Oppo are developing a history of coming up with terrific teaser trailers for their phones before the launch date and today their Facebook account posted a new teaser picture showing the old school land-line house phone with the words “this was the phone’ in text underneath. In addition, the top comment shown here asks if the upcoming Oppo release will take it to the Galaxy Note 4 in terms of processing power and camera. The page administrator then replied with a post that says a rumor about the new handset from Oppo being a “camera-centric phone,” suggesting that the rumors are true. That’s colossal news that the admin went out of their way to confirm that for us so we know that the the final disposition is creating a better handset than the Note 4. Worst case scenario it will rival it if nothing else.
Due to its early developmental stages, we do not have confirmation on any specs yet for the new flagship this year. Sources close to us are suggesting the N3 will come with the Snapdragon 805 SoC, but nothing is confirmed just yet. Whats’ more, we know there isn’t the N2 in the lineup, so getting to the bottom of why they skipped the number will be our top priority. However, we do have a run down of the last N1 specifications.
The N1 comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box after being announced in September of 2013. It has the physical display size of 5.9-inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution, 373 ppi pixel density, IPS LCD screen technology and scratch-resistant glass.
To recap, if you wanted a new smartphone with a spacious display, extremely high pixel density screen, quad core processor, NFC, high-resolution display, high-resolution camera and oodles of RAM this is well worth looking into.
Without question the main focal point Oppo love to focus on is the camera capabilities. The Find 7 came with a whopping 50 megapixels and the original N1 has the ability to rotate the camera and use the 13 megapixel rear-facing shooter as the front-facing ‘selfie’ camera. An astonishing feat that deserved more press coverage than it got. What’s more impressive is we are seeing new phones such as the iPhone 6 launch with nothing special in the camera still for 2014.
Holding back the N1 was the Snapdragon 600 system chip that is nothing more than mid-range at best. In reality we see mid-range smartphones come with the Snapdragon 800 chipset, and many of those weren’t much newer than than last year’s device. If this phone is going to blow people away it will need to upgrade the SoC as the hardware and processing power is a feature many assess before deciding on what to purchase.
