Oppo N3 phone shows off rotating camera

oppo n3Oppo have been teasing their new Oppo N3 smartphone for a few weeks now and at last we get to see it. Kinda.

This is the first official photo of the new Oppo N3. This pic made an appearance on Weibo and shows the clever little rotating camera.

The Oppo N3 is rumored to come with a 5.9-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display and processing will be provided by a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, according to the word on the street.

Interestingly, Oppo has confirmed that the device will be available in two different materials – stainless steel and an aluminium-lithium alloy.

Other N3 specifications include 3GB of RAM, and that rotating camera is rumoured to be a 13 megapixel job. As it is able to perform both selfie and othie (?) duties, thanks to its 180 degree flip trick, that puts it against the new HTC EYE in the narcissist’s photo armory challenge.

The handset will come with Google’s Android OS, probably Android 4.4.4 KitKat, as yet there are no details on exactly when it will hit the stores.

The handset is set to launch at a press event in Singapore on October 29th.
