Oppo R3 gets announced in China

Earlier this month Oppo announced its N1 Mini smartphone, a not so “mini” smartphone. Not even 2 weeks later we get yet another device announcement from Oppo, the Oppo R3.

Oppo R3 shares the 720p 5″ screen with the N1, but doesn’t have that fancy rotating camera on the top. It is running Android 4.3 JellyBean with Oppo’s ColorOS on top of it. On the specification side, the R3 is running a Snapdragon 400 SoC along with 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD. The phone of course has 2 cameras, on the back it sports an 8MP shooter, while there’s a 5MP shooter on the front. The device is powered by a 2420mAh battery, which we hope will be enough to power this thing throughout the day.

The most notable thing on this phone is its thickness, or should we say thinness. It is only 6.3mm thick, which is quite impressive, despite the fact it is not the thinnest phone around. That title is taken by Umeox X5 which is only 5.6mm thick.

The device launch was in China and it will cost around $370 there, there was no mention of an international availability though.
