Oppo F3 was launched in India earlier this month and on Saturday, the smartphone has finally gone on sale in the country, the company revealed on Monday. While the sale for the smartphone started in 25 cities across India through offline stores from Saturday, the Oppo F3 will also be available online through websites including Flipkart, Amazon, and Snapdeal at Rs. 19,990.
To recall, the highlight feature on Oppo F3 is the dual selfie camera on the smartphone. As we mentioned earlier, in terms of design, Oppo F3 looks identical to the Oppo F3 Plus that was launched in March but comes with slight downgrade in terms of specifications. However, that move seems befitting the price tag that Oppo F3 comes with, especially in comparison with the Plus variant.
