WHILE it hasn’t been long since OPPO took the wraps off of the F3 Plus in the Philippines, it is already looking ahead to launching still another selfie expert.

This time, it’s the OPPO F3 that will strut its stuff — and by “stuff,” we are mainly referring to the two front-facing cameras on the unit, which will allow for regular and wide-angle shots. Selfie sticks need not apply here.

The F3, the F3 Plus’ kin, is fitted with a 16-megapixel cam for individual selfies, while an 8-megapixel unit sits beside it to make large group shots possible, perhaps occasionally at the cost of sharpness. It likewise features an iPhone-esque metal backplate and, per usual for a premium OPPO handset, fingerprint hardware on the front.

The OPPO F3 is said to have a 5.5-inch LCD display, less generous than what the 6-inch F3 Plus offers. We’ve yet to hear about the rest of the specs, but it is likely that a mid-end MediaTek chipset with at least 3GB of RAM will be in tow.

What we’re really hoping for, though, is that OPPO brings its impressive VOOC fast-charging technology to the F3. That would help it stand out among its competition. But that’s probably just wishful thinking.

If not, then a more-than-reasonable price should make it more interesting. We’re guessing it will be priced at P16,990, based on our knowledge of how OPPO operates — gained from our Revü Philippines partner’s time there.

We’ll have more details on the OPPO F3 when it launches in the Philippines May 4th. Cross your fingers that it doesn’t disappoint.
