It’s not like it was a huge surprise, what with all the not-so-subtle teasers, but the Oppo N3 is now official and puts its unique spin on the selfie revolution that is sweeping the smartphone world. As expected, the Oppo N3 employs the use of a motorized swivel camera, an upgrade over its predecessor’s fragile, manual swiveled one. What Oppo did announce alongside the Oppo N3 was the O-Click Bluetooth remote, which is primarily used to remotely take photos with the phone, but will also let you remotely change the facing of the camera with its nifty buttons. You can briefly see the remote in the launch video below:
Unlike our previous predictions, the Oppo N3 will not employ a monstrous display like the Oppo N1 did, opting instead for a very normal 5.5-inch display which will be powered by a Snapdragon 801, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 3,000mAh battery. If you’re into gimmicks, the rear of the Oppo N3 also features a fingerprint reader, which works similarly to the Apple iPhone version which requires you to tap your finger on it to use. I particularly like the fact that Oppo has kept the thin “Skyline” notification light at the bottom of the device which it first debuted on its Oppo Find 7. The Oppo N3 is going to be available in December for $649.
