Oppo N3 unveiled: World’s first Swiveling Camera

Last year Oppo redefined the selfie by releasing a smartphone that could use the primary camera, as a front facing camera as well. This year, they’ve improvised on that, and launched the Oppo N3, the world’s first smartphone with a Motorized camera. That’s right. Yesterday, in Singapore, Oppo did the unthinkable. The camera on the Oppo N3 is Motorized, and can be swiveled 206 degrees, and is capable of taking pictures using free-stop and multi-angle shooting. The camera can also be controlled using a remote control, which Oppo calls the O-Click. The 16 Megapixel shooter can also take Panoramic shots, in both Landscape and Potrait. The phone also features Target-tracking focus shift function, which follows a moving target to help users create action photos and videos. The camera, which was developed with Schnieder Electric, also has the ability to take 64 MP images! (Upscaled from 16, Ultrapixel-like technology) Other than the revolutionary camera, the specs are pretty standard (Not by any means Low-end!!). The phone comes with a Snapdragon 801 CPU and 2GB of ram, paired with 32GB of in-built storage. With a 5.5 inch display, the pictures you take with the camera are going to look wonderful. The VOOC Rapid charging system gets the battery to 75% in just 30 minutes, with just a 5 minute charge allowing a 2 hour call. Stay tuned for our full review of the Oppo N3, in the coming weeks. Will you be getting the N3? Are Selfies really that important to you? Let us know in the comments down...

Android 5.0 release date confirmed. Will your device get it?

  A note sent to app developers which was obtained by Android Police informs developers that the Software Development Kit for Android 5.0 is now available. It further advises developers that they can start working and testing their apps on the Android 5.0 platform. It concludes by revealing that Android 5.0 will be available to consumers starting 3rd November. Considering both the Nexus 9 and the new Nexus 6 will be available starting early November, this is quite predictable. Both of them will come preloaded with Android 5.0, and it makes sense for Google to push the update out to earlier devices at this time too. As we have seen in the past, Google’s own Nexus devices will be the first to get the update, followed by the Google Play devices. HTC has also confirmed that the One M8 and One M7 will be getting the update worldwide, “Within 90 days of the software release from Google”. Motorola has also confirmed that they’ll be releasing the update later this year for their phones. Thanks to the new Material design, Android 5.0 lollipop has a whole new look and feel to it, making it a significant update over Kit Kat. The big question is, will your device get it? The list below shows the phones that have been confirmed to get the update (Though we can’t guarantee a timeline at this point): GOOGLE Nexus 4 Nexus 5 Nexus 7 (2012) Nexus 7 (2013) Nexus 10 GOOGLE PLAY EDITION HTC One (M7) HTC One (M8) Samsung Galaxy S4 Moto G Sony Z Ultra LG G Pad 8.3 ANDROID ONE Micromax Canvas A1 Spice Dream UNO Karbonn Sparkle V MOTOROLA Motorola Moto X Moto X 2nd Gen. Moto G Moto G 4G LTE Moto G 2nd Gen Moto E Droid Ultra Droid Maxx Droid Mini  SONY Xperia Z Xperia ZL Xperia ZR Xperia Z1 Xperia Z1s Xperia Z Ultra Xperia Z1 Compact Xperia Z2 Xperia Z2 Tablet Xperia Z3 Xperia Z3 Compact Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact HTC One (M7) One (M8) One mini One mini 2 NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet XOLO Xolo One ONEPLUS OnePlus One LG G3 G2 Samsung has not yet made it clear which of it’s devices will be getting the update. The Note 4, Note 3, Galaxy S5, and the Galaxy S4 should be getting it, if rumors are to be believed.

Oppo Mobile launches in Australia

It’s official, Oppo has finally made its way to the Australian market. The chinese manufacturer will be selling four of their smartphones including their new flagship device, the Find 7. Other devices that will be available are the Find 7A, Neo 5 and N1 mini. Head of marketing at Oppo Mobile Australia, Michael Tran, said – “At Oppo we’re focused on innovation and are passionate about exploring the latest that technology has to offer, while providing our consumers with high quality, state of the art devices. We feel that Australia as a country mirrors these values, so we’re excited to begin our journey/exploration into Western markets here.” The great thing about having a local company is that you don’t need to send the phone overseas if it’s faulty. Oppo did say that they will have a local customer and repair service, although nothing mentioned where it would be (I’m assuming it will be around the Sydney area). If you are eager to buy an Oppo smartphone, oppomobile.com.au is now live and can be purchased the phones mentioned above. I do have the Find 7 with me and I can’t wait to share you my thoughts about the device! Oppo N1 Review   Founder of Tech4Geeks and content creator on YouTube...

Oppo find 7a now on pre-order in U.S.

The Oppo Find 7a has shown up on oppostyle.com just as promised for the version which is available for the U.S.. It is shown for $499 and comes with 3 free gifts when pre-ordered. The gifts are an extra battery, a case, and a 32GB SanDisk SD Card. The 7a was announced along with the Oppo Find 7 but looses some of the features such as a Full HD resolution vs a QHD display of 2560 x 1440 found on the Find 7. The clock speed is reduced to 2.3 GHz on the Snapdragon 801 processor, has 2GB of RAM vs 3GB of RAM, and the battery capacity is reduced to 2,800 mAh. The same awesome camera of 13-MP that creates 50-MP images is found on the 7a. Although Oppo isn’t very popular in the U.S., it is still a good deal if you don’t have any issues with a Chinese manufactured phone in the U.S.. Hi, my name is Mark and I love to eat, sleep, and breathe tech! My line is “No such thing as tech overload!” As long as it has a power button I’m in! But seriously, I can’t get enough of the latest tech...
