Chinese smartphone vendor, Oppo has come up with a new smartphone in India, the Oppo F3 Plus, which is the company’s first dual front-facing camera smartphone. The Oppo F3 Plus is priced at Rs. 30,990 and will be up for sale from March 30. Oppo has already started taking preorders for the phone.

The Oppo F3 Plus comes with a 6-inch Full HD display and is protected by the latest Corning Gorilla Glass 5 technology and is one among the phones to feature that. Oppo is powering the phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 chipset, which is an octa-core chip and was earlier seen on other phones such as Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro. The phone has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage with support for storage expansion up to 256GB via a microSD card.
