Oppo N3 render gives us yet another look at the revolving camera
The Oppo N3 is expected to be unveiled this month. The predecessor model, the Oppo N1, offered a camera that swiveled 208 degrees, working as both a rear-facing and front-facing camera. We do expect a similar feature on the N3. Prior to today, we had seen two different renders of the device, each showing a different look for the swiveling camera on the phone. First was a render showing a cylinder styled camera that rotated. Next up was a design similar to what Oppo used for the N1. Today's render shows a rotating camera that is hidden away along the right side of the phone.

Oppo is believed to be prepping two versions of the N3, one made with a lithium-aluminum alloy, and another made with stainless steel. The former would be a lightweight version of the handset. But since it is a material used in the aerospace industry, the phone should be able to handle the regular wear and tear subjected to the average smartphone.

So far we have seen three different renders of the Oppo N3. Which one do you like best?

I like the swivel-style design the best (third in the slideshow). The first one (the new one) looks weird in my opinion, and I simply hate the cylindrical design. It feels out of place.

it reminds me of the old samsung flip phone that had a swivel camera. I think from 2005, i'd like to say...

That concept is just impractical. You couldn't leave it hanging out because it would probably snap off or get damaged, but imagine trying to take a quick picture with that thing tucked in. It would take too long. Not gonna happen.
