Oppo F3 Plus was announced last month and we got an early hands-on of the phone where we gave a short overview of how it actually is. Now, a month after the release of the F3 Plus, Oppo is all set to launch the mini version of the phone, the Oppo F3. The selfie focused phone is now finally making it’s way to Nepal. So, if you’ve been waiting for something remarkable to up your selfie game, then mark your calendars for May 5.

Update: Oppo F3 Launched in Nepal For Rs. 35,490. Now, it has also seen a price drop of Rs. 2,500 and is available in Nepal for Rs. 32,990 

The Oppo F3 comes with a full metal body with a pretty slick profile. It houses a 5.5-inch Full HD display with thin bezels and has 2.5D glass. It is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which will protect the display from scratches and minor drops.

The phone is powered by an unspecified MediaTek Processor and comes coupled with 4GB of RAM. Storage wise, it comes with 64GB onboard storage which can be expanded up to 256GB using a dedicated Micro SD Card slot. It also has two separate SIM card slots.

Let’s talk about the biggest asset of the phone; it’s dual front facing camera. Since it’s titled the “selfie expert”, it houses the same dual front cameras (8MP+16MP) like in the F3 Plus. The 16MP unit has f2.0 aperture so the selfies from it come out detailed and bright. The second 8MP lens is a 120° wide angle one that lets you pack all your friends in one selfie. Hence, this selfie expert is suitable for taking selfies with the wider field of view. However, the photos taken using wide angle lens seem to have lots of grains in non-ideal lighting condition. There are options to shoot selfie time-lapse and panoramas as well. Like other Oppo phones, this too comes with beauty mode for the enhancement of the selfies. There are different options to apply filters and watermarks while taking the photo. Moreover, you can also take double exposure selfies from this phone.

Oppo F3 also comes with Solid State Fingerprint sensor which will unlock the phone even if your fingers are oily or moist. This is certainly a neat feature to have! The phone is backed up by a 3200 mAh battery which is smaller than the 4000mAh battery on the F3Plus. The phone also lacks VOOC charging capability which could have enabled the phone to supercharge.
