Local Replication is a process in which multiple copies of data are stored within a storage container. These copies exist for fault tolerance. Snapshots are placed locally on the same cluster as the source VM. Thus, If a physical disk fails, the cluster can recover data from another copy. The cluster manages the replicated data, and the copies are not visible to the user.
So, what is the difference the Replication Factor option? Because RF is used too for fault tolerance in case of a physical disk failure (or node, ...)
