Oppo now offers F5 6GB in both black and red

UPDATE: If you don't fancy red, then black is now an option

The Oppo F5 recently debuted in a new colour - spicy red with 6GB of RAM. Preorders are opening soon if you're interested.

UPDATE 4/12/2017: Now the Chinese manufacturer has announced another colour variant of the Oppo F5 6GB: black, perfect for those who want a more subtle option. Pricing has yet to be shared but we expect news on that when the official launch happens.

Hot stuff

UPDATE 30/11/2017: Oppo revealed that the first 1000 to preorder the Oppo F5 6GB in red will get a limited edition gift box. Alongside the phone, you will also get a special red phone case that comes decorated with premium Swarovski crystals. So this is a nice option if you're looking for something shiny to give as a present this coming gift-giving season.

Local celebrity Neelofa will also be at the launch event where she will unbox the new Oppo F5.

The F5 stands out for its face unlocking feature as well as optimised face recognition tech, that will map your face and create better selfies.

With an edge-to-edge screen as well as a decent 16MP rear camera, the phone offers a lot for just under RM1300, making the fight for the mid-range bezel-less crown pretty fierce.

Preorders will start 6 December from 12.30pm onwards and the first 1000 people who preorder online will get a mystery gift.

Pricing for the red 6GB model hasn't been announced as yet but will likely be revealed on preorder day, which is also the date of the media launch.
