Oppo’s New F3 Plus Takes a Shot at the Selfie Camera Crown

Oppo, quite well-known for its selfie-themed phones, is back with a new offering for the said market. However, this time around, the emphasis is on the hardware side rather than software features.

The F3 Plus comes with two lenses: a large 16 MP 1/3-inch sensor alongside an 8 MP one with 120-degree wide-angle and 6-element lens. The uneven setup is not much different from past solutions by HTC and Huawei, and is aided by software namely Oppo’s Beauty 4.0 mode which smoothens skin texture and modifies background.

The camera on the back is no slouch either, coming with a 16-megapixel sensor with LED Flash, phase-detection autofocus, 1.4 micron pixels and a large f/1.7 aperture. It was developed in co-operation with Sony.

The F3 Plus comes with a large 6-inch 1080p display on the front running Android Marshmallow with Color UI 3.0, below which sits a fingerprint scanner. The metal-finished phone comes in either Gold or Black.

Under the hood is the Snapdragon 653 octa-core processor, alongside 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage. The battery capacity is set at 4000 mAh with fast-charging support.

As for the price, the F3 Plus will come for around $475, which to most people will be OnePlus 3T territory. However, the comparison is between apples and oranges at this point, and in a different market the F3 Plus can be the best phone you can buy.

        OnePlus 3 and 3T are most valuable and powerful phones of 2016 and first choice of famous YouTubers

        • BADAR

          But its not available in Pakistan, so Pakistanis are eager about it.

          • Adeel

            It is available at all leading online stores of Pakistan jani except Daraz

            • BADAR

      • OnePlus and OPPO both are subsidiaries of BBK Electronics and I almost forgot about Vivo. BBK will introduce another brand by the end of this year that will cater the luxury market.

        • BADAR

          • Yes it is.
            Vivo+Oppo+Plus = BBK

            • BADAR

              Yeah good

  • Muhammad Tayyab

    Oppo price for this fone is far higher than any brand with such specs like Xiaomi Mi Max Prime or vivo or Samsung Galaxy A7, .. On the other hand OnePlus 3T is the most best choice within same limit. This fone must be priced at 30000PKR. Priced par higher than expectations.

    Mi 6 is going to be launched in April against 299$ with Snapdragon 835, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB memory with much better display and build quality. And most importantly with latest Android version and a definite future update.

    So Dear OPPO Thanks but no thanks.

    • But Wait till 2018 for Mi6 official launch in Pakistan.

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        I am not pessimist like you. Sorry
