OPPO F3 Black Edition is Coming to the Philippines on June 13

So when I heard that OPPO Philippines was also bringing in the smaller F3 variant in the country like a couple of weeks after the F3 Plus was released locally, I assumed they would also release one in Matte Black Edition alongside the Gold ones just like what they did with the bigger variant. The launch came, and there was not black edition that was revealed nor even mentioned. So I thought that was it. No OPPO F3 in black would be coming out, and one of the reasons that lead me to believe it was because both the F3 series, apart from their sizes, they also do not sport the same design on the back panel. Turns out I, together with all other OPPO fans here in the Philippines, was wrong.

The OPPO F3 Plus in black edition is the most famous, sleek, and beautiful color variant of the model. A lot of tech, gadget, and OPPO devices enthusiasts immediately fell in love with this particular color variant that a lot of them waited for the black to come out before buying one. Now of course the F3 Plus is just too big for many users and would really like to get a smaller version. So what happened, many waited for the F3 and most especially in black color. But like I told above, there was no hint at all that an F3 in black color would be released, until yesterday.

OPPO Philippines posted a teaser on their Facebook page with a caption that says, "Make way for the newest and gorgeous in town. #ComingSoon". See below.

So when it's going to be released? Well, in case you have not seen it in the image above yet, it is going to be on June 13, 2017. In terms of price and specs, if OPPO is to follow what they did with the F3 Plus version, which is most likely is the case, everything remains the same.
