Priced at Rs 19,990, the OPPO F3 fits right into the category. It is one of the first smartphones to feature a dual camera module on the front. There is a pair of 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel camera with 120-degree wide-angle view on the front. The combination not only ensures that selfies achieve the DSLR-like Bokeh effect but the wide-angle allows for wider selfies, which basically means all your friends can be accommodated in a single frame.
