Oppo N3 is latest  N series mobile phone featured with an automated and motorized swivel camera while Oppo R5 is the slimmest smartphone with a thickness of 4.85mm looking similar to iPhone 6. R5 is much thinner than the Gionee Elife S5.1 that recently won the Guinness book of world record of being the thinnest mobile phone. Oppo R5 is so thin that it lacks the 3.5mm audio port and hearing with headsets will call for a need of wireless bluetooth headset besides due to thin nature the 13 mega pixel camera bulges out from the upper left corner. Now good thing is that this bulged camera will not suffer scratches as reported by the designers unless some hard force is applied. Moreover with R5 you will feel the premium touch and hold of a Apple iPhone 6 besides it is less slippery than iPhone 6 too and has passed several stress test on bending cases and only a considerable amount of force could only bend it. Oppo N3 with swivel camera and Color OS features are presently costing around $649 and the slim Oppo R5 at $499.

N3 is characterized by a 201 degree rotating motorized swivel camera of 16 mega pixel and can take images up to 64 Megapixel clarity with auto free -stop and multi-angle shooting mechanism. N3 also has fingerprint sensor for phone access and creating guest access accounts and also includes a new O-Click remote to rotate camera and play music while away from the phone. The VOOC charging a new rapid mini charging system from Oppo allows the phone to get charged up to 75% in 30 minutes and with 5 minutes charging you can make a 2 hour call.

  Talking about Oppo R5, it comes with a 5.2 inch Super AMOLED display also 1920×1080 full HD like N3. R5 is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 octa-core CPU and as stated earlier  has a thin body of 4.85mm due to which audio port for headsets are not available. The surface of R5 is surrounded by a metallic frame which Oppo’s designers as named it as macro arc. Oppo has slim body like iPhone 6 but it has a 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera. The PI 2.0 flash shot technology allows the picture clarity of up to 50 Megapixel grade. The device has ColorOS 2.0 on the top of Android 4.4 with improved UI features and bottom screen swipe to have clear navigation experience. The phone is provided with 2G RAM and 16GB internal memory with no capability to add external storage like iPhone 6. R5 also has VOOC mini rapid charger for its charging purpose.

   Oppo Electronics Corp.
