It’s that time of the year where all manufacturers seem to be coming up with phones that are limited edition and directly cater to the interest of their end customer. For those who love superheroes, Samsung came up with a Batman themed Galaxy S7 Edge recently and Oppo has now cashed in on another strong affinity point of their users, football. Thanks to their association with FC Barcelona, Oppo has announced a limited edition, FC Barcelona themed Oppo F1 Plus.
As expected the phone is in the colors of the club with a blue back, with red accent lines. Just below the prominent Oppo branding at the back, you have Barcelona’s club crest in an 18 karat gold motif. The device also comes with a case with it which bears autographs of prominent squad members like Messi, Neymar, Suarez and Iniesta. There is also a FC Barcelona wallpaper which comes out of the box alongside a UI specially designed for the rare device.
Other than aesthetic changes, the device is pretty much exactly how an ordinary Oppo F1 Plus is as far as the specifications go. You have the same 5.5-inch Full HD display driven by Helio P10 SoC, 16MP front facing snapper and a 13MP rear shooter, while the battery continues to be the same 2850 mAh unit. The phone comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage, exactly the same as the Oppo F1 Plus that we have already seen and appreciated. The Barcelona-themed F1 Plus will go on sale in selected countries only starting with China, Indonesia etc. This is most definitely a device that we are sure all the Barca fans at least would have liked to have been global, but for now, you will have to contend with the other devices in the lineup if the F1 Plus is not coming to your country.
