The Oppo N3 is now official. It doesn’t exactly have the pop-out swiveling camera we thought it would sport, but it does have this cool, motorized camera that selfie addicts will surely love.
Just like with the N1, the Oppo N3 comes with a camera that rotates up to 206 degrees to function as either a front- or rear-facing shooter. It has a 16MP resolution, dual-mode LED flash and f/2.2 aperture. The thing is also motorized, which allows it to track the objects as they move about. There’s also an O-Click 2.0 Bluetooth accessory that can be used to remotely adjust the camera angle. See it in action in the promotional video below.

But, that’s enough about the camera. The Oppo N3 is also a powerhouse, what with the Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, fingerprint sensor and all other high-end specs jam-packed in it. Plus, it comes with an optional dual SIM configuration too. It may not have a razor-thin profile like the concurrently released Oppo R5, but the N3 is clearly a flagship smartphone.
The Oppo N3 will be priced around $649 and reach the Philippines sometime in December 2014.
UPDATE: Oppo N3 is now available in the Philippines for Php29,990.
