PASAY CITY, Philippines – OPPO launched the OPPO F3 on Thursday evening at a hotel in Pasay. The announcement comes a month after the launch of the OPPO F3 Plus.

OPPO’s recent focus on creating the perfect groufie follows a growing trend in groufies especially among younger users on social media.

“Filipinos are known for our strong relationships with family and friends,” OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. “With a phone like the F3, it becomes easier for us to turn even ordinary events into special moments with the people we love best.”

Like its predecessor the F3 Plus, the OPPO F3 is designed with a 16-megapixel selfie-focused main camera paired with a sub-camera capable of capturing groufies through a larger field of view.

This wide-angle camera also inherits the earlier model’s distortion-minimizing features to prevent image warping.

With twice the size of a selfie camera’s field of view, the secondary camera can easily include either a large group inside the picture frame or the background during a memorable trip—all without a selfie stick. This helps reduce the number of accessories needed for groufies and travel selfies.

The screen is built with 5.5-inch 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with pre-applied protective coating for unmatched durability and scratch-resistance.

Backing the OPPO F3’s advanced features is an octa-core processor supported by 4GB of RAM and a 64GB ROM. A triple-slot tray also accommodates two Nano 4G SIM cards and one micro SD card to expand memory up to 128GB.
