After hearing tons of rumors regarding company’s N3 flagship, Oppo finally announced it. Basically everything we’ve heard about the device itself came true, no matter if we’re talking about rumors or leaks. Oppo N3 sports a somewhat smaller display than its predecessor, 5.5-inch panel compared to Oppo N1’s 5.9-inch display. We’re talking about a 1080p AMOLED panel here and I think Oppo did great to offer a somewhat smaller screen size this time around considering the camera on top of the device actually makes the device higher and Oppo N1 was just too big. Don’t get me wrong, Oppo N3 is also a rather chunky device, but it’s smaller, narrower and thinner than its predecessor. That camera I’ve talked about is rather interesting though, it’s a 16-megapixel sensor which can rotate up to 206-degrees. The camera itself is attached to a motor inside the device and moves automatically when you’re shooting something, panorama shots for example. Check out our full specs list here.
The device’s frame is built out of metal and makes the device quite sturdy. As I already mentioned, that camera on the top is actually quite big and it didn’t let Oppo offer smaller bezels on the top. The company also decided to go with the capacitive buttons on the bottom instead of on-screen ones, which also doesn’t help. The device looks rather good overall though, side bezels are rather thin as well. On the back of it you’ll find a fingerprint scanner, as you can see down below. N3 measures 161.2 x 77 x 9.9mm and it weighs 192 grams. If you take a look below this article you’ll find a bunch of images of the device itself on which you can see basically everything you need to know. Let us know if you like the device and if not, what would you change.
