The F3 is the second in line dual front camera Selfie Expert, targeted towards the Group Selfie generation after the recently launched F3 Plus.
The F3 features a dual front camera – a 16-megapixel Selfie camera for individual selfies and a wide-angle lens for group selfie.

Dual selfie camera – ‘One for Selfie, One for Group selfie’
‘One for Selfie, One for Group selfie’, the Double View Group Selfie Camera gives a larger field-of-view, twice larger view than a normal selfie camera. The 6P lens maintains a high-level of professional image quality with minimal image distortion. This ensures that one clicks perfect Group Selfies!
For one’s individual selfies, one can switch to the other front camera, which utilizes 16 MP resolution, 1/3-inch sensor and a large f/2.0 aperture. It sports high dynamic range, vivid depth and minimized noise. Comparing to previous F1s, OPPO made further improvements and optimization to its performance. Under a strongly-lit background, the selfie will not be over-exposed, and the overall image is more real. When shooting in a poorly-lit place or at night, the noise granularity is also significantly reduced to make the selfie more vivid and clear.
The OPPO F3 is also equipped with a 13 MP rear camera that has a 1/3-inch sensor. It is able to maximize light sensitivity, making for wonderful night time performance. PDAF technology makes for a snappy and fluid shooting experience. Even with moving subjects, the F3 focuses without a hitch. Capturing great shots at key moments has never been easier.
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.
The F3 gets a higher energy density 3200mAh battery, which gives the phone even longer endurance. Company claims that in real use simulation test, it lasted for more than 15 hours.
Privacy protection and security is also a top priority. The F3 uses an advanced solid-state fingerprint reader, so that only a slight touch is enough to unlock the device. Equipped with a hydrophobic membrane, the fingerprint reader has an enhanced success rate even when a user’s fingers are moist.
