TENAA just got their hands on the new Oppo U3 smartphone, a cool looking phone that isn’t likely to get optical zoom as some sites are suggesting.
The Oppo U3 is another smartphone that will likely only go on sale in China and certain hand-picked Asian markets, but it is interesting still as it is one of the largest phones Oppo have made since the Oppo N1 “iron board”.
TENAA list the Oppo U3 as coming with a 5.9-inch 1920 x 1080 display, octacore 1.7Ghz processor (likely a Mediatek chip), 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and Micro SD card support.
The U3 actually look a lot like the IUNI U3 from the dark TENAA photos, with a narrow body, thin bezels and not much of a chin area (compared to other Oppo designs).
Dimensions over on TENAA state a measurements of 156.8 x 81.8 x 8mm. It’s the 8mm thickness which has us question GizmoChina’s claim that the Oppo U3 will have a 4 x Optical zoom, that and the fact there is no mention of it in the TENAA details and Oppo aren’t likely to out camera the camera centric Oppo N3 so early on in its life.
Still for the phablet lover looking for a well made Oppo phone with LTE and decent specifications, the new Oppo U3 could be one to look out for on reseller sites.
