Oppo announces a 64-bit low-midranger - the Mirror 3

Well, well, Oppo seems to be on a roll – it released the N3 – with its motorized camera – and the R5 – the world's thinnest phone (for a time) a couple of months ago, just hours ago it announced the R1C – a 64-bit midranger, which may or may not be exclusive for Asian markets, and now, we hear that the company has announced yet another handset – the Mirror 3 (not to be confused with the sapphire-protected Desay Magical Mirror X5 we talked about yesterday).

The Oppo Mirror 3 looks a bit like an inflated R5, which can also be said about the R1C by the way – we may be looking at Oppo's new signature design language with these 3 phones. However, its specs are a bit downgraded – it sports a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128 GB via microSD), a 4.7” display with a 720 x 1280 resolution, an 8 MP / 5 MP cam combo, and a 2,000 mAh battery. The phone will run on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, of course – covered up by Oppo's own Color OS skin, version 2.0.1.

The Mirror 3 is expected to cost around $280 once it lands in stores in China and will be available in black and white. Whether the model will be available for international markets is yet unknown.

We are also expecting Oppo to announce the U3 – another 64-bit capable handset, powered by MediaTek's MT6752 solution, 2 gigs of RAM, and a 13 MP / 5 MP camera combo. It's expected to cost around $450 and, according to rumors, is supposed to be unveiled today. Stay tuned, as we keep our ear to the ground.

If you can please change the mistake you made in your article.
You state that the screen resolution is '720 x 128' though I think
you meant '720 x 1280'. It's a minor mistake in a good article

Another Chinese phone with unoptimized, laggy user interface on top...

Besides, what's the point of buying this crap? Probably no one's gonna choose this toy over Xperia Z3 compact...or iPhone 6...Pathetic...
