Oppo N3

The N3, touted to redefine mobile photography, was presented by Sean Deng, CEO of Oppo Singapore. The latest addition to the company’s N series sports the first motorized swiveling camera on a smartphone. With a swipe of the screen, the back of the N3, or the Oppo O-click, the camera rotates on its own to take selfies, and 64MP vertical and horizontal panoramas, among others. The 16MP camera boasts a 1 2/3-inch CMOS sensor, Schneider lens, and a 1.34-micrometer pixel size. What these all mean is your photos should contain a great amount of detail.
