Oppo released a new smartphone in China yesterday, the rather fetching Oppo U3, a handset that is bigger than both the Oppo N3 and the Oppo N5. The device is pretty big, but it carries a premium finish and is decked with some solid upper mid-range specs, although it seems destined for Southeast Asia only.The Oppo U3 has a 5.9-inch screen with a Full HD 1080 x 1920 resolution, and that panel covers 75% of the handset, making it a sleek looking thing. Other specs include a 64-bit MediaTek MT6752 clocked at 1.7GHz and powered by eight cores. Elsewhere it has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of on board storage, and a micro SD card slot, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The U3 will be powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat, comes with dual SIM capabilities, a 13 megapixel Sony made camera on the rear and a 5 megapixel lens on the front. The smartphone is available in China and will cost the same as about $451.
