It's a remote control. Can take a picture, or per SW I guess any function with it.

It indeed does look nice but not new idea but new for smartphones. My Samsung v200 had a rotating camera. Always loved that idea, surprised it took this long to happen again.

Love the rotating camera, that's sweet. It needs to be built very durable though, cuz people are gonna use it a lot. Nice feature Oppo.

Yeah I hope the hinge will be super tough. Prepare for self portrait ducks with higher resolution pimples than ever before!

Yeah, this one looks really nice. I'm not sure about having just one camera though. There would be no possibility of dual recording. I've never used the dual record feature before, but it seems like it would be cool. Idk, maybe it would be too gimmicky for me anyway. So it's settled, I will be checking this bad boy out when released!

Probably keeping price down like oppo's goal is to give well build product as well as a reasonable price....camera aspect may have costed more that previous model thus 600 was cheaper....just my guess

>Fujitsu

This is enough to make me think that It's better than the Z1. The rotable camera is a nice feature, lets just hope it stands the abuse.
