OPPO caters to group selfie trends with latest launch
The F3 pairs a 16MP camera for standard selfies with a wide-angle camera with a field-of-view two times larger than the standard selfie camera for group selfies
OPPO is launching the F3, a smartphone model designed to inspire users take better and more inclusive selfies.
The F3 packs a dual front-facing selfie camera - a high-resolution 16MP camera for standard selfies, paired with a wide-angle camera with a field-of-view that is 2 times larger than the standard selfie camera for group selfies.
The F3 also has the Beautify 4.0 pre-installed, packed into a sleek metal body design with a 5.5 inch FHD In-Cell screen. Priced at 1,199 AED. The F3 will be sold on May 12th in the United Arab Emirates and May 13th in India, Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines and Myanmar.
“Selfies and group selfies have now become a social norm for our consumers. The F3 will let consumers enjoy a hassle-free group selfie experience and further reinforce OPPO’s leading position in camera phone innovation in the industry,” said Sky Li, OPPO Vice President and Managing Director of International Mobile Business.
Selfies and group selfies reflect how people, especially the younger generation, are socialising and sharing their lives on social media. In fact, in a Nielsen survey done in India, about nine out of ten selfies are taken in the form of group selfies. The group selfie and distortion-minimizing features introduced in the earlier F3 Plus model have made it a popular hit among the consumers across Southeast Asia and South Asia. The F3, the latest model of the Selfie Expert series to join the family, will inherit these key features and allow users to capture group selfies with an enlarged field-of-view.
Days of struggling to fit all members of a big family into a selfie shot at a family gathering, accidentally cropping out or leaving out team members after a match, or cropping out the background of a great tourist attraction, or lugging along a selfie stick to capture the best photo angles for selfies and group selfies may be coming to an end thanks to OPPO F3’s 2x field-of -view.
The F3 is built with an exclusive U-rail Spray technology, which allows the body frame width to go as slim as 2.0mm and 27% thinner than the F1s.
The aluminium body has gone through 220 fine zirconium sandblasting treatments to achieve its glossy yet natural texture. The 5.5-inch, 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 In-Cell screen features a pre-applied protective screen coating, with an upgraded screen visibility.
The home-button fingerprint reader in the F3 unlocks the phone in a mere 0.2 seconds.
The device is powered by an octa-core processor backed by 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM and offers a triple-slot card tray that can hold two Nano 4G SIM cards with a microSD card, expanding memory to up to 128GB.
The rear camera offers high-quality photography performance with fast focusing speed (PDAF), giving the F3 the ability to capture clear pictures of moving subjects without a hitch. Capturing great shots at key moments has never been easier.
