Last year, Oppo introduced the N1 flagship smartphone, a device equipped with a powerful processor and a 13MP rotating camera. Even now, almost a year has passed and the N1 handset ranks up amongst the best camera phones. Moving on, now the tech media world is excited about the flagship successor.
Over the past few months, multiple reports have indicated that Oppo might launch a premium made smartphone later in the year. In fact, there were reports circulating in the media that the Chinese handset maker could unveil the successor to the Find 7 with a Snapdragon 805 processor. However, it appears that Oppo is prepping to launch the legitimate successor to the N1 smartphone, instead of the Find 7. Yes, you heard it tight!
GizBot has exclusively got to know that Oppo is currently working on the successor to the N1 smartphone, which originally went on sale in China last year. Its successor, dubbed as N3, could be launched in China sometime in October.
According to our source, a high-profile senior executive over at Oppo India, the company has decided to launch the N3 smartphone in October 2014. The upcoming high-end smartphone is expected to flaunt similar styled rotating camera, like its predecessor.
So far we haven't managed to get a complete info about the device and its intriguing features, however right now you can take this information as a pinch of salt. It is also not clear what new innovation goes into making the Oppo N3 flagship smartphone.
Meanwhile, the current-generation N1 handset, which recently got a price cut in India, has a 5.9-inch FHD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and a 13MP swivel rotating camera. The handset is now priced at Rs. 32,000. Also, Oppo recently unveiled a miniature version of the N1 smartphone in markets like India and China.
Oppo's latest flagship smartphone, the Find 7, has been getting rave reviews from the mainstream media. The phone is clearly giving tough competition to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) in respect of price and features. We will have to wait and watch to find out what the successor has got in store for us.
