Another day closer to the announcement of the N3 and we have another leaked photo. This time, we’re looking at the entire backplate of the device and it reveals one very important thing. The N3 will sport a fingerprint scanner. Besides that we see the new camera in all its glory. From what we know the device will feature various materials including an aerospace alloy (lithium alloy) and steel. We’re less than two weeks away from the big unveil. Of course at the rate that the Oppo N3 is “leaking,” we may know everything there is to know about the device.
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.
Yesterday a new image surfaced from OPPO showing the new camera for the upcoming OPPO N3 smartphone. This ended lots of speculation and rumors about what form the rotating camera may take. Now the CEO of OPPO released a new image using his Weibo account to share some details about the camera. The biggest news to come from the image is that the sensor will measure 1/2.3-inches in size. This is a sizeable improvement compared to the sensor in the OPPO N1 that measured 1/3.06-inches.
As we roll ever closer to Oppo’s announcement of the N3 flagship, we’re seeing more and more teasers from the company. From specs to an updated cooling system, to a aerospace-grade alloy (and steel), the N3 is shaping up to be an interesting and powerful device. Despite Oppo showing us various camera designs, the whole thing remained a bit of a mystery. Those that remember the N1 know that the camera swiveled, giving people unprecedented selfie power long before selfie phones became a thing. Well Oppo has finally taken a bit of the mystery away after it leaked the above image on Weibo.
For the third time in recent weeks a leaked image purports to show the design of the camera to be included in the forthcoming OPPO N3 and this one shows the third design we have now seen for the camera. The initial leak revealed a device with a barrel type enclosure along the top edge of the device to house the camera. The second leak showed a standard looking device with a camera that would rotate within the frame. This third leak shows a camera that pops out from a slot in the side of the smartphone similar to a SIM card slot.
Oppo’s N3 is the big phone that everyone’s talking about as its release nears.
Since Oppo first teased its brand new flagship, the N3, we’ve seen a number of leaks come out showcasing the new cooling system, hinting at a new design and even suggesting the phone will come in an aerospace grade metal body. Well the company has come out and confirmed the aerospace metal in a new teaser on its Facebook page. The photo also makes mention of a stainless steel body for those who prefer a little heft (and possibly less out of their wallet) to their phone.
Yesterday OPPO hinted that the OPPO N3 will be built out of an “aerospace grade metal.” Today, a new Weibo posting from OPPO asks readers if they know what the lightest metal element is. The answer to that question is Lithium, suggesting that could be a primary element used to construct the new device.
We’ve seen a few leaks of the upcoming Oppo N3, and details are slowing trickling in. The latest information is that the body will be built out of aerospace grade metal.
What the hell does that exactly mean? It could be made from either stainless, nickel steel, or titanium. We know they will be shooting for lightweight so don’t expect anything too crazy or expensive. Maybe a lightweight alloy? Could this just be a marketing gimmick?
Now that the Oppo N3 has been teased and leaked, we’re starting to find out a little more information regarding the new flagship device.One thing that still plagues smartphones and mobile phones is the fact that, on occasion, they get a wee bit toasty. Throw in the problems with lower performance and a decrease in the lifespan of the device and it becomes an issue. Enter Oppo.
