OPPO F5 is a device that has fascinated the young generation who are fond of making selfies. For those who consider the F5 out of their reach due to its relatively higher price tag, the company has brought the OPPO F5 Youth making it within reach of youth with all those camera features of the F5 to fulfil their selfie needs.
The concept of less powerful variant was surfaced last month with the launch of official sale of OPPO F5 in Pakistan. However, no words on specifications and pricing were revealed though hinted for its launch in December. OPPO stood by its words as the OPPO F5 Youth has been officially launched in The Philippines.
The OPPO F5 Youth shares nearly same design features as its elder sibling except for the missing antenna lines on the Youth. The new entrant has the same 6.0″ FHD+ display and the MediaTek MT6763T chipset; just like the OPPO F5.
The F5 Youth runs ColorOS 3.2 based on Android 7.1 that brings split-screen multitasking, DND gaming mode and a Night Shield mode that reduces eye strain when in dark environments.
The difference is evident in storage features as the F5 Youth brings 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with an option of microSD card to expand up to 256GB any time.
Another difference lies in the camera specs; the OPPO F5 Youth will carry a 16MP f/2.0 2.0um AI beauty selfie camera and a 13MP f/2.0 rear camera instead of the 20MP AI Beauty Selfie camera nor the 16MP rear camera as in the case of OPPO F5.
The OPPO F5 Youth has a 3200mAh battery that charges via a micro USB port. There is an audio jack, Bluetooth 4.2, dual band Wi-Fi, and dual nano SIM slots. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner in addition to Face Unlock.

As mentioned earlier, the OPPO F5 Youth has been officially put on shelves in The Philippines carrying price tag of PHP 13,990 (~$275 or PKR 29,000). The buyers may select their favourite one among black and gold colour options.
