OPPO R3 Goes Official with 5-Inch HD Screen

Today, Chinese mobile phone maker OPPO has officially announced the upcoming availability of a new handset in the R series, in the form of OPPO R3.

The new mobile phone has gone official during a press event held in Beijing and should arrive on the market in the not-too-distant future with 5-inch IPS touchscreen display capable of delivering a 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. The handset is set to land on shelves in China before the end of this month and will sport a price tag of 2299 Yuan ($369/€273) attached to it when that happens. The specs list that OPPO R3 will be released with is quite appealing, especially when considering the market segment that the phone is aimed at. The mobile phone was announced with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor inside, as well as with Adreno 305 graphics. Moreover, the handset sports 1GB of RAM, along with 8GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot to allow users to expand the available storage.

On the back, the new device features an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash, most probably capable of recording videos in full HD resolution. A 5-megapixel front camera is also present on the new smartphone, so that users could snap selfies and make video calls while on the go. The smartphone also sports OPPO’s O-Video feature, which was designed to combine both photos and videos and then upload them online. The functionality also makes it possible for users to re-scan images with their mobile phones in order to automatically play the video, as a recent article on fonearena explains. Moreover, the new device packs support for 4G LTE and 3G networks, as well as WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. It also includes a GPS receiver to offer support for navigation services.

Moreover, the specs list of OPPO R3 boasts a 3.5mm audio jack and a 2420mAh battery. The phone is only 6.3mm thick and weighs 140 grams. According to the Chinese vendor, this is the slimmest 4G LTE capable handset. OPPO has unveiled the mobile phone with its own Color OS 1.4 loaded on top. The platform, which powers other smartphones in the company’s lineup as well, is based on Google’s Android operating system. Unfortunately, OPPO has not provided specific info on when we might see the new device made official on other markets out there as well, though we suspect that it will launch it in additional countries in the not-too-distant future.
