Oppo has finally announced the much-anticipated F19 series in India via an online launch event. The series consists of two new phones – F19 Pro and F19 Pro+, while the company announced that the standard F19 is coming soon too. As with the recent F-series phones, these are style-centric midrange phones with decent camera capabilities. That being said, let’s talk about the new Oppo F19 Pro, Pro+ including their specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Oppo F19 Pro, Pro+ Overview:
Design and Display
Oppo F19 Pro series features a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED panel with an FHD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. There is no support for a higher refresh rate as these phones use a 60Hz panel. Still, you get a 135Hz touch sampling rate which can be increased to 180Hz in the Game Mode. The display is capable of producing over 16 million colors. It covers 100% of SRGB and 92% of the DCI P3 color gamut. Under normal conditions, the brightness can get up to 430 nits with the peak brightness listed at 800 nits.
Talking about the design, the F19 Pro is available in two color gradients – Crystal Silver and Fluid Black. However, we will also see a Fantastic Purple color option when the device launches in Nepal. Oppo F19 Pro+, on the other hand, is available in either Space Silver and Fluid Black. More on the design, these phones are sleek and comfortable to hold. In fact, F19 Pro and Pro+ are just 7.8mm thick and weigh around 172/173 grams.
Performance and Memory
The biggest difference between the Oppo F19 Pro and the F19 Pro+ is 5G connectivity. Here, F19 Pro+ is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U and thus is 5G capable. 5G is supported across both SIM slots and users can switch between 4G and 5G conveniently.
Oppo is still holding back in the performance department for the Pro model which comes with the same processor that powered its predecessor, the Helio P95. Other than that, both phones feature Oppo’s new System Performance optimizer that reduces lag and improves swipe responsiveness.
Moreover, these phone comes with a dedicated Game Mode with support for Bullet Notification extended to WhatsApp and Telegram.
In terms of memory, the F19 Pro series is available in a single memory configuration of 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB UFS 2.1 internal storage. The Pro model also has a 256GB variant which the Pro+ doesn’t have.
In addition to the design, cameras are another highlight of Oppo’s F-series smartphones. The 48MP primary camera here has an f/1.7 aperture and uses a 6P lens. It is capable of recording 4K 30fps videos. With EIS enabled, users can record up to 1080P 30fps videos. It is accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide camera with an f/2.2 aperture. Completing the setup is a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP mono camera.
The rear camera now supports AI Color Portrait Videos. The Pro+ model can even shoot AI Highlight Portrait Videos in low-light conditions. Similarly, users can now record videos using front and rear cameras simultaneously thanks to the dual-view video mode. Other features include Dynamic Bokeh and the new Night Plus mode.
On the front, there is a 16MP selfie camera. The variant that is coming to Nepal is likely to feature a 32MP camera. To recall, the Oppo F17 Pro had a 2MP depth sensor in addition to the 16MP primary camera. Even with EIS enabled, it can record 1080/720p videos at 30fps.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the devices is a 4310mAh battery that is slightly bigger than that of the F17 Pro. Another plus feature in the Pro+ model is the 50W Flash Charge. With just 5 min charging, users can get up to 3.5 hours of video playback. As for the F19 Pro, it has the same 30W VOOC charging as its predecessor.
The fingerprint scanner is placed underneath the screen. The phones ship with ColorOS 11.1 based on Android 11 out-of-the-box. Talking about the box, Oppo ships the phones with both earphones and chargers which are quite rare at this price.
