Leading global smartphone brand OPPO has once again expanded its bouquet of offerings with its latest F-series smartphone, OPPO F15. The new mid-range device is not only capable of grabbing your attention with its highly impressive specs, but also its extremely sleek design. The ultra-thin and lightweight F15 ships with an array of advanced features that will surely grab your attention. Quite impressive, isn’t it? But, that’s not all. Launched on January 16th, the device goes on sale from January 24th on Amazon and Flipkart for just Rs 19,990. So, without further ado, let us tell you what gives the OPPO F15 its flaunt-worthy status.
Versatile camera experience
OPPO F15 supports a 48MP AI-quad camera setup placed on its rear surface. The primary 48MP f/1.7 camera makes use of 4-in-one-pixel binning technology that makes for sharper, more detailed images. The 8MP Ultra-Wide-Angle lens enables users to capture stunning photographs that give you a completely different perspective on your subjects with an angle of 119-degrees. Along with a special technology that removes the distortion from the sides of the images, the device enables you to capture a multitude of shots.
OPPO F15 also offers a 2MP macro lens that’s capable of rendering auto-focus at distances as close as 3cm. This is perfect for capturing food photos, close up shots and more. The fourth camera is a depth sensor, meant for rendering bokeh in your portrait shots. These four cameras are aided by a slew of additional features. These include a Night Portrait Mode that’s capable of delivering brighter and more natural night shots of your subjects.
OPPO F15 also presents the Anti-shake video feature that combines EIS software and gyroscope hardware to stabilize videos being shot on the device. As a result, the clips captured on this phone are smooth and free of sudden jerks. AI is a big part of the F15’s camera experience. AI Video Beautification has been added into the mix, which systematically analyses faces in your videos to apply custom beauty adjustments. And there’s even Gender and Age Detection, which automatically applies individualised adjustments based on its observations.

Big battery and VOOC Flash Charge 3.0
Not too long ago, OPPO introduced VOOC Flash Charge technology for offering faster charging time for its own devices. The technology has grown by leaps and bounds, with VOOC Flash Charge 3.0 which performs faster.
You won’t need to charge the device that often though, since it carries inside it a massive 4,000mAh battery. With low to moderate usage, you can easily stretch the battery life of the phone to 2 days. But that also means that with heavy usage, it’ll definitely last you an entire day.

The device measures just 7.9mm around the waist, and tips the scales at 172gms. The absence of added bulk makes a big difference to the everyday usage experience. For instance, a thinner phone is way easier to slide into your pocket. Plus, you won’t have to worry about wrist fatigue when binge-watching your favourite TV shows.
A special Laser Light Reflection surface has been deployed on the rear panel. This gives the phone an incredibly premium look and feel. At the back, a vertically aligned quad camera setup along with a vertical flash module has been placed that grabs your attention. This camera array is surrounded by a decorative ring that enhances its fine appearance. The phone comes in two stunning colour options – Unicorn White and Lightening Black – both of which feature attractive gradient hues.
The front of the phone is occupied by a 6.4-inch 1,080 x 2,400-pixel FHD+ AMOLED display. This is a Widevine L1 certified panel, which means streaming services like Netflix will be able to render their visuals in HD resolution. Underneath this panel is an in-display fingerprint scanner. This is OPPO’s third generation of the said hardware, and users will be able to unlock the device in just 0.32 seconds using it.

Smart software, fast performance
ColorOS 6.1.2 is the software of choice for this phone. This version of OPPO’s proprietary operating system features an updated user interface that’s fashioned with blank spaces instead of harsh lines to create spaces and layers. Fresh navigation gestures have been added as well, apart from a Riding Mode, which turns off notifications while you are riding a bike. The AI Ice Box is another interesting addition to ColorOS 6.1.2, as it intelligently freezes certain applications to make space for other ones, thus conserving maximum energy. And then there’s the Smart Assistant portal that presents important information as well as shortcuts in the form of cards.
OPPO F15 is able to deliver fast performance thanks to its advanced hardware. 8GB worth of RAM has made its way into the handset, apart from 128GB of storage. Moreover, there’s a dedicated microSD card slot as well, for further storage expansions of up to 256GB. Gamers will be pleased to know that Game Boost 2.0 technology is available on this device. This technology works towards improving latency and control issues, while enhancing the phone’s touch control and refresh rate, thus leading to a smooth gaming experience. A Gaming Voice Changer and In-Game Noise Cancelling Effect have also been added to this device’s offerings.

There’s also 5 percent cashback on EMI offers purchased through HDFC, ICICI and Yes Bank credit card/debit cards, and zero down payments with Bajaj Finserv. Moreover, Reliance Jio offers 100 percent additional data.
