The Oppo N3 will have a motorized swivelling camera and a high price tag
Oppo's physical stores in China are anticipating the launch of the company's upcoming flagship, the Oppo N3, by painting their windows with pre-order and availability information. Yeah, painted windows and hand-written signs are still a thing! And thanks to them, it was confirmed that the Oppo N3 features a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 16MP motorized rotating camera, and a plump price tag of $700 (4928 Yuan)! Although it doesn't reach into iPhone 6 pricing territory, one can buy a pair of IUNI U3, Xiaomi Mi 4, or Meizu MX4 smartphones for that kind of money, and still have some leftover cash to party!

Anyway, the Oppo N3 is shaping up to be a worthy successor of the Oppo N1, which we remember as an interesting, but quite flawed device. It's one of those phones that jumped to the market straight out of the innovations lab, thus it had a comically large footprint, a fiddly backside touch panel, and photos from the 13MP camera didn't live up to expectations from a high-end device. That's not to say the Oppo N1 lacked potential. Hopefully, we'll see some of it unfold in its successor, the N3. It will be announced on October 29, and we'll get to see what its motorized, dual-LED flash touting, faux leather (complete with stitches!) covered 16MP swiveling camera can deliver.
