Alden Richards is the new face of OPPO F1s selfie expert
Before the OPPO F1s Selfie Expert ambassador launch, image of a man wearing a gray vest and polo, spreads fast on social media with a caption "New Face of the #SelfieExpert". It was already a give away even if the image cropped his face showing him half grinning. Everyone knows that Alden Richards would be OPPO's celebrity ambassador, based on that smile alone. Perfect for being the new #SelfieExpert endorser.
OPPO unveiled the ‘new face of the selfie expert’—the special edition F1s Limited that sports a metallic grey color together with the new celebrity ambassador Alden Richards on Nov 8 at SM MOA Atrium. The launch was attended by OPPO executives headed by Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng, Lazada CEO and Co -Founder Inanch Balci, PBA President Media 5 Chot Reyes, and the media.
Celebrity Kapuso ambassador Alden Richards signed in the deal with OPPO execs before the public on Nov 8 at SM MOA Atrium.
“We are thrilled to welcome Alden Richards to our growing OPPO family,” Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. “We can’t wait to see how Alden will help us redefine our selfie-taking experiences.”
The F1s first made waves among Filipino smartphone users last August. The new smartphone was such a hit that more than 19,000 units across the country sold out in just three days after its debut.
Alden Richards expressed his excitement to work with OPPO, the Philippine’s second bestselling smartphone brand according to a report by German-based market research firm GfK.
“Selfies capture life’s most unforgettable moments in a very spontaneous way. I’m proud to be part of a family that celebrates those special moments,” Richards shared.Richards is the other half of the phenomenal power couple AlDub, who stars in a segment of long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga. The love team generated a record-breaking number of tweets last March in one of their episodes, a feat recognized by the Guinness World Records during the tenth anniversary of micro-blogging site Twitter.
The selfie expert
Nicknamed the ‘selfie expert’, the OPPO F1s has a 16-megapixel front-facing camera that can snap bright selfies even in dim light thanks to its large aperture. It also helps users achieve a flawless look through its upgraded beautifying app, Beautify 4.0.
Apart from static selfies, the F1s can create moving images using its Super GIF feature, as well as double-exposure shots that juxtapose two images in one photo to create a sense of motion.
Lightning-fast fingerprint recognition also unlocks the phone in 0.22 seconds. Five fingerprints can be assigned to five contacts or applications for quick access.
The F1s is currently available in gold and rose gold. Concept and dealer stores nationwide will take pre-orders of F1s Limited starting today until November 11. Pre-orders can also be placed through the online shop Lazada. Customers who pre-order will also receive an exclusive set of VR and selfie stick for free.
