OPPO F3 and F3 Plus with Dual-Sefie Camera Coming to the Philippines?

I was at the Gaisano Mall of Davao (one of the most popular malls here in Davao City) earlier today and I was surprised to see new banner ads from OPPO Philippines already up right at the center of the mall. There are a couple of special things being revealed by these ads, first is the names of the upcoming devices they will release and the new feature users can expect from these new phones.

The banner ads shows two unannounced smartphones from OPPO and they called being referred to as F3 and F3 Plus. And then there is one more surprising and exciting feature that these phones will highlight when released, dual-selfie camera configuration. Looks like OPPO is still not done with the Selfie Expert campaign with its F1 series and that they will bring the selfie game to the next level with the F3 and F3 Plus smartphones.

Now before you get excited about all of these, let me remind you just in case you are not aware of it yet, that OPPO has not officially revealed any of these as of writing. \ The F3 and F3 Plus, and the Dual Selfie Camera thing all not official yet. So let's take everything here with a grain of salt until OPPO makes the move to formally launch these devices.

Information regarding these Oppo F3 and F3 Plus are still very limited as of the moment. In fact I really had no idea about these unannounced phones and their main selling feature until I saw the banner ads today at the mall. And since I was already there and there's an OPPO store at the second floor, I went into that store and asked Oppo representatives about these devices. I was told that they do not have the models yet in stock and they do not know as to when or if the F3 and F3 Plus will ever be available here in the Philippines.

Was it a mistake then? Well, we don't know what actually happened here if this was released in error or was released too early. But the fact that it was already posted and the promotional ads and posters were already created, someone must have approved it first right? So I guess it is safe to say that these F3 and F3 Plus really do exist and it's just matter of waiting before OPPO officially announces their new selfie-centric offerings.

What about the specs? Like I have said above, the details surrounding these new phones are still very limited as of the moment. However some Indonesian sites have already reported rumored specs of the phones. They claim that the dual selfie camera is only for the F3 Plus and it will be 20MP and 8MP combination while the rear shooter is at 16MP with PDAF and LED Flash. Additional claims said the F3 Plus will have a massive 6.0-inch Super AMOLED display with Quad HD (2560 x 1440) resolution, Snapdragon 835, 6GB RAM, 64GB storage and Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.

And as for the F3 variant, again according to these unconfirmed reports, it will have 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, Snapdragon 653, Android 7.0 Nougat. While the Plus version has two front cameras, the F3 will only have 20MP selfie shooter with 16MP camera at the back. Both devices will be equipped with fingerprint scanner and Oppo's own fast charge technology.

Currently, OPPO does not have any scheduled event here and abroad so that may actually mean that we won't be seeing these phone announced soon enough and we'll have to wait a little longer.
