Over 22,000 OPPO F3 Units Sold in just Three Days

OPPO Philippines is right now shaking the selfie market in the country in terms of sales of its recently launched F3 smartphone, aka the Group Selfie Expert. Why? Well, according to OPPO, they have just managed to sell more than 22,000 units of F3 in just three days since launch.

The nationwide sale of OPPO F3 began on May 13 following its debut on May 4, 2017 and joining its predecessor, the F3 Plus, in driving the "groufie trend" or taking selfies with a group, as iconized by the brand.

The weekend sale was spearheaded by roadshows in Glorietta Makati and SM Ecoland Davao along with more than 5000 OPPO authorized resellers nationwide. At the Makati leg of the tour, O-Fans got the chance to catch actress Ella Cruz perform a stunning dance number before joining her in taking groufies with fans during the first day sale.

The main highlight of these F3 series from OPPO is the two selfie cameras set up on the front panel of the devices. These dual cameras are equipped with a wide angle lens to capture a large group of people in one frame even without using selfie sticks or monopods. Groufies are also enhanced by OPPO's Beautify 4.0 software so that users always look their best. In addition to preserving great group photos, the F3 devices can also do "bokeh effect" which further blurs the background of the focused subject for a more dramatic shot.
"The OPPO F3 is a testimony of what users today look in a smartphone, delivering the latest trend with our innovative groufie camera, premium design and practical package," OPPO Philippines Brand Marketing Manager Stephen Cheng said. "Additionally, it surpasses the sales figures of its predecessor, which is a sign of OPPO's continuous growth in the Philippines." Cheng added.

To give you a quick comparison, when OPPO F1s was released in August last year, OPPO claimed over 19,000 units were sold in the same three-day span. Then when OPPO F3 Plus was launched in April, more than 8,000 units were sold after one week of release. And just an additional details, the OPPO F1s was the best selling smartphone in the Q4 of 2016 according to GfK, a German-based market research company.

Clearly OPPO is being well received by more and more Filipino consumers as their new choice of device for all of their selfie and groufie needs and it appears that OPPO still has more exciting smartphone technologies to offer in the future.
