OPPO Officially Launches F3 Plus In India

It’s finally official

While we’re all eagerly awaiting for OPPO to launch the F3 Plus in the Philippines, the Chinese company has officially launched their dual-camera smartphone in India earlier today. More and more companies are going the way of the dual-camera, though for OPPO, their implementation of the dual-camera concept is quite different. Instead of putting two cameras on the rear, they’ve put two cameras on the front for better selfies. It’s not a surprising move – OPPO’s F series of devices have long been heavily marketed to the selfie crowd, and the F3 Plus is simply the evolution of their selfie obsession.

OPPO F3 Plus Specifications

The dual-front facing camera isn’t unique to OPPO. Chinese compatriot/rival Vivo also has a front-facing, dual camera setup, as does Lenovo. But OPPO’s implementation is quite different – instead of using that secondary 8-megapixel front camera to capture depth information and create artificial bokehs, OPPO has decided instead to use it as a secondary, wide-angle camera. It’s a slight twist on LG’s G5 concept, applied to selfies. 

The reset of the phone looks pretty solid as well, sporting a unibody aluminum design, Snapdragon 653 octa-core processor, 64GB of expandable storage, 6-inch full HD display and a 16-megapixel f/1.7 rear Sony IMX398 camera.
