Fingerprint scanner appears on photo of Oppo N3?
The Oppo N3 is expected to be officially announced on October 29th. We've already revealed that this handset will feature a swiveling 13MP camera that allows you to quickly switch from taking a photo of your family and friends, to snapping a 13MP selfie to post on social media sites. Now, some new photographs of the device reveal what appears to be a fingerprint scanner underneath the Oppo branding on the rear of the phone.

The latest specs spell B-E-A-S-T. The Oppo N3 is expected to be equipped with a 5.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920, or 1440 x 2560. A quad-core Snapdragon 805 CPU is under the hood with 3GB of RAM inside. The VOOC flash charger will bring your battery back to 75% full in just 30 minutes.

Oppo will be offering two builds of this phone. There is the sturdy model made with stainless steel, and a lightweight variant that uses an aluminum-lithium alloy. On the 29th, we should find out all of the remaining specs that we are unsure about, along with information related to pricing and availability of the Oppo N3.

Thanks for the tip!

5.9inch and at the back? Would seem hard to use IMO

HTC One Max and Huawei Ascend Mate 7 both have it on the back. Some users report it isn't that difficult.

Really? Pretty sure I heard lots of people complain how it's hard to reach for the One Max. Even my friend has one and never uses it because it's almost impossible to reach and find it the first time without searching for it with your finger.

Some as in 1%? Probably. No need for such hostility Smurfette

I'm pretty sure those who use the 5.9 and 6" devices do not have small hands, therefore are able to access the fingerprint scanner with little to no trouble. It's placement is exactly where LG has placed their hardware keys, and their explanation to that is the fingers naturally fall there. Btw, no hostility from my end. Just needed to point out something you missed.

To reference Micheal Fischer's thoughts on this. He said that the One Max's problem isn't th placement of the fingerprint sensor, its the fact that it uses a swipe gesture that makes it a sub par implementation.

Well, this one seems to be a touch-type, like the Huawei Ascend Mate 7.
