In the last few months, OPPO launched a couple of variants of the OPPO F3 called as Black Edition and Deepika Padukone Limited Edition. For the upcoming festival season, OPPO came up with yet a new variant of the OPPO F3 called “OPPO F3 Diwali Limited Edition” smartphone. The new limited edition device packs the same hardware as on the original OPPO F3 launched in early 2017. However, this new variant comes in Red color along with new wallpapers and icons. It is priced at Rs. 18,990 and will be exclusively sold through Amazon India and OPPO retail stores starting September 29th.
OPPO is also offering an exclusive cricket bat signed by the Indian Cricket team along with the every purchase of OPPO F3 Diwali Limited Edition smartphone. It sports a metal body design with a 2.5D curved glass on the front. Though the body of the device comes in red color, the antenna bands, OPPO logo, and camera ring are in the golden hue. The front-facing home button on this device comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection on the top.
