Chinese company Oppo has a new high end phablet coming out soon called the N3, a device that will have an enormous screen and a unique take on the smartphone camera. The handset will be landing in October, which means the leaks are now gathering pace and there is plenty we now know about this device. Today its high end aspirations have been confirmed with a spec list that packs some of the best hardware currently available.On top of that, there was also a new render of the device that shows off its unique turning camera too. As you can see in the image, the Oppo N3 is a sizeable phone and the major talking point is definitely the camera, which is a single lens that sits on a swivelling piece that is separate from the overall body of the device. This means you can use the sizeable 13 megapixel sensor to take traditional rear facing shots, or you can flip it over 206 degrees to turn it into the ultimate selfie front facing snapper. In terms of specs, the N3 is a true phablet with a 5.9-inch screen with a Full HD 1080p resolution (373ppi). If this is anything like the N7, with the camera housing this will be a gargantuan smartphone that dwarfs just about anything else out there. Elsewhere there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processer under the hood that has been coupled with 3GB of RAM. Yesterday we revealed that Oppo is giving customer a choice of which material they want their N3 to be made from. The company is offering the device in either good old plastic, stainless steel, or an Aluminum Lithium alloy that the Chinese brand says is the strongest and lightest in the world. I imagine that there will be different price tiers for each material, otherwise we would all just choose the metal one. source: Zaeke
