Chinese handset makers have found the Indian smartphone market to be rather welcoming. Most of the names in the market like Xiaomi and Gionee have made good for themselves. And Oppo is looking to achieve something similar in the coming days.
It's hasn't been long since consumers made away with the "don't buy Chinese" mentality, and hence we have seen rise in the number of handset makers who are competing against other native names in the current playground.
Oppo's N3 handset is soon to arrive for the Indian market, and already so much is being said and written about the handset. But what are its most important features that could really make a difference? Here's a look at the 5 top things we know about it.
Color OS 2.0i
If you are anyway accustomed with the previously released Oppo Find 7, then you will also know that Oppo recently released ColorOS 2.0i for the Oppo Find 7. This is an updated ROM and brings over Android 4.4 Kitkat to the flagship phone. And we are expecting that the new device will carry it from the start.
We aren't sure on this one but there are extensive reports claiming that the new Oppo N3 will arrive with a fingerprint scanner. Reports have claimed that Oppo had indeed planned on a fingerprint scanner at the front for the same, but later shifted it to the back. But it's still to be confirmed.
While rumors in the past have claimed that Oppo's N3 will come utilizing a 20.7MP rear camera, those rumors were soon deemed at false with Oppo CEO confirming that the handset will come with a 16MP camera. The phone is also said to arrive with a 1/2.3-inch camera sensor.
Headphone Jack at the Side
It is quite interesting to note that the new Oppo N3 will indeed arrive with headphone jack that has been placed at the side of the handset. Oppo, moving away from the age old custom of providing the jack either at the top or bottom of the phone, is offering it on the right side of the handset.
Motorized Rotating Camera
Oppo already showed this feature off via a video that the company released officially. The video showed the camera pod on the N3 moving automatically, and later was confirmed by a source that it indeed does. However, we don't know what special features will be incorporated here.
