More than a month after its release, the OPPO F5 Youth is already getting a price drop.
If you haven’t heard of it, the OPPO F5 Youth is essentially the slightly trimmed down version of OPPO’s current flagship in the Philippines — the standard F5.
And despite being the cheaper variant, the compromises on the F5 Youth are very trivial. For one, the RAM capacity was only slashed by 1GB, which means you’re getting 3GB worth of multitasking space.
The cameras were also toned down a little bit. From the 20-megapixel + 16-megapixel combo of the F5 (read our review), you’re now only getting a 16-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors in the front and back, respectively.
But still, the OPPO F5 Youth still has the AI-powered beauty mode found on the higher end model. It will also sport the same 6-inch IPS display, Helio P23 octa-core processor, and 32GB of internal storage.

The OPPO F5 Youth now retails for Php12,990 — Php1,000 off from its original price tag of Php13,990. This move is the company’s answer to the recent price cut to the Vivo V7, which is its main competitor in the midrange market.
