OVE over, Apple. Samsung is taking back what it lost in the last quarter of 2016. And it has the numbers, courtesy of market-research company IDC, to back it up.
HILE 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.
E know OPPO is working on a dual-camera system that will offer 5x lossless zoom — without bulges, might we add. What remains elusive is when a phone with such camera capabilities will launch. That may change soon.
EFORE Samsung Electronics Philippines even finishes taking preorders for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, it will introduce the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (click for complete specs) to the local market.
WO premium phones debuted in the Philippines the past few days. In one corner, there’s the new OPPO F3 Plus; in another, the OnePlus 3T, which has been around long enough and should be familiar to anyone keeping tabs on international-bound iPhone rivals for less money.
PPO has had a history of making front-facing cameras seem far more important and useful than their back-facing counterparts, so it’s really not at all surprising to see its latest effort, the OPPO F3 Plus (click for complete specs), make use of a two-camera setup for selfies, as opposed to anything else.
INALLY, there’s another smartphone that has two front cameras in the Philippines. Today, OPPO Philippines has officially launched the OPPO F3 Plus (click for complete specs), an addition to the company’s Selfie Expert line of handsets.
HE leaks started several days ago, when images of local ads starring South Korean star G-Dragon for the new OPPO F3 and F3 Plus surfaced online and spread like wildfire among international news outlets. Sought for comment on earlier reports, OPPO Philippines simply told us to wait for an official announcement. And so we waited.
HE dust has settled on OPPO’s Mobile World Congress [MWC] 2017 presentation, and we now know for sure what the company has kept under wraps for weeks. Surprisingly, we’re not getting a new phone, but rather a new camera technology that we might see down the road. Sooner rather than later, we hope.
NE company’s misfortune could lead to another manufacturer’s success. In this case, Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 problem caused the tech giant to settle for second place in the smartphone category in the fourth quarter of 2016.
