If there's an award for being the biggest tease in town, Oppo's in the running.
In the days leading up to the Oppo N3's debut, the Chinese manufacturer’s been teasing the world with a series of images. Add one more to that list - the N3's rear facade has been revealed, along with details of its camera.
The teaser image, which was posted on its Weibo account, clearly showed that the rotating camera module will be a permanent fixture on the unit. But unlike its predecessors, there’s a certain element of style involved. The rotating module looks to be enveloped in a faux-leather finish, with a single piece of metal encasing the 16MP camera module and dual LED flash.
In another Weibo post, the company’s CEO, Tony Chen, went into detail about the camera. According to him, the 16MP snapper will have a 1/2.3in sensor. In non-geek talk, that means you'll get higher quality images with the Oppo N3.
Ahead of the rest
Chen also shared a comparison chart, pitting it against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 (which sport 1/2.6in sensors), the HTC One (M8) and Apple iPhone 6 (with 1/3in sensors), as well as the original Oppo N1's 1/3.06in sensor.
Other specifications of the device should include a 5.9in 1080p display, the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset, as well as 3GB of RAM. It’s also reported that the smartphone will come in two versions – one in stainless steel and the other in an aluminium-lithium alloy body.
The Oppo N3 will officially debut in Singapore on 29 October, so hang tight and watch this space when we bring you all the details during the big annoucement.
