OPPO is known for releasing limited edition variants of its smartphones to commemorate certain festivals and events. This time around, the Chinese firm is gearing up to launch the OPPO F5 Dashing Blue Edition in conjunction with this Valentine’s Day.

A Celebration Of Love!

OPPO F5 Dashing Blue Edition

The OPPO F5 Dashing Blue Edition will be introduced in Malaysia for Valentine’s, though no specific date has been given. According to the manufacturer, Blue represents the purity of love, which is the reason why it picked the aforementioned colour. The rear panel of the handset happens to be reflective, giving off a mirror like effect when exposed to light.

In terms of specs, the OPPO F5 Dashing Blue Edition remains the same as its other siblings. If you would like a recap of the hardware, do read on. The smartphones sports a 6-inch fullHD+ display, with an 18:9 aspect ratio, with 2.5D curved glass laid on top of it. It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P23 processor coupled with a Mali G71 MP2 GPU. Memory wise, it packs 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of expandable storage. However, the Dashing Blue Edition will likely come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The main highlight of the device happens to be its camera setup, which features a 16-megapixel rear-facing shooter, and a 20-megapixel selfie camera. What’s special about this setup is the inclusion of OPPO’s “AI Beauty Recognition Technology”. It is designed to personalize beautification for subjects in selfies. Keeping the lights on is a 3,200mAh non-removable battery, and it surprisingly doesn’t support fast charging. Software wise, the OPPO F5 runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing for the Dashing Blue Edition hasn’t been announced yet, though it should pack a similar price tag as the variants currently available in Malaysia.
