OPPO has launched its new F3 smartphone for all the selfie aficionados. The F3 packs a dual front-facing selfie camera – a high-resolution 16MP camera for standard selfies, paired with a wide-angle camera with a field-of-view that is 2 times larger than the standard selfie camera for group selfies.
The F3 also has the Beautify 4.0 pre-installed, packed into a sleek metal body design with a 5.5 inch FHD In-Cell screen, giving one of the most vivid and colorful displays in the market. Priced at AED 1,199. The F3 will be sold on May 12th in the United Arab Emirates and May 13th in India, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Myanmar.
“Selfies and group selfies have now become a social norm for our consumers. The F3 will let consumers enjoy a hassle-free group selfie experience and further reinforce OPPO’s leading position in camera phone innovation in the industry,” said Sky Li, OPPO Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business.
Selfies and group selfies reflect how people, especially the younger generation, are socializing and sharing their lives on social media. In fact, in a Nielsen survey done in India, about nine out of ten selfies are taken in the form of group selfies. The group selfie and distortion-minimizing features introduced in the earlier F3 Plus model have made it a popular hit among the consumers across Southeast Asia and South Asia.
The F3, the latest model of the Selfie Expert series to join the family, will inherit these key features and allow users to capture group selfies with an enlarged field-of-view. To enhance the sleekness without compromising the amazing sense of grip, the F3 is built with an exclusive U-rail Spray technology, which allows the body frame width to go as slim as 2.0mm and 27% thinner than the F1s.
The 5.5-inch, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 In-Cell screen features a pre-applied protective screen coating, with an upgraded screen visibility. The F3 is packed with features that will fulfill your everyday mobile-first usage. F3’s Lightning-Fast Touch Access is undoubtedly one of the quickest in the market. The home-button fingerprint reader in the F3 unlocks the phone in a mere 0.2 seconds.
The device utilizes an octa-core processor backed by 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM and offers a triple-slot card tray that can hold two Nano 4G SIM cards with a microSD card, expanding memory to up to 128GB. The remarkable rear camera offers high-quality photography performance with fast focusing speed (PDAF), giving the F3 the ability to capture clear pictures of moving subjects without a hitch. Capturing great shots at key moments has never been easier.
