Malhotra and photographer Rohan Shrestha shared their selfie experiences with OPPO F5 during the event.
 
According to the company, OPPO F5 is the first smart phone that brings Artificial Intelligence into selfie feature in India with years of R&D. 
 
The feature identifies shapes and facial structures based on a global database. 
 
Professional photographers and make-up artists were consulted during the R&D process, resulting in the A.I. technology having the ability to emulate those professional skills that can help selfies look more real and nature, the company.
 
According to the company, with more than 200 facial recognition spots that reference the image against a global database of human faces to learn facial features, shapes and structures, F5 can distinguish each person’s face features from skin tone and type, gender, age and more. 
 
After facial recognition, the AI Beauty technology will customize the image based on one’s features from skin, eyes, lips, to face shape. 
 
The feature will also have personalization for specific subjects. For example, enhancements will not be soft or feminine for male subjects. Children or babies will not receive enhancements that make them look like adults.
 
OPPO F5 comes installed with a 20MP front camera with an ultra-sensitive F2.0 aperture and 1/2.8” sensor. 
 
Both features allow the camera to gain more information to produce better images with less noise in low light conditions, according to OPPO. 
 
The front-camera Portrait mode also applies a Bokeh effect to the background, creating better gradation and making the photographer the focus of the selfie shot, every time.
 
The 16MP rear camera is excellent for all day and night shots, the company said in its release. Along with the F1.8 aperture, the back camera also performs brilliantly for brighter and more precise shots in darker settings, said OPPO. 
 
The F5 will be OPPO’s first 6.0-inch FHD + full-screen display device, features a high-resolution 2160 x 1080 dpi screen with 18:9 aspect ratio. F5 is also the first phone equipped with FHD+ full screen display in its price segment.

The F5 comes with Facial Unlock, the new face recognition technology that will recognize its user and unlock the phone.
