After the launch of the selfie-centric OPPO F5 last month, OPPO Malaysia has introduced a more premium, higher-spec variant—the OPPO F5 6GB. Available in Black and in a Red Edition, the new device also comes in a limited edition gift box, but only if you pre-order.
The OPPO F5 6GB is a MYR400 premium over the standard version, which retails at MYR1,298. From the outside, they look exactly the same.
They also share the same MediaTek Helio P23 processor and 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) display, with an 18:9 screen ratio.
In the camera department, it comes with a 16MP f/1.8 rear shooter, while the front gains a massive 20MP f/2.0 unit with AI beautification.
Powering the device is a fairly large 3,200mAh battery. The device runs ColorOS 3.2 out-of-the-box, which is based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
The 6GB version is as its namesake: it boasts a whopping 6GB of RAM, and also comes with larger 64GB of storage. Storage can also be expanded further via microSD.
As mentioned in a previous post, through a partnership with Swarovski, it is offering a limited edition crystal-encrusted case for the first 1,000 F5 6GB Red Edition pre-order customers. Pre-orders kicked off on 6 December 2017, with the device hitting OPPO Concept Stores and on OPPO’s online store starting 16 December.
