Smartphones that specialize in taking selfies are not unusual, but among those that do it best, OPPO is recognized as the “selfie expert.”
In particular, its F1s smartphone is insanely popular in Asia because of its front camera with a whopping 16 megapixels.
But with competition stepping up its selfie game, China’s largest smartphone brand is hell-bent on keeping its title. And what better way to do so than by introducing an even better phone with not just one but two selfie cameras.
The OPPO F3 Plus that launched in simultaneous events across Southeast Asia and India today hopes to be the selfie lover’s best friend.
The first of its two selfie cameras has a wide-angle lens, the widest we’ve ever seen. With it you can take selfies that show off not just your lovely face but your bangin’ body also.
In our tests, we were able to fit up to six people in a single frame with room to spare for a couple more.
The second camera is your typical portrait-style selfie camera. You can switch between both modes with a quick tap from your camera app. Using this lens and Beauty Mode, you can take selfies with a creamy bokeh effect.
We’ve spent a week taking selfies with the F3 Plus and are thrilled with the results. If only the rest of the world could get their hands on the phone.
Speaking of hands, folks with small hands might find the F3 Plus challenging.
The phone comes with massive 6-inch display making the phone hard to grip, although if you don’t mind that, the extra screen real estate is great for watching videos and playing games.
Here’s what the phone looks like side by side with the iPhone 7 Plus.
Apart from its selfie camera specialty, the phone is designed for users who seek power and performance under $500. Of particular interest is its extra-large 4000mAh battery and lightning-quick VOOC charging.
The OPPO F3 Plus launched in the Philippines, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam on March 24. It will be available in gold and black starting April 1st and will retail for PhP 23,990 in the Philippines, INR 30,990 in India, and IDR 6.5 million in Indonesia.
