Welcome, Oppo N3 to India, the flagship smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer.
The device is just launched in the country for the price of 42,990INR while it was announced back in October 2014. This is the second device launched in India after Mirror 3 in February.
Due to the availability of Motorola Moto Turbo and Google Nexus 6 in the same price range, Oppo N3 looks a little bit outdated. But, not to forget, it got that unique rotating camera on the top, which can still work as the selling point.
The device features 5.5 inch full HD display and runs on Android 4.4 based Color OS 2.0.1. The rotating camera area possesses 16MP camera, which is the main highlight that also makes the device looks unique.
Oppo N3 Complete Specifications
If you’re interested in the device for the moment, then you should be aware of its complete specifications. Please don’t blame me for few outdated specifications for the price of 42,990INR, it is Oppo who got late.
- 5.5inch full HD display
- IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen panel
- Resolution of 1080×1920 pixels
- Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Chipset
- Quad-core 2.3GHz processor
- Adreno 330 GPU
- 2GB RAM and 32GB internal Storage
- Expandable storage up to 128GB
- 16MP rotating camera unit
- Autofocus, dual-LED flash, HDR
- LTE, Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth, and GPS
- Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS
- Color OS 2.0
- Fast battery charging
- 3000mAh battery
Now with all these specifications, the device looks good but only in 2014, as we already have few better options in 2015. No doubt, it is still a better smartphone with the impressive camera unit.
The camera accessory (O-Click remote control) is also there for you to take pictures without pressing the shutter button on the device. It just makes the selfie capturing process easy, which may be a huge relief, depends on your selfie love.
Just like most of the Android Skins, Color OS 2.0 isn’t that good and can hurt the stock Android experience. Also, the OS version is already outdated, but I do hope for the device to get Lollipop update soon.
The device also holds a Fingerprint reader at rear area, just like in HTC One Max. But still, the main attraction remains the camera unit.
Since you are allowed to rotate the camera, so you got same 16MP wide lens for the selfies. The camera unit also holds onto a mechanism that rotates it automatically as per the usage.
The display is another attraction but again, for the price of 43k INR, we can get devices with qHD display. I seriously hope that Oppo slash down the pricing soon.
