In an event held at the City of Dreams Manila, OPPO Philippines officially launched their newest flagship device, the OPPO F3 Plus.
While the F3 Plus retains most of the design elements of its predecessor, it does offer significant upgrades. It has a larger 6-inch Full HD display, a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 Octa-Core processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery.
Where the F3 Plus shines the most though, is in the imaging department, starting with the 16MP rear camera which uses an exclusive Sony IMX 398 sensor, and also features Dual PDAF, which increases focusing speed by up to 40% regardless of the lighting condition.
The F3 Plus lets you take better groufies with its Dual Front-Facing camera setup composed of 16MP and 8MP snappers, with the latter sporting a 120° wide-angle lens. The smart facial recognition feature also intelligently detects when more than three people are in a scene, and alerts the user to switch to the wide-angle lens for better quality.
Other features include a lighting-fast fingerprint sensor which unlocks the device in just 0.2 seconds, OTG, and VOOC Rapid Charging.
The OPPO F3 Plus will be initially available in Gold color starting April 1, 2017 for PhP23,990. As a special promo, you’ll also get a free Bluetooth Headset and Selfie Stick if you pre-order your unit from any OPPO concept store, selected dealer store, or from the company’s official online shop in Lazada from March 24 to 31, 2017.
Home Credit will have a nine-month instalment plan at zero percent interest for the F3 Plus, and OPPO has also partnered with Globe for the device to be offered on postpaid (More details soon).
