It’s not been so long since Oppo followed the footsteps of Samsung and unveiled the mini variants of its flagship devices N1 and Find 7, just today Oppo has pulled the curtains off from it’s new mid-range smartphone named as Oppo R3.
At 142.3 x 70.4 x 6.3 mm, Oppo claims the R3 to be the world’s thinnest LTE smartphone ever. But it looks like that Oppo forgot to keep Huawei’s Ascend P6 in view while making the statement as the device’s side measures at only 6.2mm, however the device outdated Huawei Ascend P7. The Oppo R3 supports only China’s LTE frequencies and the manufacturer hasn’t given any words about the availability of the device globally, so far it looks like a region specific device only.
Oppo R3 sports a 5 inches IPS display with 720P resolution. Oppo has fixed an 8MP shooter at the back, while a 4 MP is there on the front. The device is powered up with Qualcomm’s snapdragon 400 Quad Core CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz and a RAM of 1 GB is fixed inside. To add life to the device, Oppo has used a 2420 mAh battery. Out of the box, R3 will run on Android 4.3 JellyBean with Oppo’s very own Color OS atop. These specifications do not stand in competition to Huawei’s Ascend P7, however the device still manages to be a good mid-range choice.
Oppo is set to sell the R3 in the Chinese market for 2290 CNY ($368).
