OPPO F1s Selfie Expert Released in the Philippines, Sells Out in Three Days

Less than a week after the handset's exclusive media launch that I attended at Pico de Loro Resort in Nasugbu, Batangas, OPPO F1s finally hit store shelves across the Philippines last August 19, 2016.

And amazingly, in just three days, all of the Chinese company's initial batch of OPPO F1s smartphones for the Philippine market - consisting of over 19,000 units - were completely sold out!
