Oppo is releasing a new Oppo F series phone on September 15, the Oppo F21s Pro. Teasers for the phone are currently on Oppo India’s website and Amazon, revealing a lot of details about the phone.
Oppo F21s Pro will bring an exciting microscopic camera to the segment; should be similar to the microscopic camera we found on the Oppo Find X3 Pro. Oppo calls this a microlens for this phone, “segment first microlens camera”.
No other phone in the current segment has a macro camera; Oppo is teasing a 30X magnification with this camera.
The Oppo F21s Pro will also feature an orbit light feature, a ring around the camera lens on the back of the phone, and a flash that acts as a notification LED.
It alerts you about calls, messages and other notifications. It won’t be as fancy as the Nothing Phone’s glyph interface (1), but it will certainly be a welcome addition.
The phone will be available in two different colors, Dawnlight Gold and Starlight Black. This reminds us of the colors of the Oppo Reno8 5G, which is good.
The Oppo F21s Pro is rumored to come with a 64MP main camera and there will be no ultra wide camera on the phone as the Microlens camera takes its place. But there will be a 2MP depth sensor to complete the triple camera setup.
We’re not sure about the rest of the phone’s features. For now, let’s wait for more details.
The non-Pro version of this phone is also rumored to be accompanying this phone, the Oppo F21s. ONE Pricebaba report revealed that the posters of the vanilla phones and Oppo F21s would have a different design from this phone.
Struggling to stand out?
Smartphones seem to have become obsolete, and all phones these days seem more similar to each other than different. Oppo is trying out two new things with this phone: Microlens and Orbit light. Of course, these two features might not be that important in everyday use, but they make the device stand out from the rest of the pack. Design-wise, on the other hand, the Oppo seems to have scaled back a bit, and the phone looks almost the same as the Oppo F21 Pro, its predecessor.
