Fresh OPPO N3 renders point at an N1-esque design; Snapdragon 805, 3GB RAM in tow


oppo n3

The OPPO N3 is going to be a hard phone to miss. It’s successor, the N1, lives in our memory as one of the best camera phones around till date, and by the looks of it, the N3 will do that and more!

A couple of days back, we learnt that the N3 will be available in a couple of different body construction options, in steel and aluminium alloy. That is pretty interesting alright, but the N3 has a couple more tricks in its bag. Rumours suggest that the camera-centric smartphone will come with the Snapdragon 805 SoC to become the most powerful OPPO yet; along with that, there’s the customary 3GB of RAM we’ve seen in all flagships this year.

OPPO N3 renders

The N1 was tagged obnoxiously huge by a lot of the tech community for having a massive 5.9 inch screen, back in 2013. Come 2014, and everyone’s used to the fact that smartphone are going to be big, no matter what you think. Even then, 5.9 inches is a bit larger than average. Anyway, coming back to the N3, we’re expecting to see the same 5.9-inch display this time round as well. Unlike the Find 7 that packs a mammoth 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, the N3 is believed to come with a (more easy on the eyes?) 1080p resolution as its predecessor.

Snapdragon 805, 3GB RAM and a 1080p screen… it all sounds pretty good. Add to that a killer camera, which is expected to be the N3’s main feature, and it looks like we have a winner on our hands. If only you can live with a 5.9-inch screen though; we however expect it to have a smaller footprint than the N1!

    People, DO NOT BUY OPPO! they are the worst company at software support! I have OPPO Find 7a and its the only $499 phone on jelly bean! Oppo N1 is also on 4.3 android jellybean and they (oppo) have forgotten about it! DO NOT WASTE your money on this incompetence BS company.

    No I do not work for another chinese mobile company, am just a customer from the UK who got con by OPPO. As i said above i have find 7a which is still on 4.3jb, they told us that kitkat is coming soon back in june/july and we are in september now… still no kitkat! Instead of giving us kitkat they are giving us (oppo customers) color os 2.0 upwards betas version which are fulll of bugs and battery life is absolutely SH#TE!

    DO NOT BUY OPPO!

      Of course they can’t keep up with their OS support since they’ve got the full burden of supporting ColorOS.

      Yep thats how its done … low prices , no support but at least u got a phone with snapDragon … Solution : go XDA http://forum.xda-developers.com/find-7 and upgrade to CyanogenMod 11 , same as Oneplus One , best software support ever …

        So after spending half a grand on a phone (maybe just cuz am old fashion but I thinks its a lot for a phone) this is those “DO IT YOURSELF” kind of phone? If so, OPPO should put that on the boxes and see how the sales will go! Something like this “if you want the latest android version, Do it yourself by following XDA forum” or may another one like this “if you want the latest get a Nexus”, you know like they do it on the f###king condom boxes “99% effective”.

        DO NOT BUY OPPO PEOPLE! DO NOT waste your money on this incompetence bs of a company.

          Well, that depends on everyone. Imo samsung software sucks, and their phones are quite expensive.
          But no one says you have to buy it, they offer that prouct, at that price and with that support. Is their decission not ours.

          P.D. i agree that their soft support is bad

    You buy a Chinese phone then don’t expect software support. It’s next to nothing. Only buy one if you think there will be ROMs available for it.
