In a press event in New Delhi, OPPO announced the launch of its first ever smartphone with dual cameras, the OPPO F3 Plus. OPPO has in recent past focused on smartphone camera technology, and the brand also has been renamed to ‘OPPO Camera Phone’.

The highlight of the OPPO F3 Plus is the dual front camera, dubbed as ‘dual selfie camera’ by the company. It sports a unibody metal design with a Screen-to-Body ratio of 80.6%, and is just 7.35mm thin.
