Instead of relying on a selfie stick or getting someone else to take a picture, OPPO has released the OPPO F3, a smartphone to take away frustrations in capturing group selfies. The company said that group selfies have become the best way to mark an occasion; a Nielsen study done in India has even showed that six out of every 10 pictures taken with a smartphone are selfies.

Two dedicated, front-facing lenses are designed specifically to take selfies. One camera is high-resolution at 16MP for standard selfies whereas the other is a wide-angle camera with a lens that can capture a field-of-view two times larger than the standard selfie camera. A larger frame means more people can get into the picture, and means that more of the background can be captured.

*Online research conducted by Nielsen in Delhi, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Cochin and Kolkata in February 2017. One thousand and one consumers who purchased a smartphone after 2014 and took selfies at least once a week were surveyed.
