Oppo today launched the upgraded F1s smartphone in India with 16MP front facing camera. The Oppo F1s has a 5.5-inch 720p HD IPS display running on the MediaTek MT6750 octa-core SoC with 3 GB RAM, 32 GB onboard storage and dual-SIM 4G LTE support.
You have three separate slots here, two Nano SIM slots both of which support 4G LTE and a separate microSD slot to expabd storage. Oppo has also upgraded the rear camera of the F1s with a 13MP f/2.2 shooter capable of recording 1080p videos.
Sadly, the Oppo F1s is still running on dated Android 5.1 Lollipop with the company's Color OS skin on top. There is some customization available but we would have liked to see Marshmallow on the new device.

Coming to the selfie camera, it did take good images in the time I used the phone. Exposure control was good and the new Beautify features don't make you look as cartoonish as before. Moreover in low light the phone also uses its display as a soft LED flash, lighting it up while taking a selfie. Then there's Panorama Selfie mode here as well which lets you include all of your friends in a single shot. Neat additions although not unique.
You also have a fingerprint sensor on the Oppo F1s which is embedded in the home button. It works fast and you can customize it to open different apps based on which finger is used to unlock the device or tap on it.
