The long awaited launch of Oppo’s new rotating camera flagship phone is finally revealed with the launch of their latest head turner, the Oppo N3. Fans of Oppo should be excited about this new release alongside with the new R5, Oppo’s new mid-range contender.
First up, the Oppo N3 will come with a motorised rotating camera this time instead of the user having to turn the camera manually. Well, users will still be able to rotate the camera manually when needed but that is said to be the main attraction. Who wouldn’t want an automated rotating camera right? That would be cool.
The N3 will also come with a fingerprint scanner, the first one by Oppo located at the back of the phone. Their flagship Find 7 does not come with a fingerprint scanner. This means that Oppo is really putting their hopes and bet on the new N3 instead. I can see that the N3 will outshine the Find 7 in terms of consumer interest. The rotating camera and the O-Click 2.0 camera remote control will appeal to selfie lovers.
No details on the specifications yet but it is rumoured to come with Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM. I could be wrong though. Would be great to really have it come with Snapdragon 805.
As for the R5, it is said to be Oppo’s thinnest smartphone yet. It also comes with a Snapdragon octa-core CPU and 2GB of RAM.
The Oppo R5 is a replacement of the R3, the third of the “R” series. A friend of mine is using the Oppo R1. And I’m very impressed by the performance of that one. Now, I’m sure the R5 will make a good impression as well, if not better.
Here are some of the product photos from the launch.
And a video…
So what do you think of these new releases? Wanna make a shift to Oppo? Go ahead…you won’t be disappointed.
Update: It is official now that Oppo R5 is the world’s thinnest smartphone to-date at only 4.85mm. The frame is made of aluminum alloy and hand polished to only 4mm thickness. The screen size is at 5.2″ AMOLED display and powered by a 64-bit capable mid-range Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset clocking at 1.5GHz, accompanied by Adreno 405 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The 13-megapixel Sony IMX214 sensor main shooter can record a high 2160p HD format video, which is high by today’s standard. LTE connectivity is also available on this slim monster.
