Oppo is continuing the tradition of smartphone announcements with its latest teaser for their new F3 and F3 Plus smartphones that will be coming soon and judging by the graphics of the teaser, it aims to bring something new to the selfie game.
The phone-maker will be making the official announcement of the two devices on March 23. The graphics represent two cameras, which means that it will have a dual-camera set up on the front of the device for more immersive selfies, we think. According to reports, the new camera module may provide DSLR-like image quality. The two new models are supposed to be the next flagship in the Oppo line-up, a successor to the F1 and F1 Plus.
The company had made numerous teasers in Indonesia and the devices have also been leaked on a few occasions online as well. The company has now sent invites to the press for its announcement event. According to Phandroid, the phone will come with the Snapdragon 635, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Plus variant is also rumoured to come with a 4000mAh battery as well.
GSMArena has uncovered a leak, seems to mention the exact specs of the devices – specifically the F3 Plus and shows that the phone will come with a 16MP camera at the back and two supposed dual-lens cameras in the front of the device which also come in at 16MP and 8MP respectively. On the sheet, however, it was mentioned that the phone will get a 6-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 5 at an FHD resolution. The phone will also come with expandable memory up to 256GB and will feature Android’s Marshmallow on-board. This makes for a capable phone, but it’s yet to be seen if the company will hold true to the given spec-sheet just yet.
The phones will probably be available in two colour variants that were mentioned in the leaked spec-sheet – Gold and Black, which are actually good choices. More manufacturers should make their phones black nowadays because it does look really good. The Vivo V5 family was the first to take advantage of a dual lens for the selfie camera module. It seems like Oppo is following suit and creating their own version of that idea as well. Whether they will actually follow through with it, however, is yet to be seen.
The mid-range wars are about to get a lot more interesting from the looks of it.
