Oppo U3 certified by TENAA, offers 5.9-inch screen and 13MP camera with a 4X Optical Zoom

Oppo U3 certified by TENAA, offers 5.9-inch screen and 13MP camera with a 4X Optical Zoom
Back in November, we told you about a visit to the AnTuTu site made by a device called the Oppo U3. Well, we are happy to report that the device has been certified by China's TENAA, which is the country's equivalent to the FCC in the states. If TENAA has its numbers right, and it usually does, this will be the thinnest smartphone to offer a 4X Optical Zoom. At 9mm, the Oppo U3 is thinner than the ASUS ZenFone Zoom, which is 11.95mm thick.

Some of the Oppo U3 specs seem to be different than what we saw on the AnTuTu visit. Instead of the 4.6-inch screen mentioned on the benchmark site, TENAA has the phone listed as having a 5.9-inch display, with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The AnTuTu visit did reveal the octa-core 1.7GHz processor that TENAA states is under the hood of the Oppo U3. There will be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage. A microSD slot is available for those needing additional storage. Besides the 13MP camera on back, there is a 5MP "selfie" snapper up front. Pricing and availability is unknown.

We also expect Oppo to unveil a new headset. The Oppo PM-3 can be seen in some of the photos in the video slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!
