Oppo N3 with 16MP motorized camera and R5 the world’s thinnest handset outed

The Oppo N3 smartphone which is the successor to the widely popular N1, and the R5 handset have been made official at last. Both devices are pretty impressive ones with the former flaunting a rotating camera and other great features, while the latter has earned the title of the world’s slimmest smartphone.
Let’s start with the Oppo N3 which augments the rotating camera design launched on its predecessor. While the concept is still the same, the company has thrown in a better snapper which is an OmniVision OV16825 16MP sensor and dual LED flash. The module is also motorized and you’ll be able to move it around through simple gestures on the screen.
