Oppo F3 price in India has been slashed. The mobile phone which was launched at Rs. 19,990 is now available in the country with a price tag Rs. 16,990. However, listings on Amazon and Flipkart were not reflecting the price cut at the time of filing this story.
Oppo launched the Oppo F3 phone (back) in May 2017 with an original price of Rs. 19,990. But earlier this year, the Chinese Oppo company dropped its price to Rs. 18,990 silently alongside launching a Diwali Limited Edition variant. The phone is a cheaper variant of the Oppo F3 Plus smartphone that was debuted in March.
The Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) based Oppo F3 runs ColorOS 3.0 and features a 5.50-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors (1080 pixels by 1920 pixels) In-Cell 2.5D curved display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The device is powered by an Octa-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53, Mediatek MT6750T processor, coupled with Mali-T860 GPU and 4GB of RAM. It sports 64GB of internal storage that is expandable via a dedicated up to 128GB microSD card slot. There is a triple-slot tray that accepts two SIM cards and one microSD card. Further, the handset has a 13 MP camera sensor and LED flash and a dual-camera setup with one 16 MP 1.3-inch sensor with f/2.0 aperture lens and an 8 MP secondary sensor with 120-degree wide-angle lens.
Oppo has provided its proprietary Smart Facial Recognition feature on the Oppo F3 that automatically suggests which lens is ideal for taking self-portrait shots. Also, the phone has features such as the Beautify 4.0, Selfie Panorama, Screen Flash, and Palm Shutter.
The Oppo F3 phone packs a 3200mAh nonremovable battery. In terms of connectivity, the device has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS (A-GPS), 3.5mm audio jack, and Micro-USB.
Importantly, the latest price cut makes the Oppo F3 phone a strong contender against the Huawei Honor 7X and Moto G5S Plus that both are among the top-selling phones under Rs. 20,000 price bracket. The phone also gives a tough competition to the ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro that was debuted at Rs. 23,999 in India to deliver an enhanced selfie-taking experience.
