Oppo has unveiled a new smartphone in China today. It’s called Oppo 3000 and it’s already up for grabs in the mainland, in an interesting twist.
Unlike other Oppo handsets, this one can’t claim the title of “world’s thinnest smartphone”, nor does it come with an innovative swiveling camera. The Oppo 3000 is just a midrange device, aiming to deliver a polished experience to those who aren’t looking for top of the line specs.
Speaking of those, the Oppo 3000 comes with a 4.7-inch 720p touchscreen, a 5 MP wide-angle front camera, and an 8 MP Sony IMX179 rear camera sensor, which boasts f/2.0 aperture and has a five-element lens. All of these things should add up to decent image quality produced by this phone.
Running the show here is Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 SoC, with a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU in tow and Adreno 306 GPU. The Oppo 3000 has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, dual-SIM functionality (dual-standby), 4G LTE support, NFC, and a 2,000 mAh battery.
It runs Android 4.4 KitKat underneath Oppo’s own Color OS 2.01. The device is being sold in China for CNY 1,599, which is about $ 256 or 226. That’s quite a bit more than what’s being asked for similarly specced handsets such as the new Xiaomi Redmi 2, so it’s unclear how successful the Oppo 3000 will turn out to be, sales-wise. Another unknown is whether it will ever be offered for purchase elsewhere.
