OPPO F3 Red Edition Price, Specs, Features : Coming To the Philippines

Chinese handset maker OPPO Mobile is expected to formally launch the OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition in the Philippines within this month, August 2017.

Hot on the heels of the success of the Gold and Black variants of the same midrange handset model, the OPPO F3 Red should provide another attractive color option for consumers who see their smartphones as a representation of their style and personality.

A symbol of power, good fortune, courage, and prestige, Red has historically been a very popular choice of color for people who want to infuse positive vibes in their lives.

It's also a great option for fashion-forward consumers who want their gadgets to exude an air of exclusivity and to reflect their stand-out persona.

I would like to give credit to Mr. Tony Phung of Vietnam for all OPPO F3 Red photos in this post.

As shown in these images, OPPO F3 Red will have an all Black face, which perfectly complements Metallic Red finish of the aluminum back plate. I believe this look is largely similar to that of the OPPO R9s Red version.

As for the phone's specs and features, well, it should be exactly the same as that of the Gold and Black editions.

OPPO F3 Red will have a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display, 13 MegaPixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, LED flash, phase detection autofocus and 1.12 µm pixel size, a non-removable 3,200 mAh battery pack, 4G LTE connectivity support, and Dual SIM Dual Standby capability.

Under the hood, this handset runs its Color OS 3.0 flavored Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with a 64-Bit Octa Core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and Mali-T860MP2 GPU based Mediatek MT6750T processor, has 4GB of RAM, and comes with 64GB of storage that you can quickly beef up using the dedicated microSD card slot, which means that there's no need to compromise Dual SIM capability.

The top selling point of the OPPO F3 is its Dual Front-Facing Camera that's comprised of a 16 MegaPixel f/2.0 optic with standard field of view for regular selfies plus a wide-angle 8 MegaPixel f/2.4 lens for group photos or groufies. This unique set-up benefits from OPPO's own Beautification Mode, which instantly improves selfie shots by evening out the user's skintone and highlighting his or her good facial features, delivering self-portraits that are instantly ready for sharing on social media.

OPPO Philippines has started posting teaser photos of the OPPO F3 Red Edition on its official Facebook page, which tells us that the handset should be officially launched within the next few days. As yet, though, the company hasn't disclosed the exact release date nor pricing information for this version. We are inclined to believe, however, that OPPO F3 Red will still have the same Php 15,990 price tag of the other versions. Here's to hoping that's the case -- but we'll let you know if OPPO Philippines ends up pricing it a bit higher.

Update: OPPO F3 Red has just been officially launched in the Philippines via a media and consumer event held at SM Aura in Bonifacio Global City on August 12, 2017. The handset is now available at all OPPO Stores nationwide for Php 15,990, which is just the same as the price of the Gold, Rose Gold, Black, and Sarah Geronimo Editions or Versions.
