Perhaps Oppo isn’t a mobile maker that we’ve heard as much in the States, it’s pretty popular in India, where it is considered the biggest rival of another Chinese mobile company – Xiaomi. Hoping to gain global popularity, Oppo is constantly expanding its lineup so as to meet the needs of various customers. Conscious of the importance of social media in our lives, the company have recently released the Oppo F3, a phone supposed to be a selfie expert with an impressive front camera.
Oppo released a new affordable handset featuring a stunning double selfie camera. Dubbed ‘selfie expert’ the 5.5-inch phablet will surely catch attention of all selfie addicted.
To begin with the handset’s biggest selling point, the Oppo F3 sports a dual selfie camera consisting of a 16MP 1.3-inch sensor and a secondary 8MP snapper. The former 76.4-degree wide-angle unit has f/2.0 aperture, while the latter features 120-degree wide-angle lens, delivering 105-degree field-of-view selfies. The phone’s users can choose which lens they want to use to achieve desired effect on their photos.
Other than that the F3 arrives with a Smart Facial Recognition which will help you decide which lens you should choose. To strengthen the quality of the shot images, Oppo equipped the handset with various camera tweaks, like Beautify 4.0 app, Selfie Panorama, Palm Shutter and Screen Flash.
Except for the impressive selfie camera, the Oppo F3 packs a 5.5-inch Full HD screen panel (401ppi of pixel density) with 2.5D curved glass protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Driven by the octa-core MediaTek MT6750T6 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and Mali-T860 GPU in charge of graphics, the device runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of box.
When it comes to storage space, the F3 comes with 64 GB of ROM you can easily expand by another 128GB using microSD cards. Quite interestingly, the phablet houses a triple-slot tray, which means that you don’t have to choose between second SIM card and microSD card any more as you can insert both of them at the same time. Kept alive by a 3,200 mAh non-removable battery the phone features 4G LTE VoLTE, WiFi, 3.5 mm audio jack and a micro-USB port.
Speaking of the external design, being a carbon copy of the Oppo F3 Plus the Oppo F3 looks like thousands of other affordable phones. It isn’t particularly original. Despite strong influences of the F3 Plus design the handset lacks the six-line antenna band found in its bigger sibling the F3 Plus. Measuring 153.3×75.3×7.3mm the handset weighs 153 grams and is available in gold color option.
As for pricing and availability, in India the Oppo F3 is already open for pre-order priced at the equivalent of $380. On May 13, the phone will hit retailer shelves. So far, the company didn’t share a news whether they plan to launch the device to the US market.
