Oppo the popular Chinese brand has yet again launched another budget smartphone outside its stronghold China. While there was no big launch event, the company quietly announced the Oppo F3 Lite in Vietnam.
The new Oppo F3 Lite is basically a toned down version of the F3 model. It features a similar design to the higher-end model F3 but lacks dual cameras as in the F3 variant. Besides, F3 Lite features an all-metal body along with fused antenna band design which you can see at the top and bottom part of the smartphone at the back.
Apart from these let's look at what more the smartphone has to offer in terms of specs and other key features.
Display, Processor, RAM and Storage
Oppo F3 Lite comes equipped with a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720p. The display comes with the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on top for protection.
The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor which is paired with 3GB of RAM. There is 32GB of native storage inside the F3 Lite and the storage is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.
Talking about the cameras which Oppo is known for, Oppo F3 Lite is equipped with a 16MP camera at the front. The device is projected as a selfie expert who can deliver crisp clear photos with vivid clarity even in low light condition. The F3 Lite (A57) uses Sony's Stacked CMOS super-sensitive light sensor with the PDAF phase-focus technology.
"Just waving your hand to activate the shooting command is that you can comfortably impress. What's more, the new F3 Lite's (A57) font remover can blur the background to make the subject look crisp, more prominent than the photographer does not take too much adjustment effort," the company said. At the rear, the device sports a 13MP Sony sensor with PDAF and LED flash.
