Together with the opening of their SM Megamall Concept Store, OPPO officially launched the follow-up to their current flagship. The OPPO F5 Youth, a more affordable alternative to the F5, offers a more compelling value for the money.
Despite looking like the underdog, the OPPO F5 Youth isn’t a too much of a compromise from the more expensive OPPO F5. The Youth variant managed to acquire a lot of the major characteristics of the F5, with only a few corners cut in some areas.
For one, the RAM capacity has been turned down a notch to 3GB, from the F5’s 4GB memory. The cameras also took a minor beating as their resolution are now only 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel in the front and back, respectively.
But still, the F5 Youth uses the same MediaTek Helio P23 octa-core processor and the selfie camera also sports the F5’s AI-powered Face Beauty and Facial recognition security feature. OPPO also kept the same 6-inch FHD+ resolution display with a tall aspect ratio of 18:9.
