OPPO today unveiled the toned-down version of the OPPO F7 for the Philippine market. Sleek, attractive, and fueled by flagship MediaTek internals, the new OPPO F7 Youth is aimed squarely at consumers who are looking for a solid upgrade without blowing a huge hole in their budget.

The Philippines is the first market to formally get a glimpse of the OPPO F7 Youth, and it will one of the first, if not the first, to get it on store shelves when it goes on sale first week of June. That speaks volumes about where the country of over 100 million people is on the Chinese OEM’s radar. Right now, we’re told that the Philippines is one of OPPO’s biggest customers by volume sales.

On the outside, the phone resembles the F7 in terms of size and overall look, but there are obvious omissions to keep the price attractive for many. Most notably, the OPPO F7 Youth doesn’t have a notch nor does it incorporate a fingerprint reader anywhere on the hardware. The missing cutout at the top of the screen could actually prove to be a good design choice, and OPPO’s face-unlock feature is intact and working as expected on the F7 Youth.

The front- and rear-facing cameras, meanwhile, have lost some megapixels, with the handset sporting a 13-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel one for selfies. Per usual, taking selfies is a huge talking point, and for that purpose, OPPO has decided to include the same AI-backed camera software driving the F7. OPPO claims the front-facing setup to be perfect for snapping bright, beautiful selfies that look great on the phone’s tall screen and on social media.
