Measuring 142.3 x 70.4 x 6.3 mm, the R3 seem to be Oppo’s thinnest handset ever. In fact, Oppo is presenting it as the world’s thinnest LTE smartphone (though it appears to be supporting only China’s LTE frequencies).
The R3 isn’t a high-end device, but still manages to offer decent features: a 5-inch 720p IPS display, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable internal memory. Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Oppo’s own ColorOS is on board. The new handset weighs 140 grams, and includes a 2,420 mAh battery.
Oppo will sell the R3 in China starting this week, for about $368 (2,290 CNY in local currency). The company didn’t say if it plans to release the smartphone (or variations of it) internationally. You can check out some live photos showing the R3 in the slideshow below:

This whole slim thing is getting ridiculous. Back in the days of good old nokia symbian phones.. I dont think they were all that difficult to handle. 5mm & 6mm is too thin. I mran, i wanna feel my phone in hand. Too thick is difficult to handle & so is too thin. And very thin phones tend to 'cut' into your palm, making it painful during a long phone call. And ahain, if it is too thin, i wont feel it in my palm & that can lead to an unscheduled contact between the phone & concrete pavement. I cannot believe that manufacturers continue to have misplaced priorities. Most people will prefer a phone wirh a huge battery even if it is a bit chubby.. On the contrary, manufacturers dont think twice to skimp on battery life in order to slice of the last mm in thickness. I wonder who or what started this ridiculous trend of size zero phones. Customers prefer functionality over form. Give me a bloatfree phone with good battery life, dual front facing speakets & i won't mind if it means a few extra mm in L*W*H
