After weeks of speculation, some teasing and what seems like an arduous wait, Oppo has finally taken the wraps off its highly anticipated smartphone, the Oppo N3. We think you’ve been teased enough, so we’ll go straight into its looks and features.
The smartphone is noticeably smaller than its predecessor – measuring 5.5in as compared to 5.9in previously – and it weighs just 192g. According to Oppo Singapore CEO and managing director, Sean Deng, its size was reduced to facilitate a one hand operation.
As for its build, the N3 features an industrial grade aluminium alloy micro-arc frame with a hollow out design at the bottom. It also boasts a multi-touch Gorilla Glass 3 captive touchscreen, that is also equipped with a full HD, 402ppi resolution.

A remarkable camera
Obviously, its most notable feature is its camera. Unlike its predecessor, tech wizardy makes it possible for the 16MP snapper rotates by itself. Well, it's really a smart motorised camera that can take up to 206 degrees of rotation.
According to Oppo, it is the first of such a smart motorised camera technology. You’ll be able to control the rotating camera using on-screen gestures, Touch Access or Oppo’s O-Click technology (it works like a remote control).
Some of its other features include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage (which can be expanded to up to 128GB), a 3000mAh Li-Po battery that has Oppo’s VOOC mini rapid charge technology, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor, as well as NFC and LTE functionality. It will run on Android 4.4 Colour OS 2.0.
The Oppo N3 will only come in a white colour option for now. Pricing has been fixed at US$649, which translates to approximately S$826 at time of writing.
