The Chinese smartphone maker has now launched a new lesser-priced variant of the device called the Oppo F5 Youth edition. The smartphone has been announced in the Philippines and is priced at PHP 13,990 (approx Rs 17,800) at launch. Being just a variant of the Oppo F5, the new smartphone does not look very different from the original device in terms of the design. However, it downgrades the camera setup and RAM in order to keep the price in check. Having said that, the Oppo F5 Youth has been made available in black and gold colour options.
Under the hood it packs a MediaTek Helio P23 processor coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. A microSD card slot is given to expand the internal storage. In comparison, Oppo F5 comes with two options – 4GB RAM and 32GB storage and 6GB RAM and 64GB in-built storage. The latter option will go on sale in India in December for Rs 24,990. The regular option with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, is now available for Rs 19,990. Connectivity options include dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, WiFi 802.11/a/b/g/n, GPS, and OTG support.
