Oppo seems to be not holding back anymore with the Oppo F3 Plus. The Chinese company was teasing the smartphone from the past couple of weeks or so and will be announcing the phone tomorrow. However, before the official launch, the phone gets listed on the company site revealing all the specifications, but the listing was removed immediately.
As teased, the Oppo F3 Plus comes with a dual front-facing camera, same as the Vivo V5 Plus launched recently. The Oppo F3 Plus features two sensors on the front- a 16MP standard sensor to capture bright shots and another 8MP sensor for capturing 120° shots wide-angle shots. The F3 Plus also has a 16MP sensor at the rear side of the phone, which is the same camera used in Oppo R9s with Sony IMX398 sensor and a larger f/1.7 aperture. So, expect the same camera performance as the Oppo R9s.
As the name itself suggests, the F3 Plus comes with a 6-inch Full HD screen with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels. The display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology. The design of the smartphone resembles a lot with the Oppo R9s, but the new entrant has a bigger screen. Under-the-hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 chipset, which is an octa-core chip seen on smartphones such as Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro.
Oppo has added 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage in the phone, which can be expandable with a microSD card. Oppo teased the VOOC charging technology in the phone, and a 4000mAh battery backs the F3 Plus. Do make a note that OnePlus’s Dash Charge technology is built on Oppo’s VOOC tech.
The Oppo F3 Plus boots Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow based Color OS 3.0. The major issue with Oppo is they won’t provide any software updates. To recall, the Oppo F1s was launched with Android 5.1 Lollipop and still did not receive any update for Android Marshmallow nor Nougat.
Having said that, the phone will be launching in India as well, but we don’t know the exact launch date and the price of the phone. We will keep you updated as always. Keep checking this space for more info related to Oppo F3 Plus.
