The F3 Plus was designed with the technology that will take your selfies to the next level. It has the same 16MP selfie camera as the former OPPO F1s with a 1/3-inch sensor that gives your pictures clearer results even in low light. And a f/2.0 aperture for depth of field aesthetic.

But what makes the F3 Plus ahead of other smartphones lies on its additional secondary camera — the “groufie” camera. This 8MP camera has a 120-degree wide angle that lets more people to fit in a single shot. Comparing to other phones, it has a 105 percent larger than 80 percent lens field of view. It is also completed with a 6P lens to minimize the distortion of the shot.

This allows you to take groufie with your friends with the same, great image quality.

And because of this, the focusing speed increases by 40 percent even in very low lighting conditions. It also has a large f/1.7 aperture for clearer, crisper and amazing pictures.
