The OPPO F3 blazed through the Philippines with a nationwide sale that began last May 13 resulting in more than 22,000 units sold in just three days. The sale followed the debut of the OPPO F3 last May 4, 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 5,000 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 OPPO F3 and F3 Plus both have dual-selfie cameras equipped with an ultra-wide-angle lens to capture a large group of people in one frame. Groufies are also enhanced by OPPO’s Beautify 4.0 software so that users always look their best. Additionally, the F3series can 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.”
Even in its early stage in the market, the OPPO F3 is praised by customers and reviewers alike because of its innovative dual selfie camera, premium metal design, large 64GB storage, and long-lasting battery life. Another highlight is the phone’s slim and lightweight appeal that gave guests a feel of luxury all for only SRP P16,990.
