Oppo N3 smart rotating camera gets a demo video

OppoN3Teaser

Just like the Oppo N1, the Oppo N3 is going to feature a rotating camera. However, this time you don’t have to manually move it. It will sport a motor for automatic rotations.

How do we know this? A rather official video was posted showing how it works. It’s referred to a “Smart rotating camera,” which implies that it will automatically move based on what mode or setting the user selects. In other words, if you go into selfie mode, it will simply rotate on its own.

You can check out the video after the break.

The line of leaks surrounding the Motorola DROID TURBO from Verizon got a little longer today with another image and details about the device surfacing.

Second source claims Google to launch Nexus 9 running Android L on October 15th

think_with_google_alleged_nexus_9_post_shutterstock

An unnamed source described as “close” to Google indicates the company plans to officially announce the Nexus 9 tablet and a new Nexus smartphone on Wednesday, October 15th. The source says Google will make the announcement via a blog post instead of doing it via a big, splashy event. The source indicates the reason for the lack of a “big reveal” was to give programmers more time to iron out some final tweaks in Android L. It is worth noting though that Apple has an event scheduled for Thursday when it is thought updates to their tablet lineup will be revealed, so Google may be trying to get a jump on the press and make sure consumers have something to compare any new iPad devices against.

Verizon to launch Motorola Droid Turbo at an event on October 28th

Verizon_DROID_Turbo_Event_2014

Just a few days ago, Verizon “accidentally” tweeted an image of the upcoming Motorola Droid Turbo, and then quickly pulled that image. It wasn’t the first time the Turbo had leaked, with a user manual making the rounds earlier in the week. Today we have the final piece of the puzzle as Verizon has put a countdown clock on their site, redirected from DroidDoes.com. The countdown shows a phone identical to what we’ve already seen and ends on October 28th, the same day as an upcoming Verizon event (the flyer for which features the same image as the countdown clock), so it is safe to assume that the Turbo will launch that day.
