The Oppo N3 is the successor to the N1 and comes with an unusual and interesting camera specification. The camera module is located in a motorized element at the top of the phone that rotates up to 206 degrees. There is no need for a front camera as the main camera including the LED-flash can simply flipped around to snap a selfie or start a video-chat. The device also comes with the O-Click 2.0 bluetooth remote control that let's you operate the phone from a distance, including the camera and music player.
Inside the camera there is a 1/2.3-inch OmniVision OV16825 CMOS sensor with a 1.34 micrometer pixel-pitch. It is combined with a F2.2 aperture and Schneider-certified lens. Unfortunately there is no optical image stabilization but the camera is capable of recording Raw-format images and 4K video. There is also a 120 fps slow-motion mode and a range of special shooting modes, including Tracking Focus, Double Exposure, GIF Camera and a panorama mode that uses the swiveling camera and captures images that are up to 64MP large. A fingerprint sensor at the back allows you to protect images immediately after capture with a swipe.
The rest of the specification is decent but not quite cutting edge in 2014. A Snapdragon 801 system chip with a quad-core 2.5GHz processor is combined with 2GB of RAM. There are 32GB of built-in storage that can be expanded via a microSD-slot and the 5.5-inch TFT display comes with a 1080p resolution. The 3,000mAh Li-Po battery supports Oppo's VOOC rapid charging technology and the company claims it can charge from 0 to 75% in 30 minutes or gain 2 hours of talking time in only 5 minutes of charging.
