Now that we know of its roots, here’s the F5 Youth:

  • 6-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~402 ppi density
  • Fullview Display
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Mediatek MT6763T Helio P23 chipset, Octa-core 2.5 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Mali-G71 MP2 graphics and 3GB RAM
  • 13MP primary camera with f/2.2 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • 16MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture
  • 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to 256GB maximum
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery
  • Android Nougat 7.1
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • November 2017 release date

Most of the specs of F5 Youth are so similar with the F5, except for some.

For starters, F5 Youth has a similarly large 6-inch Full HD IPS screen with Fullview display and fingerprint sensor.

Regarding performance, there should be just a slight difference as the F5 Youth is sporting a similar Helio P23 chipset, a fast octa-core processor, good graphics but with a reduced 3GB RAM. You might notice some lags during heavy multi-tasking. Otherwise you will do just fine.

Camera-wise, we all know how good Oppo is that it carries the name Selfie Expert. Even though the F5 Youth gets a downgrade on its camera setup, the 13MP-16MP camera combination still packs quite a punch. Applying AI technology to beautify images, it gives you the most natural and awesome selfie. It heightens your natural beauty based on your age, skin tone or skin type. Propelled by complex algorithms of AI beauty recognition technology, the 16MP selfie camera captures the real beauty and the real you.

Finally, the same 3200 mAh battery is supplying the juice to the F5 Youth. There won’t be a problem for it to be able to last you for a full day of battery life, or slightly more.
