With last year’s F3 and F3 Plus, Oppo showed the world that its full focus was on a selfie-obsessed younger generation. This year too the Chinese brand has taken a bigger leap into the same foray. The newly launched Oppo F5 comes with AI technology that can recognise and enhance facial features, thus enabling a greater selfie experience.

Oppo F5: AI Beauty
So as we mentioned earlier, Oppo is targeting the selfie-snapping youth for its artificial intelligence-enabled beauty recognition technology.
After all, the company does refer to its devices as “Selfie Experts”.
Ivan Wu, General Manager of Oppo Gulf, stressed on the F5’s “AI Beauty Recognition Technology” and said most of its features were derived from consulting professional photographers and make-up artists during the R&D process. Integrating this with AI technology and a global image database of human faces led to the creation of the technology behind the F5’s camera.
The phone can also identify 200 facial recognition spots and customise every individual’s “beauty effect”. The phone differentiates between men and women to “beautify” them accordingly.
