OPPO unveils F3 Plus Smartphone

OPPO has launched F3 Plus. The F3 Plus features the brand’s first dual-front camera, including 120-degree wide-angle Group Selfie Camera. The F3 Plus First Sale begins from 1st April, 2017 across India. It will also be available in OPPO online stores on Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal. The pre-order starts from now till 31st March, 2017.


OPPO’s New Brand Ambassador, youth icon and Bollywood superstar – Deepika Padukone and renowned photographer – Dabboo Ratnani also shared their own selfie experience with OPPO F3 Plus during the event.


OPPO F3 Plus delivers great selfie photos through the revolutionary dual selfie front cameras: a 16-megapixel camera for selfie and a 120-degree wide-angle lens for group selfie. The rear camera is co-developed with Sony, equipped with a customized IMX398 sensor for serious photography. The F3 Plus is a high-end smartphone that is efficient, long-lasting, secure and beautiful, addressing today’s highly-demanding mobile-first world.


“OPPO is an industry leader in the Selfie Revolution with the recent “Selfie Experts” F-series. Our brand has been growing rapidly across Southeast Asia and other regions around the world. As per the GFK data, we became the No. 2 smartphone brand in the Indian offline market last year. The dual selfie camera F3 Plus marks a new ‘Group Selfie’ trend, and reinforces our position as the Selfie Expert,” said Sky Li, Global VP & President of OPPO India.


“It’s amazing to see the way OPPO has identified the nerves of the Indian youth and the trend – Selfies. Wherever I go, I find people taking selfies. I’m excited that I have also joined the wagon!” said Deepika Padukone. OPPO also shared the new TVC at the launch event.


The F3 Plus features dual-front selfie camera. The 16-megapixel front camera builds upon the technology offered by the previous “Selfie Expert” F1s. At the core of this camera is a 1/3-inch sensor, which helps increase light exposure and clarity of images. The large f/2.0 aperture allows for great depth-of-field effects – clear foreground focus matched with the perfect amount of background blurriness.


It has a specialized 120-degree wide-angle 8MP camera which captures a wider view, up to 105-per cent more than a regular 80-degree lens field of view. The camera also packs an 8-megapixel camera featuring a ¼-inch sensor. With the built-in Smart Facial Recognition, the F3 Plus will notify users to switch to “Group Selfie” mode if there are more than three people in the frame. Users can snap their Group Selfie at ease, without compromising image stability when taking selfie with one hand.


The rear camera offers high-quality photography performance with fast focussing speed, noise reduction and advanced low-light performance. Powering the 16-megapixel rear camera is a brand-new 1/2.8-inch IMX398 sensor. This sensor is jointly developed by OPPO and Sony, which features Dual PDAF – dual phase detection autofocus technology. This new technology doubles the sensor’s pixel array area where the photodiodes are embedded, necessary for phase detection autofocus. This makes for 40-per cent faster focussing speeds even in low light. Paired with the large f/1.7 aperture, the resulting images are clear and breathtaking.


The 4,000mAh built-in battery gives the F3 Plus endurance of more than 17 hours in simulation test of real use. Through OPPO’s proprietary and industry-leading rapid VOOC Flash Charge Solution, the battery will charge four times faster than standard batteries. Users can get up to two hours of talk-time with just 5 minutes of charging.


The OPPO F3 Plus is fast, utilizing an octa-core processor backed by 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. It also offers a dual-slot card tray that can hold two Nano 4G SIM cards or one Nano SIM card with a microSD card, expanding memory to up to 256GB. OPPO’s leading optimized ColorOS 3.0 system ensures superb speed with reduced energy consumption and flawless performance with built-in Privacy Protection feature and virus scanner.


The F3 Plus’ Lightning-Fast Touch Access is undoubtedly one of the quickest in the market. The home-button fingerprint reader in the F3 Plus unlocks the phone in a mere 0.2s. The fingerprint reader is even more versatile with the fingerprint-activated calling and app launch functions.


The F3 Plus is constructed with a metal unibody and carefully crafted for a better sense of hand-gripping, resulting in a sleek and thin smartphone that is a wonder to hold. The 6-inch, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen features a pre-applied protective screen coating, giving it an elegant, classy and premium look while retaining unmatched durability.The ‘Six-String’ ultra-fine antenna is a design rethought by OPPO, removing the ubiquitous, thick pair of white antenna lines seen in previous smartphone models.


The F3 Plus comes in Gold and Black. Priced at Rs 30,990, the Gold variant of the F3 Plus will be available from 1st April, 2017 both online and offline. It will be available in OPPO stores across India and online stores on Flipkart, Amazon and Snapdeal. The pre-order starts from today till 31st March, 2017. OPPO is also giving a special gift pack for all pre- orders purchases made both online and offline. There is also a Black colour variant for the F3 Plus which will be available later.
