Last Saturday, OPPO Philippines unveiled another newly minted OPPO concept store in SM Aura. To celebrate this, they launched the new variant of their best-in-class OPPO F3, the F3 Red Limited Edition. You know that OPPO is really pushing for the F3 to be 2017’s hero product as this is their smartphone with the most number of limited variants to date. First there was the F3 Black Edition, then F3 Sarah Geronimo Limited Edition and now there’s the alluring Red Limited Edition.
The Red one is, perhaps, the loudest among the F3 with a metallic matte crimson back cover and a polished shiny yellow gold metallic trimmings and hardware.
The brand name is laser etched in gold as well giving this edition its uber premium feel.
As far as internals are concerned, the OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition is exactly the same as its previous iterations. Really, the only thing new is the color and how extremely limited this is. To refresh your memory, this is the spec highlight of the OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition.

OPPO recognizes that the update to the F3 for the Red Limited Edition is purely cosmetic hence the price of the F3 Red is no different from the price of a regular F3. For less than 16k, you can be the proud owner of this limited variant red and gold edition!
Currently the OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition is available for purchase at the SM Aura Concept Store, a bright luminescent space where your favorite OPPO phones are highlighted for you to try and fiddle with. The store opening had various activities lined up for friends in the media and OPPO’s VIP guests, part of which are these two young influencers – Coleen Garcia and Robi Domingo who graced the event with the F3 Red Limited Edition in tow.
Congratulations to OPPO Philippines for opening another stellar store (and in one of the country’s premium malls, too) and for the launch of yet another would-be best seller, the OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition.
The OPPO F3 Red Limited Edition is available in limited quantities across various OPPO concept stores and at Lazada.com.ph (they will not be available in other partner resellers).
