Oppo to use Spacecraft grade alloy for the Oppo N3?

oppo n3 alloy

Oppo have posted another teaser for the upcoming Oppo N3 launch stating that the phone will be made of the “lightest metal element”.

The new teaser was posted yesterday and included chemical elements leaving fans to guess at which alloy the new camera centric phone will be made of. If our memories serve us correctly, Lithium (Li) is it the lightest metal element, and in fact Aluminium-lithium alloy has been used in the manufacture of aircraft and even used on the fuel tank of the Space Shuttle.

Gizchina News of the week

We have already seen that Apple and Meizu have used what they refer to as Aircraft Grade alloy in their latest phones, however could Oppo have upped the anty with Spacecraft grade alloy? Whatever the new Oppo N3 is made of it is sure to be a lot lighter, and hopefully more compact, that its predecessor the Oppo N1.

What do you make of these new advances? How long will it be until we see more frequent use of other high-end materials such as carbon fibre?

    haha! 3 days ago it was aircraft grade aluminum, now they’ve given themselves a promotion???

    seems like they’ve graduated from “homemade” to “housemade”!
