Nora Danish is a prominent Malaysian actress who is popular for her skill of taking beautiful selfies, gathering over 2.9 million followers on her Instagram account alone, making her the perfect representative for F1, the ‘Selfie Expert’ camera phone, OPPO said.
Chen Lu, the Brand Manager of OPPO Electronics said, “The F1 is designed especially for selfie-lovers who can now skip all the hassle of putting on full makeup and still look effortlessly, naturally beautiful. We are extremely thrilled to have our lovely Nora on board with us as the face of this new selfie savvy phone because Nora is truly a trend setter in mastering the art of selfies. In fact, her successful lifestyle has attracted more than 20 thousand fan ‘likes’ on Instagram on average per selfie. Her beauty, social savviness, expertise in her work and humble personality are values which are align with OPPO’s brand.”
Nora Danish also expressed her enthusiasm in being the new OPPO F1 selfie ambassador, “Capturing selfies is not just a way to express yourself, it is also a way of celebrating life and serves to mark that you are living your life to the fullest! Selfies can even be powerful statements to inspire people to achieve great things in their lives. So when OPPO contacted me to represent this game-changing selfie camera phone, I felt so honoured, it has proven to be my new secret weapon to take perfect selfies.”
Chen Lu also explained, “The idea of taking a selfie to celebrate life is an aspiration that many Malaysians can relate to. Two of our favourite cities in Malaysia – Petaling Jaya and George Town, are ranked the top 10 of the ‘selfie cities’ and the F1 was made timely to tailor to the Malaysian market needs and aspirations. Malaysians will find that the F1 can take selfies by voice command and hand gestures, enabling you to take hassle-free, clear, bright selfies.”
Supported by “OPPO’s great build quality and impressive design”, the F1 features a 8MP front-facing selfie camera designed to capture stunning Selfies effortlessly. It has a wide f/2.0 aperture lens and a 1/4-inch sensor, allowing more than 44% of light to enter the camera. F1’s built-in ‘Beautify 3.0’ feature comes with 3 different beautifying modes along with 8 filters, helping users to remove blemishes and highlight their facial features. This feature enables selfie-lovers to choose the most flattering filter to suit their face. There’s also the ‘Screen Flash’ function which is useful in a low light environment as it automatically catches and fills the light onto users’ faces as if they are taking the photo in daylight. Besides that, F1 enables users to capture selfies using hand gestures and spoken commands. By opening a palm in front of the camera, or simply by saying “Cheese!” users can activate an automatic selfie snap with an adjustable countdown.
The OPPO F1 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 series Octa-core processor with 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM, expandable up to 128GB. It has a 5-inch display, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 Screen, runs on OPPO’s ColorOS 2.1 and Android 5.1.
Malaysians could purchase the OPPO F1 starting tonight, 22nd January 2016 on the OPPO Store website. The first 200 customers who purchase the F1 will receive a free OPPO Selfie Stick. The OPPO F1 will be available in stores nationwide starting 25 January 2015.
