After great success with its Oppo F3 Plus, Oppo has decided to launch its sibling Oppo F3 in the country. The big highlight of the device is its dual selfie Expert camera, and the smartphone is priced at Rs. 19,999. The Oppo F3 will be available for pre-order from today Exclusively at Flipkart, until May 12, and the first sale will be on May 13.

Design wise, the Oppo F3 looks identical to the Oppo F3 Plus that was launched in March. When compared to its bigger sibling, the Oppo F3 sports slightly less exciting specs, but the price tag is significantly less as well. To recap, the Oppo F3 Plus was launched at Rs. 30,990.

The F3 Plus was big, and in my review, I also pointed out how it may have been a little too big to handle. Oppo’s answer to the same comes a few months later with the launch of the smaller Oppo F3, one that comes with slightly underpowered chipset (in comparison to the F3 Plus) but packs in a similar camera setup as its bigger sibling.

Build and Design

The design remains true to Oppo’s ongoing design philosophy. It is far from the polished metal body of the F3 Plus and features a design with a plastic, glass and metal mix. The 2.5D Glass on the front gives it a premium appearance, while the metal back plate feels cool to touch when held in the hand. The plastic bits on this mid-range selfie smartphone are limited to the overall frame that surrounds the display and the buttons and at the top and bottom panels on the back. Only the area with the Oppo branding and other markings is made of metal.

Oppo F3 Camera

The dual selfie camera on the Oppo F3 bears one 16-megapixel + 8MP 1.3-inch sensor with f/2.0 aperture and double view wide-angle camera that has an 8-megapixel sensor. While the former sports a 76.4-degree wide-angle lens, the latter sports a 120-degree wide-angle lens that allows for 105-degree field-of-view group selfies. Users can choose which lens they want to use, and, the smartphone comes with a Smart Facial Recognition feature that Oppo says automatically suggests which lens is ideal. The idea behind incorporating a wide-angle lens for selfies stems from the fact that 66 percent of users have apparently told Oppo – as per a Nielsen survey – that their phone’s front camera lens isn’t wide enough to capture good group selfies. The Oppo F3 comes with various camera features, including the Beautify 4.0 app, Selfie Panorama, Screen Flash, and Palm Shutter. The F3 uses smart recognition to detect when three or more people are in the frame and automatically switches to wide-angle mode, according to Oppo. The F3, in addition, can also make do with its secondary 8-megapixel front sensor to achieve fancy bokeh effects in selfies.

Oppo F3 Specifications

The Oppo F3 also bears a fingerprint sensor on the home button, said to unlock the smartphone in as little as 0.2 seconds. The dual-SIM (Nano-SIM) Oppo F3 runs ColorOS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There’s a new feature called Clone Apps that allows you to use two WhatsApp accounts on the smartphone. The Oppo F3 bears a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) In-Cell TFT 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection and 401ppi pixel density, which was as big as the one on last year’s F1 Plus model. It is powered by a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750T6 octa-core SoC coupled with Mali-T860 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Oppo F3 can handle graphics-heavy games such as Asphalt 8 with ease. While the chipset may not be powerful in terms of performance, it is not a power hog and will sip on very little power from the battery which should deliver some good figures when it comes to battery life.

The Oppo F3 sports 64GB of inbuilt storage that’s expandable via a dedicated microSD card (up to 128GB). The smartphone bears a triple-slot tray, letting users utilise two SIM cards and one microSD card at the same time. On the rear, the Oppo F3 Plus sports a 13-megapixel 1.3-inch sensor with PDAF, and LED flash. The Oppo F3 packs a 3200mAh non-removable battery as well.
