The F3 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based Color OS 3.0, and Oppo is pre-installing a new app store called as Oppo App Store in the F3 in particular for the Indian market.
Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and micro USB port. Powering the entire package is a 3,200mAh battery. The Oppo F3 is priced at Rs. 19,990 and comes in only one variant.
