Coming to the USP of the smartphone, given that it is a selfie-centric smartphone, the front camera is where OPPO seems to have paid more attention. In order to achieve wider group selfies or have more depth in individual portraits, the dual-camera setup comes to play. The OPPO F3 is also speculated to pack a combination of 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel camera with 120-degree wide-angle view on the front. This combination works the same way as on the Vivo V5 Plus. However, the latter boasts a 20-megapixel sensor with 8-megapixel sensor for depth.
Other than the selfie-focused front camera, the OPPO F3 is expected to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera with video recording capabilities of up to 1080p. Fuelling the smartphone is said to be a 3,200mAh battery but without any support for fast charging.
In terms of connectivity, the OPPO F3 could feature 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and hybrid dual SIM (Nano + Nano). On the software front, it is likely to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ColorUI 3.0 layered above.
