Oppo shows the rotatable camera of the N3 on video: it swivels thanks to a built-in motor
Oppo is poised to unveil a new flagship smartphone later this month, the N3, and all signs point that the device will be as compelling as its Oppo N1 predecessor, if not more. The manufacturer seems to be eager to unveil the N3 as soon as possible, too, because it has been constantly feeding us with breadcrumbs of info regarding its to-be-unveiled device. The company already showed the rotatable camera of the device several days ago and revealed its Galaxy Note 3-esque faux leather design, but this was not enough for Oppo. 

The latter released an official video which showcases the swiveling camera of the N3 in action. Dubbed “Smart rotating camera”, the camera unit does not seem much different from the one in the N1, but that's only at first sight. Surprise, surprise, it seems that the snapper of the N3 will rotate to and fro thanks to a built-in motor, while the one in the N1 has to be manually swiveled. When you opt to shoot the occasional selfie or two and select the corresponding mode in the camera app, the camera of the N3 will automatically point itself towards your face, while in the regular shooting mode the swiveling camera will position itself at the rear of the device.

The Oppo N3, which will be available in two versions (aluminum-lithium alloy and stainless steel ones), will be officially unveiled on October 29
