Over the last year, Oppo’s presence in Egypt has grown exponentially, thanks to stream of innovative devices released into the local market – not least the Selfie Expert line, which has been particularly popular, because, well, Egyptians love a good selfie no matter what the occasion.

The latest member of the family, however, is taking the art of self-photography to another level. Forget ‘selfies’ – it’s ‘Groupfies’ that you’ll be taking all summer long.

But let us explain Oppo’s nine year-long labour of love when it comes to selfies – in fact, Andy Shi, Brand Director for OPPO Middle East and North Africa, captures it perfectly.

“The F3 was created for urban warriors, selfie photo aficionados and lifestyle mavens who want with the need to capturing flawless selfie photos.”

Does that sound like you? If so, step right up aficionados and mavens, because with almost a decade of tinkering, Oppo has mastered the selfie game like no other, but the revolutionary new F3 takes things a step further by using a dual selfie front camera – one 16MP camera and another 8MP one – to ensure that you can fit your whole crew into one photo. You don’t even have to do anything to switch the feature on – smart facial recognition software senses when there are three or more faces in the shot and switches to ‘Groupfie’ mode automatically.

And to make sure that you look you’re absolute best, the F3 also features the Beautify 4.0 camera plugin, which ensures a smoother, clearer photo, while exclusive customized pre-filters mean you can add your own creative touch. All of these features are backed up by 4GM RAM and 64GB ROM, because what use is a smooth camera without smooth hardware to work on?

The F3 is also equipped with a 16MP rear camera that is especially effective in low-light while providing crisp, clear, vivid shots, thanks to a 1/3 inch sensor and a F2.0 aperture, while the wide angle lets you capture double the space of the usual 80° cameras found on most smartphones. Its tailor-made 6P lens modules allows users to adjust the path of light and take control over potential image distortion while maximizing clarity. its uber sexy matte gold uni-body structure and ultra-fine black antenna makes it something of a fashion statement piece, too.
