Chinese handset manufacturer, Oppo has launched its new flagship smartphone in India, called Oppo N3, for whopping Rs 42,990. As per the press released, it will be available for pre-order, but at the time of writing it wasn’t available on any leading e-retailers site. The highlight of N3 is its rotating camera module like its predecessor, the Oppo N1 and N1 Mini.
The Oppo N3 has a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, thus offering pixel density of 403ppi, and the display has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection as well. This 8.7 mm thick handset (161.2 Ã— 77 Ã— 8.7 mm) weighs 192 grams. The Oppo N3 is based on the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and has Color OS 2.0 interface. It runs on a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 quad core processor and 2 GB RAM. The N2 has 32 GB of internal memory and offers additional 128 GB micro SD card slot. To run this huge smartphone, there is a 3000 mAh Li-Po battery that comes with flash charge facility.
The highlight of Oppo N3 is ofcourse its rotating camera – a 16 megapixel unit that has Schneider-Kreuznach certified lens and it claims to be able to capture pictures with maximum resolution of 64 MP. The camera has a pixel size of 1.34 micron and 5 optical lenses.
The OPPO N3’s motorized swivel camera comes with PI 2.0+ technology can track objects as they move, and can rotate up to 206 degrees. “The smartphone is equipped with a multi-frame synthesis super-sampling technique that can combine multiple low resolution RAW images into an ultra-high resolution picture with greater details,” Oppo further claimed.
The Oppo N3 has two SIM slots – one for micro SIM card and another for a nano SIM. It is compatible with 4G-LTE networks though the press release issued by Oppo India talks nothing about that. It has many other connectivity features like US OTG, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi (b/g/n/a/ac), WiFi Direct, WiFi Display, GPS and NFC.
