Taking selfies a step further, the much awaited and upgraded Group Selfie Expert OPPO F3 was recently launched in the Indian market. Pre-orders were taken across India from May 4th – May 12th. The brand also had a lucky draw through the pre-order entries, and announced today that three lucky winners had won themselves an opportunity to see the ICC finals live in London! At the event, pre-order consumers not only became the first set of consumers to get the device but also got the chance to receive surprise gifts at the venue!
“OPPO as a brand has always been learning from our consumers and focusing towards offering excellent products. With consumers demanding a camera phone that overcomes challenges and clicks perfect Group Selfie, we have launched the OPPO F3. “Said Mr. Sky Li, Global VP & President of OPPO India. He added, “We have kick-started our First Sale today for F3 and hope that it reaches consumers across the country. We hope that the new Selfie Expert gives consumers another reason to spend time with friends and family and click Group Selfies!”
The First Sale was inaugurated by Bollywood celebrities in different cities – Sidharth Malhotra in Delhi, Shraddha Kapoor in Mumbai and Rana Daggubati in Bangalore. They also shared their selfie experience and gave out signed devices and gifts to the first set of consumers during the event.
Set to be the next ultimate ‘Selfie Expert,’ the F3 features a dual front camera – a 16-megapixel Selfie camera for individual selfies and a wide-angle lens for the group selfie. The Double View Group Selfie Camera gives a larger field-of-view, twice as wide as a normal selfie camera. The 6P lens maintains a high-level of professional image quality with minimal image distortion. This ensures that you click perfect Group Selfies. The OPPO F3 is also equipped with a 13 MP rear camera that has a 1/3-inch sensor. It can maximize light sensitivity, making for wonderful night-time performance.
The F3 gets a higher energy density 3200mAh battery which gives you even longer endurance. In our real use simulation test, it lasted for about 15 hours! That means, it can save you the inconvenience of bringing the heavy power-bank or look for chargers again and again on your trip.
The F3 is equipped with an octa-core processor, 4 GB RAM, and 64 GB ROM backed by the ColorOS 3.0, assuring a seamless and snappy performance. The embedded triple-slot card tray allows two nano-SIM cards and a microSD card to work simultaneously.
With a lighter and thinner 5.5-inch body, the F3 contributes to a matchlessly comfortable grip. The smooth texture of the lustrous metal back panel repels dust and is a pleasure to hold. Every detail of the F3 comes together to give an impression of mercurial grace and beauty. Equipped with in-cell technology, the FHD in-cell display of F3 decreases 1/4 of the normal screen thickness, thus giving the whole screen a high rate of penetration and a bright image. So, what you see will be noticeably more brilliant and vibrant even in the sunlight.
