now the Best-selling smartphone in the Philippines for Q4 2016 in all price ranges according to global market research expert GfK.
OPPO’s flagship Selfie Expert smartphone, the F1s, closed 2016 as the best-selling smartphone in the Philippines according to global market research expert GfK.
Based on GfK data, the F1s accounted for 7.1 and 6.4 percent of total smartphone units sold in November and December 2016 respectively across all price segments.
Other OPPO phones also made it to the top ten list including the Neo 7 at the fourth spot and the A37 at the tenth spot. The brand already ranked second among competitors in July the same year, quickly becoming a top choice in the local market since the introduction of its line of selfie-focused camera phones, the F1 Series.
“We’ve always pushed the brand further to create a product that consumers can trust,” OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. “With the success of the F1s, we are confident that we’ve come up with a camera phone that addressed the need for better selfies as well as overall smartphone performance.”
The first-ever selfie phone with a 16MP front-facing camera, the F1s emerged from years of innovation that sought to revolutionize mobile photography. These breakthroughs include OPPO’s motorized rotating camera, the Ultra HD feature, and the groundbreaking “5x Dual Camera Zoom”—the world’s first periscopic smartphone camera lens showcased at the 2017 Mobile World Congress.
