OPPO F5 - a camera phone with A.I. Beauty Recognition Tech and Speedy Facial Unlock


OPPO Philippines just unveiled the latest technology for their latest camera phone, the OPPO F5. The new tech, the A.I. Beauty Recognition Technology, uses 200 facial feature spots and analyze 2 million kinds of faces to capture the real you with its camera. A beautification feature that uses a non-filter camera tech that refines the facial traits of the subject and it can detect the face of a female and male on the photo and apply the better beautification in  a much personalize way.

With this kind of camera technology, you wont be look like a cartoon character using a common beauty filter but instead showcase a much real face of yourself on photo taken by OPPO F5.

The OPPO F5 can also do bokeh photography for selfie and we're surprise to see that the latest OPPO F5 is equipped with one camera on each side and it proves that OPPO can take bokeh effect without using an extra camera to capture the background.

The most exciting feature also for the OPPO F5 is the Speedy Facial Unlock, because the OPPO F5 doesn't have any more buttons on the front side, because its now a full screen FHD camera phone with 6.0 inches display.

But there's a button at the rear and that's for the finger unlock scanner. But for the newest feature is the facial unlock, it is the most fastest way to unlock your phone, all you need to do is look at your phone and it will unlock automatically. The new Speedy Facial Unlock uses live camera security to detect and recognize the user's enrolled facial to access the phone. This time OPPO F5 has three kinds of security lock features - the pin code, finger scan and now the facial scan.

Wow! that's a lot of tech features from the OPPO F5, we're happy to see that tech on smartphones are becoming more advanced and also form is much simplier.

Here's a closer look of OPPO F5
Check out the front camera -- only one camera with 20MP that can do bokeh feature and with A.I. Beauty Recognition Tech

In my early glimpse of OPPO F5, I thought it has two camera at the front. So I was wrong. But Im not sure if they plan to have two or more camera for the upcoming OPPO F5 Plus, if they plan to bring it here in the Philippines.


The rear camera with 16MP with 1.8 aperture


OPPO F5 comes in Gold body and Black body, But I think that OPPO Philippines might launch a red version too in the future, so watch out for the grand sale and launch of it.

The Black Body OPPO F5 is so sleek and neat and its perfect for male OPPO users.

Here we tried the front camera with A.I. Beauty Recognition Tech


My wife Lace loves the camera of the new OPPO F5, it captures a very perfect selfie photo and it uses not too much beauty filter.


Here's a sample photo of selfie featuring using OPPO F5 --  without using the beauty feature.


And here's the beauty feature of the OPPO F5, it helps blur the background and it detects only my face to give a much sharper focus to the subject-- me and my face.


Thanks to its A.I. Beauty Recognition Tech,  the 200 facial points is so quick to detect that there are two person on the front camera. I heard that the front camera can detect up to 10 or 15 people in one selfie ( I have to test this soon)



Selfie again with the OPPO F5


You can also tap the screen to select focus on one subject, this can help you avoid any photo bomber on your selfie photo.

Here's a video mode, Im not sure if the A.I. Beauty Recognition Tech applies on video. But I can see that my face here blended well on the lighting and also I look better hahaha.

Taking photos using the rear camera


Comparison: Selfie with OPPO F3 Plus and OPPO F5

The OPPO F3 Plus is using the wide 120 degree selfie feature, that's the feature that Im going to miss if ever I will change to OPPO F5. The wide angle selfie is very important to me and its very helpful for group shots, travel and wide angle vlog.

OPPO F5 is mainly for selfie lovers. I do hope that they can add the wide angle selfie soon in their next OPPO model.


Here's my 1st try of the Speedy Face Unlock
I'm very impressed on the feature and you wont be needed to use any button to unlock your OPPO F5 camera phone.

on photo: that's the process of enrolling your face for the facial unlock feature.


OPPO  gave us a lot of surprises for their new OPPO F5 camera phone.
For a SRP of PHP 15,990 its already a good price for a phone with better and awesome tech specs.

If you are a selfie lover then this camera phone is the best for you.
