Google Pixel 2 XL being the latest entrant, the market for phones with thin bezels is getting crowded ever since the Galaxy S8 was announced. The Chinese smartphone manufacturers have historically been quite swift at adopting such new tech. Oppo F5 will be the next phone to come with an 18:9 display and thinner bezels and the leaked images and video stand firm by this claim.
The F-series by Oppo has a great selfie camera as its USP and the company touts it as a ‘selfie expert’. The Oppo F5 will also inherit this feature and should offer a top-notch quality when it comes to the images from the front camera. The Oppo F5 has been revealed from all its sides in a campaign video by ABS-CBN Lifestyle. A couple of images of the phone had also been leaked, which have been included in this piece.
In the video, you will be able to clearly see the Oppo F5 sporting those thin bezels and a much longer display than usual. The video shows a few models clicking selfies using the Oppo F5 showing off its amazing selfie-taking skills. Oppo has gone with an entirely different approach than what other smartphone manufacturers do.
Unlike the recent trend of including a dual-camera setup on the back of the phone, the Oppo F5 will come with dual cameras on the front. The rear will still have a 20MP single camera unit along with an LED flash. Along with the 18:9 display and those thin bezels, the phone will have two 16MP cameras on the front.

Apart from this, we also noticed that the design of the phone was heavily inspired from the Galaxy S8, at least from the front. The Oppo F5 has a similar 18:9 display and thinner bezels on the front, leaving no room for the fingerprint scanner. It has been moved to the back of the phone and is placed in the centre. Thankfully, Oppo didn’t take inspiration from Samsung here.
In terms of raw specifications, there isn’t much that we know as of now. As per some of the early rumours, the Oppo F5 will come with a 6-inch display of with an unknown resolution. It will have 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, a 4000mAh battery, and will come powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor.
