Oppo launches a 64-bit midranger
Oppo – the manufacturer who brought us the (short-lived) thinnest phone in the world, this past October – the Oppo R5 – and the unique, motorized swivel camera-equipped Oppo N3 – has today launched a new handset, but, unlike its siblings, this little fellow had no noise made around its launch.

The handset in question is called Oppo 3000 and is a compact midranger with a price tag around the $256 mark. It sports a 64-bit 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, expandable to 128 GB via microSD, and an 8 MP Sony IMX179 sensor equipped main camera, coupled with a 5 MP wide-angle smiley face shooter. A 2,000 mAh battery keeps the lights on and, of course, it supports Oppo's ultra-fast VOOC charging technology.

Shaped unmistakably in the Oppo Find series design language, this guy has a 720p 4.7” display and measures at 5.39 x 2.7 x 0.35 inches (137 x 68.8 x 8.95mm), which brings its screen-to-body ratio around the unimpressive 65%.

The Oppo 3000 is a dual-SIM handset that supports dual standby and China Unicom's 4G network, though, it is unknown whether it will become internationally available.

In short a slightly jacked up response to Redmi 2, that just got an Enhanced Edition out by the way with nice spec bumps to meet the threat of HTC Desire 626 but with that price tag now has to deal with Lenovo P70's 4000mAh batt?

Anyone with $250-ish and down today are just giddy.

Yeah thumbed you up that's one other plus pun fully intended... Don't know what's up w/ Oppo really. It's not like they really need to fully attack all the price points that they don't have to.

Oppo becomes a new Samsung with these prices... It is a matter of time when they will start falling down.
